Paint, Paint, and more paint.

Paint, Paint, and more paint.
 First off Ellie decided she’d show you just how I was feeling on being done with the painting…..
{Yay!!!!!!!! we’re done painting, we’re done painting! My wrist can recover- yay! –I can wear normal clothes again– Yay!– we’re done painting!!}
Our Entryway {Sherwin Williams Relaxed Khaki}
My choice :) Dave thinks it looks to grey {I think he’s crazy}
 The Study {SW whole wheat}
Ya Dave won the battle– Our house mainly has warm toned colors
Living Room {SW whole wheat}
Kitchen {SW whole wheat & Columbia Millet}
and try to ignore the light fixtures :) the shade is precariously just sitting on the light and we don’t have the pendant shades on yet and the kitchen light is hung to low :) fun times but it’s getting there
 Master {SW whole wheat & Columbia Millet}
Do you really want to know what happened?! and why our bedroom and kitchen living room is now multi-colored, and why I had to paint these walls 3 times already *sigh………. okay I’ll tell you.. embarresment and all :)
So I picked whole wheat because well Dave pretty much won with wanting the warm colors in our house. {I was leaning more towards white’s and greys :) } but our niece’s house is painted with a really dark warm brown and I love the way their house feels, so welcome and cozy… so I figured heck let’s go darker….. Ya it didn’t go so well….. the walls ended up turning orange in the middle of the day- bright brilliant pukey colored orange.
:( I cried and fretted and stressed and quite literally had an emotional breakdown….. I mean give me a little here I was on day 4 of painting non stop 10 hour days….. and now I literally hated the color.
So Dave, being the amazing husband that he is and knowing me pretty well, showed up home that night with 5 gallons of pretty much our fall back color– the color we’ve had in all our other homes– Millet.
So the next day I turned around and started painting all over again :) It was fun fun fun times.
Basement Stairs {Columbia Millet & SW sea salt}
{I aint’ gonna lie, I’ve been going through design bipolar disease– Desbilar :) yep just made up that name
I love the cool grey colors you see now a lot, and I love the light walls and creams and even whites, but I also love and want a warm comfy inviting home (and not to mention a happy hubby who likes those warm colors) so I literally haven’t know what I’ve wanted I’ve been going back and forth– ya so frusterating! and I feel like our house is showing the bi- polarness}
 Basement {SW Sea Salt}
 Guest room, a.k.a Kurts room :)
 {and no I’m not announcing anything here :)…. I just would like another baby and I’d like it to be a boy and I’d like to name him Kurt :) I’m not being picky or weird or anything :)
 Payt’s room {SW whole wheat & SW urbane bronze}
Yep all Payton wanted in his room was black walls {ya Black!} being a sane mom I said “ummm ya no” but he gave me his sad pouty eyes and I caved and gave him one black wall :)  not to mention a sweet light fixture– He’s pretty excited about it his room!
Girls Bedroom {SW intimate white & SW Priscilla pink in the closet}
Bryn of course wanted pink and pink and more pink ……. I thought I was going more with a creamy white with just a hint of pink… ya didn’t turn out so much that way but I still love the color and Brynley really likes her pink closet :)
Attic Room {SW Sea Salt  & Wool Skein}
My space….. I got to pick the colors….. and I love em…… nuff said :)
Attic Studio/ Bedroom {SW Marshmallow}
We Started the laminate floor upstairs it’s Golden Select Walnut ……. I’m loving it……. course it’s absolutly filthy right now and in this photo {what can I say I’ve been super super busy}
Busy with what you say?!
Well I’ve had many much paint cans and crap to clean out…..
And we’ve been laying this beautiful Product down on our floors {Red Oak #2}
I Love LOVE love hardwood floors especially this one…… I love all the different characteristics of the boards and the different color variations it comes in…. *sigh I’m one happy girl getting to put this floor down
{I’ll try to go over tomorrow and take some pictures of it down on the floor– it’s yummy :) }
 Zeeta I must say is wondering when the stink we might be done with this project so she can feel a bit more settled :) I told her never…. :)
{ but secretly I’m hoping in the next month}
PS. I really really really want to thank Everyone who helped me with the painting…. seriously every roll counted for me….. especially when I thought I couldn’t do anymore! {Shelly, Annette, Alysha, Mandi, Johan, Anne, Keri} I love you guys! Thanks so so so much!
{and Ty, Russ and Clark– who from hear out shall be know as the electrical Masters!….. Dave says “I love you guys” :) okay he more likely says…. Thanks so much man! no but really Thanks! }

    Everything looks great! And still, just love your moldings. My favorite has to be the black wall though. And the fixture. Decided to put one like that in our boys’ room too;).

    Totally with you on the beige. I love the greys and blues too. But somehow feel cozier in a beige room. So I’m keeping the main living areas neutral aka…shades of beige and trying to take some color risks in the office, powder room etc. You guys are doing great on the house.
