The Great Paint Reveal

It's done!

Our house reeks of oil-based paint smell, but it's totally worth it. The new paint color has made our old house feel brand new again!


Let's look at some of the before pictures. The previous owner had chosen a dark green/grey color for the walls, with an off-white/beige trim color.







Here it is with our new color, Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. We chose Polar Bear by Behr for the trim, in an oil-based semi gloss finish. 















I really love the color we chose, but what really made it was the bright white trim. It makes the grey wall color *pop* and helps our oil-rubbed bronze hardware to really stand out.    

What's been interesting about the new wall color is that it looks really different in various light. It goes from grey to taupe to beige and back to grey again, depending on which part of the house you are in and how much natural light there is. Luckily, I love all three color options. It was scary to choose a paint color for that much of the house, and I'm so glad that we made the right choice for us. 

We are really happy with it! What do you think?
