And The Winner Is….

After much debate, we decided to paint the black portion of the wall to match the rest of the wall. It took a few days for me to get used to it but it has grown on me. I am still not 100% crazy about the overall color of the walls but I do like the fact that it all matches.

I have since moved on to painting the hallway trim as well as the half bath and laundry room door trim. Its amazing to me how much a little color over wood really transforms the look of a house. I feel like our home is gaining back 20 years with just some paint. Love it!

Baby on Board!

Ashley and I are pleased to announce that we are expecting a new DIY’er to be added to our family this summer!  We are super excited about the 6th member of our family and cannot wait to share all new memories with everyone.  Of course, with a new baby and a new house, that can only mean more projects! Yep, we will soon be starting on a new nursery in what is currently our storage room. It’s really not a storage room but a cute girls room that we have just put everything into since we moved in. So in the mean time, we are going through box after box and donating what we know we cannot use again.

The new room is going to be pretty nice and I am excited to start on it. It will be the first room to have the wood trim painted white. If all goes well and I dont lose too much hair in in the process, I will start painting the rest of the house trim white as well.  We are still finalizing further details in regards to color and trim features so be sure to check back on what we decide. 🙂

Here is how the room looked when we toured before we purchased. Can’t wait to try and cover those stripes!
