Ding Dong Done

A few weeks back I posted about our front door transformation- Transformation-Doors here are a few photos of the front door completed. We have to do the outside yet but we are getting there and getting a lot done in just over two months of being here.

We have been getting our paint from Sherwin Williams, we had them mix the Benjamin Moore color- Wrought Iron. It is a slick color with our wall color, it stands out.

Carl’s parents and sister came over last Sunday for lunch so they could see the house, so we had to get a few things up on the walls.

The first photo are canvases that we had in the townhome, the second is the wine sign is from our friends as a wedding gift and third is the metal sign that Carl gave me for Christmas that is from the HGTV show Fixer Upper Magnolia Market.

I love seeing the house come together! We found curtains for the patio door that are cool, they need to get hemmed.



We decided we want to paint our front door and garage door to match better with our Repose Gray color; however, the main reason is because the doors are brownish color and kind of ugly and don’t go with our house color now. We love the Benjamin Moore-Wrought Iron color

Here are the photos of the transformation of the door.



Transformation-Spare Bedroom= Carl’s Guitar Room

Here is another transformation we did in the house along with the upstairs hallway. We have three upstairs bedrooms, our guest room, master bedroom and a spare room that now has become Carl’s guitar room!

So now Carl has his guitar room/my workout room. It was just white before but it looks great with the neutral color.

Transformation- Kitchen & Upstairs

The next house transformation we finished last weekend was the kitchen and upstairs. We did some prepping in the week and then we finished painting on the weekend. Here are some before and after shots. We painted the whole main floor, upstairs and the guitar room in the Repose Gray from Sherwin Williams.

We have gotten a lot done in the last two weekends. Carl is awesome for working so hard on painting.


Transformation-Living Room & Foyer

This was our story for last week. Wednesday night, we took all the face plates. Thursday night, Carl tapped all the base-boards and around the windows. Friday night, I painted around all the outlets and Carl did the edging for the ceiling. Saturday morning, we got up early moved the furniture and Carl edged the base-boards and then rolled the living room and I helped move furniture.

It was a busy Saturday, I made brownies in the morning as well, I had to run to the store to go grocery shopping and made cheeseburger soup all while doing all the painting.

Here are some before photos.

During photos.

After painting photos! What a difference paint makes. It gives a room a completely different look, feel, color and feels so clean. We are so happy with the color gray we picked. We picked Repose Gray from Sherwin Williams.

We are going to work on the upstairs hallway, kitchen and spare bedroom upstairs this weekend. It has taken great patience and team work to get this done! Carl is awesome at painting and I appreciate all his hard work!

Stayed Tuned for the next transformation.

Happy Painting!


Details Details…

Here are some of the details of the house.



Here are a few photos of Carl’s office and the transformation.

Carl’s Office-After it is painted

Carl took all the trim off and we will paint it white so all the trim in the house matches to the white.

This has been our first project and we are almost complete! 🙂
