Letting go of Control of the Brush!

The moving truck was due any day….and …. the painters had my entire house taped off, and the ceilings were down and painted in record time.
My original intention was to just have the living room and dining room painted and I would do the rest myself.  I’ve painted a few rooms in my life so what were a few more right?
As the hours went by I kept adding rooms!! In the end I had everything ceiling, baseboard, crown molding, door and wall painted except the basement and the bonus room.
SO WORTH IT!!!
I had a fresh clean slate to bring in the furniture and start decorating!  I let go of the CONROL issues and CHEAPNESS issues and I am so relieved I did!  I can save in other ares.  Time is worth money!!  And I saved TONS of that!!
I also did not have much time to pick out my paint colors because the guys were rolling….
Here is my basic pallet I used in the house.  Snowbound looks more gray on the screen.  It is my favorite “White” ever.  I used it in my dining room in my last house and knew I wanted it again.
Here are a few SUPER quick photos I snapped right before movers rolled in with furniture.
Snowbound in the Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen.  White Trim.
Repose Gray in the hallway and laundry room and boys bathroom.
Mindful Gray in the half bath and boys bedrooms.
Where is my blue? Last minute I added Woodlawn Blue to Master.  I’m not sure about it…it’s REALLY blue in there.  But, I’m keeping it for now.
OK…gotta go unpack some boxes!!

    It looks fantastic! You did a great job, love all of the colors. So much better to have it all done before you move the furniture in, don’t you think? We’re working on kitchen cupboards right now, started the lower cabinets with Annie Sloan Pure White but my DH isn’t too happy with the textured look it gives. I think he’s decided he wants to do the uppers with BM White Dove – I think they will look fine together. I was hoping to do a little distressing but he’s just not into that look – bummer! Anyway, I just love your new house! The view, the porch, the bonus room! What a wonderful time of year – enjoy your new home!
