Hello Lovelies! How is your week going so far? I am very excited that it is almost the weekend!
Yesterday afternoon demo started on the flooring in the new(old) house and I snapped some pictures before they started. As soon as the new flooring is installed, the kids and I can start moving.
I. Hate. Moving. (As I'm sure most do).
But this time I plan to move differently. I am going to decrapify in the process.
Is that a word? It is now.
I am not allowing anything into the house that isn't useful or needed. Because, honestly, I have boxes still unpacked from like three moves ago. Do I really need whatever is in those boxes? I think not.
Anywhoo, back to the entryway. Unlike the huge house, I did not use a ton of color in the new(old) house. I'm sure subliminally I chose a ton of white because it is clean. Clean house. Clean slate.
My thinking in doing so was that I could use it as a backdrop and add color through textiles and furniture and accessories. That and the fact that we spent 15 days straight painting and I never want to pick up another paint brush again. It's much easier to change a pillow than a wall, right?
I painted the house Behr's Parchment Paper. Behr from The Home Depot is the best paint out there (well other than Farrow & Ball but that rings in at about $75 a gallon) by far and I won't paint with anything else. And I've tried them all. I did flat enamel on the walls and high gloss on the trim.
Welcome to #ProjectLemonade. Come on in y'all.
