Laundry Room Painting

ONE GALLON LATER…

Laundry Room Progress / 7th House on the Left

The laundry room has been painted! We’re having an extremely foggy morning here in Richmond, so the photos are all full of shadows and whatnot, so bear with me! Or Behr with me… haha… Okay, no. As I mentioned last week in this post, we’ve been feeling the need to change up the blue walls in the laundry room in order to get to where we want to be style-wise. It’s a pretty good-sized room (for a laundry room) and…

THE PERFECT SHADE OF GRAY

Behr Anonymous / 7th House on the Left

At the end of Wednesday’s post, I talked about how I’ve been hankering to paint the laundry room. I’ve been struggling with what to do with this room and I finally came to the conclusion that the roadblock is the paint color.

SEAL VS. DARK GRANITE

Gray Paint Swatches  |  7th House on the Left

At that point, we were in love with the colors, and thought we’d be in love with them forever. Well, apparently “forever” for paint is about a year. We’re changing it up this weekend in Greg’s office. Before I get to all of that, let me back up a second. Here’s what Greg’s office is looking like these days……

HANDY TOUCH UP PAINT STORAGE

Handy Touch Up Paint Storage / 7thhouseontheleft.com

While going through renovations (or just everyday life) walls are bound to get nicked, scratched and scuffed. For this reason, we’ve been finding ourselves frequently lugging cans of paint in and out of the attached storage shed (which is insulated, and therefore safe for paint storage). While I was at the grocery store the other day, I spotted these cute 4 oz Ball Jelly Jars. Being on an organization kick lately, I figured I’d find something to do with them…
