Our office is my favorite room in our whole house.
That is why I was so excited that it was up next on our
We're slowly making this home more us.
The Office before:
The office walls and ceiling were painted the same tan color as the rest of the house. Not a bad color, but like I've mentioned before, I want to make this home more light and airy feeling.
I already had the paint I wanted to use. You may remember I first painted my kitchen in it.
It is called, Maine Shore by Valspar. Found at Lowe's.
It however was just not right for our kitchen. The reason being is that it is more of a beachy color, and our kitchen has more of a rustic farmhouse feel to it. You can read more about that post HERE.
Ok, now back to the office. I first painted the ceiling in the same white/cream color as all the trim in our home.
And then I painted the walls.
Again, the color is called Maine Shore by Vaspar.
It's such a great, light, green-blue color. It works so well with the trim and the wood floors.
The reason why this is my favorite room in the house is because of all of the old windows.
So after I was finished painting, up next was to clean the windows.
It was a dirty and long over due job.
A few of the windows were jammed shut. It took a bit of muscle and a putty knife to wedge them back open. I then sanded them good so now they open and shut easily.
Aren't these windows so clean and pretty?
I absolutely Love them, and the hardware as well.
Now it's the fun part of decorating the room. So stay tuned.
More to come!
