With no big plans for the Easter long weekend, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to plan a paint-a-thon. The weekend before I picked up the paint and did all the prep work (sanding down rough spots, filling holes and moving furniture) so that everything would be ready for Friday morning. Here are the before and after pics (sorry, no before pic of the kitchen) - I think it turned out really, really well. I was also inspired by an e-design course created by Lia Fagan at Mod Nest to freshen up my accessories, furniture placement, etc. and plan to do that once I put the rooms back together. A simple thing like moving a sidetable or swapping out a photograph really does freshen up your design - and isn't Spring the perfect time for renewal?
