paint, paint, paint

It was clear from the beginning that we had to repaint the whole house.

I mean – the WHOLE house!

Not only walls, but also trim, baseboards, doors, windows, but also all cabinets in the kitchen, bathrooms, livingroom, office and also all the shelves in the closets.

After a trip to Benjamin Moore we came back with 6 samples and had the painter paint swatches on walls and drawers. All 6 of them were a miss!

So back we went the next day and got 6 more – and – we were happy to make a decision.

White, white, white – but which one????

We do not want to have too many different colors, so the cabinets will be either white like the walls or one of two warmer grey tones.

We are going with flat paint for the walls, except eggshell for the bathrooms. All the wood is going to be semi gloss. And we are very happy with that decision so far…
