What a difference paint makes!  It's been almost 2 years, and we finally started  to paint our house. We waited for the year nail pops and for seam repair work. We're painting one room at a time.  But here are a few pictures of our rooms; the office and the dining room.  We also changed out the light fixture, added molding and chair rail--bye-bye builder grade!  It's hard to see in the picture, but our office is Sherwin Williams, Repose Grey and our dining room is Comfort Grey.  The dining room in person is more of a green-blue grey and the office is a traditional grey.  One of these days I will break out my professional camera opposed to using my iPhone.

Stay tuned for more fun pictures to come as we continue to paint. Happy building and decorating everyone!


  1. I have a question. We are coming up on our closing and we just received our HUD 1. How can we determine our out of pocket expense?

    1. Line 303 on your HUD (Cash From Borrower) should detail the amount you are expected to bring to closing. All of the other items should detail what is going in to that number. Good luck with your final walkthrough!

  2. Our LO is unavailable and we just received it.

  3. we have a similar color palette very very nice! a little paint goes a long way.

  4. Beautiful dining room fixture! You should post a "lighted" shot!

  5. Love your paint choices! Your house looks amazing! I'm obsessed with your office... it looks like a model home! I need you to help me pick out wall art... I'm so bad at that and your pieces look perfect with your decor.

  6. house looks like a model home? No, that would be yours. I would love to help you pick out wall me!
