I can’t believe I didn’t post this when we first finished the project in the spring. On the bright side, it’s that sort of a November day when celebrating the change of a room with an explosion of colour is a good thing.
The whole house was painted grey when we bought it. Pale, chilly grey. If you’ve seen glimpses of our walls in photos, you’ll know that colour makes our world go round. When we were walking through the house considering a purchase, it seemed to ask me to buy it so that we could reclaim it and make it homey.
We bought it. We painted it. Room after room, we painted it. Only the bathroom was left. It featured grey wallpaper with pansies, a stained and chipped shell sink, and warm wooden cabinets.
This spring, its time had come. Our first project involving more than just paint. New counter top, new flooring, new low-flow, dual flush toilet.
And now, the AFTER:
We painted out the cabinets and the door, adding to the perceived space of the room. We finally found a place for the beautiful stained glass Rainer’s parents had given us – it makes a lovely privacy screen that plays with the shifting light. To make it even more of a feature, we painted the cupboard below it and the window frame around it a playful mix of blue and green.
Colour: lovely, isn’t it?
