Painting: Before and After

Hello, lovely friends!

It took us six days and the help of my father-in-law, mother-in-law, and two sisters-in-law but we finally have all the painting done! My sister asked me to show pictures of the house painted before we moved any furniture in. These were taken about an hour before we started the big move in.

Living Room ~ Before

The Living Room ~ After

I really love how the color lightens up the whole room and really makes the white shutters stand out!

The color is Cappuccino (MSL203) in
Behr Ultra in Satin

The Bathroom ~ Before

The Bathroom ~ After

I absolutely love how the sage green color lightens up the bathroom. It all looks so fresh and clean!

Look at that beautiful beadboard. I really adore how it looks with the sage paint!

The color is Soft Sage (GLG18) by Glidden
We did a color match and used Behr Ultra Semi-Gloss

The Bedroom ~ Before 

The Bedroom ~ After

We used the same paint in the bedroom and bathroom. The sage is so much prettier than the blue. It really matches all of my bedroom decor so well.

The Dining Area ~ Before

The Dining Area ~ After

I really love how the yellow turned out!

The color is Whisper Yellow (300A-2) in Behr Ultra Satin

This was literally a few minutes before we left to meet everyone who was helping us move. We didn't have time to replace the plates over the outlets and I didn't get a picture of the kitchen as my sister-in-law was still doing the finishing touches in there. 
Isn't family the best?! We are so blessed with our families!

We are all moved in now and slowly unpacking and setting up. 

A big thanks to everyone that helped us paint and move in! 

Have a great week!

How exciting, Jamie! I'm sure you'll be fluffing things as you set them up. The new paint colors look great. I love green in a bathroom. You'll have to show us pictures next with the rooms furnished!
