We started with a warm golden color on the walls. It was nice. I liked it, but I wanted an update.
The new color is "Storm" by Benjamin Moore.
The color looks great in day light or evening light.
Even though it's a "cool" tone, I still think the room is warm.
I've been wanted to change the honey oak banisters since the day we moved in!
Finally... Now they're stained Espresso.
And the back stairway, which features a family wall, looks great with the grey color.
It's amazing what a little paint will do for a room. Feels so fresh and new!
I painted my studio as well. I'll share those photos next week. I still need to hang a few things.
So what do you think? Paint is good, yes? It's such an easy way to change a look. And this was done over the course of 5 workdays. Not too long to live in chaos (though it feels that way at the time).
If you've done some sprucing up using paint or stain, let me know about it! Do you have before/after photos on your blog or on Pinterest perhaps? Give me a link in the comments below. Happy Painting!
