Our home, although beautiful (and extremely clean--thank you, previous owners!) from the moment we first moved in, had one thing that needed to be taken care of ASAP. And that was the color of the walls!
Egg yolk YELLOW, as we not-so-affectionally referred to it.
Of course in true Rachel fashion, I took FOREVER to actually make a decision and make something happen.
Should we have someone come paint it?
If so who should we hire??
Should we just paint it ourselves?
What color should we use??
Too many questions I didn't have time to think about answers to. When we moved in we had a 3 year old, a 21 month old and a 2.5 week old.... sooo... I didn't exactly prioritize the paint color of our walls. Although to be honest, I should have because it was such an eye sore that it stopped us from actually wanting to have anyone over! We kept saying "once we get rid of this hideous yellow wall color, we'll start to have people over.
And FINALLY in September we made the decision of what company to use and what paint color we wanted! We scheduled them to come as soon as they had an opening, which ended up being in early October.
You'll see by the pictures that I'm not exaggerating the wall color and how bad it was. It's like night and day with the color we chose! It made everything look SO much better!
Well.. see for yourself:
In progress painting!
Already looking so much better!
I'm so happy with the paint color we chose!
This office was a dark green color and it looks SO much better and brighter with the gray we chose.
We got blinds on all the windows shortly after this as well.
