I love your curved doorways and the little alcoves.

I found paint that has primer built in - it's worth it! Behr makes it (Home Depot).

I'm glad my guest room is painted - I feel so much better about it!

OMG, this is more pictures of bird than the internet has EVER SEEN.

(Or were you trying to pass as K.?)
I need to know, what is the name and brand of that color. LOVE it.

Paula S - we call it Eyjafjallajokull Ash, but it's really the primer tinted to match Benjamin Moore's
Ashwood Moss.

Oh my goodness!!! love it. Comes just as I am reflecting on how much I don't like the color in my bathroom, which would be like painting one tiny bit of what you've accomplished here. Paint envy is striking up above the gwb. It is going to be SOOO worth it when you're done.

OMG I am with Poppy! You are EXPOSED!
And bless you little heart for going through all of that! We need to paint our exterior, woudl you like to do it in lieu of a painter???
Can't wait to be back and sit at that table with you again, eating, drinking and laughing with you all.
I lost my heart to your white trim.

Oh! The chair rail, the arched doorways, the alcoves, all the white trim! I am in love!

Thank you for sharing. Lovely.

I think it's stunning. What pretty light your dining room receives, and what a good color is that Eyjafjallajokull Ash. And all of those doors? Intriguing. I am trying to guess what each one leads to.

So impressed. I would only enjoy painting the alcoves...wait, perhaps I'd only enjoy painting one.

Beautiful, bb!

We painted our laundry a similar colour and I love it. Enjoy!

I compulsively paint my house, and this makes me want to paint! I love how you dont use tape either. It is so much more fun & real that way!
Eyjafjallajokull Ash - *snort*


I adore the colour.

And everytime I get a glimpse of your house my heart races a little - in that totally creepy stalkerish way you fear.

But all that work, and all that plastic and covering stuff and having things in the wrong place? Neck itching.

Long time reader, first time commenter. The Behr paint with the primer is BRILLIANT. Also, the 1 inch Purdy brush is what you need. No need to tape with that sucker.
