WHW: Reno Begins


Hey y'all and welcome to another WHW! Now don't let that title fool you - we are in no shape or form doing a reno like before but a reno nonetheless. We closed yesterday and now we are in paint mode just so we can get the furniture in and then we will tackle the kitchen. I mentioned on Monday that I was probably going to bring back Weekend Reno Updates like I did with our previous house so be on the look out for those on Mondays to keep up with the process. Today I'm sharing our paint colors and some other design decisions we've hammered down in the last week. Stay tuned because I'm sharing the full before photo tour next week!

Be sure to join in below and link up with us to let us know What's Hap-'pinning' in your neck of the woods!


We also picked out a basic taupe color for the media/playroom that adjoins Andi's room because its sage green now and we didn't want green on green. Its similar to the one below. ALL of the ceilings have to be painted white because they are a pale yellow so we also had to get GALLONS of white ceiling paint. Also picked up some white paint for the master closet doors, linen closet doors and hallway to dining room.

The below tile will be for the master bedroom fireplace. It has a red brick look now and this dark grey tile will look great with the grey and white scheme we are going for.

  1. Where did you get that table?? That's the look of a table I've been looking for, but everything always seems to be off-white which I DON'T want. I'm sorry you have to paint the ceilings--we had that off-white color in several of our rooms too and it's blah. Not something you totally notice until you go to paint and you're like "dammit!" haha. I love the colors you've chosen for the rooms! Great neutral colors. Can't wait to see the progress!!

  3. Loving your color palette, especially for the fireplace. Sounds similar to what we did. We had to take popcorn ceilings off our ceiling so yeah, they were painted a bright white. Super fun, sike!

  8. It looks like you have such a great space to work with! I love all the paint colors you've picked out, and the tile for the fireplace sounds like it will go perfect with your grey/white room.

  9. How exciting! Good call on purchasing two extra chairs for the table. I'm not a big fan of the bench dining style. Can't wait to see it when it's all done!
