Family Room Before {Paint makes a BIG difference}

When you see the pictures of my Family Room Before the awesome new paint…

You will see that the gold color on the walls stayed way too long.

As we say in the South, it wore out it’s welcome!

I mean seriously too long, like I painted it 5 years ago, yikes!

So, here is the room before painting, in all her gold glory.

I couldn’t even wait to finish to take a picture!

Family Room During Paint

It made this room so much brighter!

The paint I used is a Sherwin Williams color called Mindful Gray.

I had it mixed at Lowe’s in Olympic One paint.

 Before the window treatments almost blended with the wall…now they look new!

I love this paint so much I have painted it upstairs in my son and daughters room.

I hope this inspires you to try a new color!

Paint really can make a HUGE difference.

Happy Monday,
