A Quick Review of Paint Colors

Standard

Now I can say it:

Every single room in our ranch home has been painted. Walls, ceilings, trim, floor, windows, doors,  you name it.  If it COULD be painted it HAS BEEN painted. Inside and out.

We have used the Sherwin Williams Suburban Modern Collection as our palette. That kept it pretty simple and avoided hauling multiple paint chips home to agonize over. And besides: it is just paint.

Here is the new paint scheme on the original (we think) 1951 garage door using white, Caribbean Coral and Harvest Gold:

Caribbean Coral in the Master bedroom:

Harvest Gold in the living room, entry and hallway. All of the doors and trim are white:

Chelsea Gray in the 3/4 bath:

Pinky Beige in the office:

Aqua in the guest room and kitchen. This is not a true Sherwin Williams color. It is a cross between Holiday Turquoise and Burma Jade:

The entire basement has been painted Chelsea Gray and Classic French Gray:

The front and back door are also Caribbean Coral.  Someday I want a true mid-century door.

The basement floor has an Epoxy floor paint the equivalent of  Plymouth Green:

All of the ceilings (in rooms where the wall color and ceiling are not the same) are Porcelain:

It feel so good to have everything freshly painted and CLEAN.  The prep work was unreal. We had to remove stickers,  scotch tape, sloppy caulk  and bad patch jobs before we could even prime anything.

Now on to the next project: decorating the newly remodeled basement!

Enjoy the springtime everyone!
