Let there be paint!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashley Hawthorne @ 3:59 pm

Day one of the renovation was Sunday!  Whew!  We did it!  We got started!!!  Mostly what I wanted to do was try out paint colors and decide on the main ones- exterior brick paint color, interior wall color (and trim) for the main room (kitchen/living/dining) and down the halls.  I also decided on a paint for the kitchen cabinets.  YAY!  A bonus for the day was Kyle stopping by on his way from playing in the woods and ripping out all of the pink carpet.  Such a relief!  Woohoo!  Here are the colors I selected (so far).

Paint colors




  1. Hooray for progress!

    I love the palette. Is the pattern above right the one that will be on the floor? Or is that just a fun graphic device for showing us the color?

  2. Love what you are doing. You are really turning me onto grey…I recently painted a medium sized canvas just for fun and used a ton of greys in it…love it…definitely outside my box.

    Also, what font are you using in the post descriptions? I’m always on the hunt for cool fonts.
