Useless Paint News.

Before: Living room when the realtor walked us through the house.

Before: This room has been through So many changes!

This is how it looked back when it was our dining room- in the first month or so after we moved in.

Before: How it looked last week.

This room isn`t our dining room anymore- it`s more of a playroom slash 2nd lounging area now.

Yes! I know it`s confusing but I just showed you 3 pictures all of the same room. 🙂

Why am I showing these pics?


My husband left for a couple days to take his school kids to Washington DC. With other adults, of course.

Another “before” shot- called junky playroom.

Here it`s more cleaned up- but I just couldn`t LOVe the walls and the putty/ drywall color they were.

Anyways- so hus is gone, and I`m thinking what can I do to make the time go by FAST!?

Hmm, tackle a huge project!

Yup, you guessed it- I decided to paint this room.

I decided on a blue color- loving the inspiration I am getting from “this room” (above).

I chose a color called “Polaris”.

Did you know Sherwin Williams makes Walmart`s Color Place paint? I picked the most expensive finish- forget what it`s called. Anyways.

I was very satisfied with the price ($15 a gallon), and the durability of it (dirt wipes right off) and the way it coated (coated in one and a half coats).

The only thing you have to watch out for is that all their colors go on about 2 shades DARKER than they look on the swatch.

I was mad about that… but for $15 not too mad…

Well, it was a MAD MAD MADHOUSE here for the first 2 days- but it`s done now.

After pictures later. 🙂

Later, Jenny
