A Home Refreshed



Its amazing to me how much power a can of paint has!

Our home has been this same interior shade of oatmeal for the past 10 years. I've gotten so used to it that it seems to me to be the only decent color a home should have. I'm a huge fan of the show Fixer Upper and I have yet to seem some oatmeal....at least not on the walls! 

{don't mind the fact that this pic has a bit of Christmas in it!}


I love a neutral color palate with a few hits of color in the decor but not dark saturated colors. It struck me how Joanna Gaines could use muted color on the walls yet keep everything still looking neutral and relaxed. She uses this "color" as a neutral and yet it still works with all my stuff!


Enter into my life Sea Salt. I am so surprised at how much fresher and more up to date paint can make a house feel. The gray color is called 'Pewter Cast'  both from Sherwin Williams.



Here's a bit of picture overload!





The curtain panels were found at HomeGoods and I saw them at Marshalls too. I love the drama they add. They were pretty inexpensive and we hung them with pipe and fixtures from the hardware store.



The cow print is from Hobby Lobby. We named her Fern.






I'm telling you, paint is the easiest/cheapest way to totally change your look. I will admit that I was totally stressed out about it all. The major life saver was buying the sample jars and trying a few swatches out around the house. This method totally changed the originally direction we were going in and was well worth the extra expense {about $15.00}.

Thanks for stopping by!
