From Country to Farmhouse....what a difference a coat paint can make!
Good morning! It's been a long time since I have sat down to write about my favorite thing, farmhouse decor. I love to create but I don't always find the time to blog about it. I'm constantly adding new decor to my home or rearranging but today I wanted to tell you about my most recent big project. First I want to give you a little before and after teaser...who doesn't love anticipation?!
This was my dining room:
I liked it but a change was needed. My boys are teenagers now so I had time for a large project! Packing up and taking everything down was a project in itself! Phew! It was time to channel my inner HGTV Goddess!
I decided the wall color was the first thing to change, lighten up a bit. Off to Sherwin Williams to find the perfect greige paint color! Did you know there are about 1000 shades of greige?! I had done my homework on Pinterest and choose between Agreeable Gray and Anew Gray. I decided to go with Agreeable Gray as it has slightly more of a taupe/brown feel and Anew has a gray/brown tone. Agreeable felt the most "farmhouse" to me.
While my husband was painting away I was planning in my head where to put things and what new accessories to buy! I hit Overstock for curtains and Target for a hanging produce scale clock that I had been eyeing for a while.
I love to collaborate with friends to get a project done! Christi at Three Little Birds painted the hutch. While Christi was painting the hutch I painted the dining table legs and washstand using Amy Howard Ballet White chalk paint.
Once the walls were painted, and the furniture was back the fun began! I filled the hutch with my white dish collection, some is Ironstone and other pieces I have collected throughout the years as thrift store finds! I love a good thrift shop!! I hung tobacco baskets, cotton decor, and a boxwood wreath.
And now for the full grand reveal! What do you think? I'm in love!
Do you have a room in need of a makeover? Tell me about it in the comments!
