Upstairs Paint Before & After

We spent Labor Day weekend painting and painting and painting...no vacations or camping for this family. 

Since then I have been organizing and re-assembling my office.

Lets refresh on what the space looked like before...


 ...and here it is now....chair is just temporary (in case you were thinking I thought it looked good that way).


Here's a before shot of the other end of the room...


and here's part of the after (the other wall is holding a pile of yard sale stuff that isn't staying..) and you can see the newly painted credenza has found its home!


The consistent wall color is one huge improvement to the whole upstairs. Before there was an awkward line on the ceiling where the paint transitioned from the brown in the hallway to the blue in the office.

It was weird!

Here's a before of the hallway with it's much darker paint...


Here is the after. You can see the difference in paint if you look up by the light fixture. We found this light AFTER we painted, so I have some touch-ups to do.

More about the lighting upgrades to come.

I love this shot looking towards the bathroom. It is so light and bright now!


The color we used is called Sandpiper by Martha Stewart mixed in Glidden Duo Eggshell from Home Depot. We used the same color in Ellery's Room, the Kid's Bathroom and the Laundry room.

The upstairs is getting close to done. Just a few more things to do in the bathroom, a little decorating to do in the office and then we can move the DIY party downstairs (or maybe to the stairs...hmmmm)!!
