Q: Easiest & Affordable way to change the look of your home?
Here are a few amazing room transformations and furniture makeovers with paint. FYI, these are not images of my home, as it will be a work in progress for the next couple years.
Sherwin Williams has a sale about 2 or 3 times a year with their paint being 40% off, and about 3 weeks before we were to move into our new home, I went ahead and bought about 27 cans during their awesome sale! Something people don’t know, is that you can buy their “paint in the can” without having color added. Then, at a later date when you have decided on your colors…. bring the paint back & they will add color (free of course, since its already been paid for at an earlier date.) Also, if you estimated more paint than necessary, you can return it (with receipt), unless of course you have added the color to it. (I believe there is a 60 day return policy, so just figure it out sooner than later.)
Another paint estimated tidbit: Apparently, when you have popcorn removed from ceilings, its likely to need double the amount of ceiling paint you actually think is necessary, because the ceiling will just drink it up.
About a week ago, I mentioned reader, that there would be pictures of my updated laundry room…but guess what? I’m not finished. Between working full time, and driving about 2 and a half hours a day for this job…I am usually exhausted when I finally get home at 6:30 in the evening. My husband and I have been trying to push through our “paint reno” after work everyday, but the process has been slow going.
Today I just have some progress pictures…but next week I promise, I will have images of our
finished “completed for now” master closet & laundry room.
Goal for this week: Finish painting ALL closets & complete laundry room
Ongoing Project: Painting Living Area, Question Room, Kitchen, & all bedrooms
