Rooms Remodeled

After living in our home for over a year, we have grown very tired of looking at that cheap, flat, off-white paint they spray everywhere.  So after our 1-year drywall touchup was complete we decided to start painting some rooms.  We started in the dining room.  The color scheme we chose was a bright white and pale green combination.  On the lower half of the room we added chair rail and picture frame molding.  Crown was installed around the top and we cased out the door openings for a more finished look.  We were able to obtain the exact same moldings RH uses right at our local Lowes.

Next we painted the morning room.  This is kind of a teal color.  The official name is "Duckling".  We are pretty happy with it.  One bit of advice for anybody who hasn't starting painting yet.  You will not get 400 square feet of coverage that a gallon of paint usually provides.  The thin coat of cheap, flat paint on the walls is very porous and the walls will soak the paint up like a sponge!

Stay tuned for more pics of our family room upgrades and details on our latest service request that they have completely ignored!
