Home Updates

Kitchen before, had white walls:

We painted the Dining room the same as the living room:
The kitchen color is a very light purple/blue/gray:
LIVING ROOM:
This is not the best "before" shot, but the living room walls were white and the mantle was cream:
After: we went with a cross between a sand and a tan.

I promise the mantle is a much deeper chocolate than it looks in the picture, we will change the tile on the fireplace to make it a sand/tan when we get a chance, and we are working on hiding the TV cords ;)
GUEST BEDROOM
White walls before:

After:

GUEST BATHROOM
All white before:
Notice the white floor:
Cory's parents had some left over tile from their kitchen and they helped us w/ this floor:
We went with a vibrant green, and did a green and brown theme:


We changed out the face plates on the switches and plug outlets:

And found a $30 faucet at Home Depot:
The TO DO List:
Finish changing out all face plates, switches and outlets in the living room
Find an area rug for the living room (we are shopping and pricing)
A few touch ups all over from careless mistakes and paint bleeding through the painters tape
Finish painting trim in Carson's room (wall is painted, I will post that on baby blog)
Price and pick out tile for the fireplace
Maybe some landscaping, who knows!
WILL WE EVER BE DONE!
Oh and our bedroom and bathroom won't be painted for a couple of years...we are so tired of painting!

It all looks great! Cant wait to see it in person. It takes forever to update a house!!! (There is always something to do!)

Looks great! The new paint looks like it made it "home-ier" than the white walls. Love it!
