More Before & After Pics

My favorite doorknob in the house...
authentic crystal, so cool!


This is the lightswitch cover in our bedroom. I chose to leave it because it's so vintage. Never mind the dust you can see, that just adds to the authenticity right?

Entry way before

Entry way after....

This was the "blue room." Everything was blue: the door, the baseboards, the walls, the ceiling and even the blinds were spray painted blue. It was like standing in an aquarium.

Office after...the next thing to go is that ugly red chair

Taj's room was blue room #2. It wasn't as overpowering as the office, but I think that's just because this room is smaller.

I like this color so much better than the blue. I know the light fixture looks like it has tentacles, but they're really crystals. Yeah, I know, a little girly for a boy's room, but Taj doesn't know the difference and I'm sure it won't threaten his boyhood.

Even our bedroom had wallpaper in it, so glad to see that gone!
I know this looks really green. It was supposed to be a sage green, but turned out to be "safari" green. Boy were we surprised. Bran was freaking out more about it than I was. He didn't want to paint our bedroom this color; he tried to pawn it off on Taj's room. I like bold colors though, and it's really not so bad, kinda grows on you. That light fixture will also be coming down, as soon as we recover from the costs of this paint job!

It all looks SO great! How fun to do makeovers like that. I'm actually really digging the green bedroom too!

Wow, your house looks great! I love all the colors. I wish I dared paint more in my house. Taj's little footprints in the snow are so cute. He's getting so big!

No way were the blinds blue too!!! I can't believe that anyone would ever even think of doing that! It all looks great!

I love all the colors! I am trying to talk Nathan into letting me paint ONE wall red, just one wall, but he isn't so sure about it. I guess I will have to just do it one day while he is at work. ;)
