I get emails all the time on my paint color in the main areas of my house, and after this post from yesterday i got a few more. I actually repainted a few months back and forgot to post any before & after pics.
Honestly, the change was so subtle no one really even notices! Except me of course :)
Here are a few pics from the past with the old color…Whoah! These are some old pics! Almost nothing is the same as it is now!!
I really liked the color, it was a greenish gray and very neutral. It was one that kinda changed with the day. Sometimes though the green was a little too much and it clashed with some other colors that i tried to bring in. Sometimes i thought it was a little too “minty” – like toothpaste :)
Here is one a little more recently…
So a couple months back i decided to paint. I still wanted to keep the light and bright, but get rid of the green tone. I painted over all the green with Sherwin Williams Repose Gray tinted @ 125% in a satin finish. I really like the color, its clean and fresh and is dark enough that it contrasts with all the white shutters and molding. Plus its a warm gray and looks great with our dark hardwood floors.
This pic is a pretty accurate look @ the new color…
What do you think, can you even tell the difference?!!
