Dirty Laundry

Black Rooster Cottage
is keeping me busy for a few days
but once we get through
 decorating and stocking
for the busiest time of year,
some Home changes are coming!


Paint, paint and some more paint!
 
Most walls in this house are an Antique Cream
and what's not, is WHITE.
 
I like white but when you add white tile,
white counters and white flooring,
it's a bit much.
 
I'm going thrifty here...
 
There's 10 gallons of paint sitting in the garage
and it's all mine!
 
This paint was for one of my husband's customers that decided
it was too dark after they started painting their house.
As you know, you can't return paint!
 
It's definitely darker than white.
 
Our color: Nomadic Taupe.
 
It's a cross between a gray and a sage green.
It's very soft and sweet.
 
Petunia's bathroom in Nomadic Taupe
 
The first dreary room to get a new do:
The Laundry!
 
I did a sample patch...
 
 
 
I think it'll look way better.
 
After the laundry:
*Family Room accent wall
*Master Bathroom
*Master Bedroom accent wall
*Backsplash in the kitchen (second coat)
and maybe the downstairs bathroom.
Yeah, that too.
 
Pictures as we go!
 
So, instead of shopping on Black Friday,
I'll be roll, rolling away!
 
I will be out on Saturday though,
to Support Small Businesses!!
 
Happy Thanksgiving!
 
xo, Amber

When your finished with yours, what about heading south and helping me? I will feed ya, show ya some true southern hospitality, etc, just say you'll come help?? I am talking ceilings (I had my ceilings painted a shade darker than the walls when we built...stupid!!!), trim, baseboards, doors, window grids, everything!!!
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Paint is a wonderful way to change things up without costing too much. I like the way the laundry looks. xo, Susie
