Inspired by Charm Paint Colors

I’ve been meaning to put together this post for awhile. Since I’ve been painting lately, I figured now was an opportune time.

People often ask about the paint colors I’ve used in my house. I thought it might be helpful to have a central location where folks can reference paint colors. This information will appear as a post today, but I will update it as I add and/or change colors. I will also create a button on the side bar so that you are able to easily reference this post whenever you may need it.

Because questions about items in the rooms may also arise, I will link a few related posts below the room colors. If you notice something is missing or you’re curious about something I don’t have linked up, just leave a comment below and I will link it if I can. Sound good?

So, without further ado, grab your party hats and paint brushes and let’s get this painting party started.

All of the trim throughout the house is Bright White (right out of the can) by Sherwin Williams. It’s their ProClassic trim paint in semi-gloss. All of the walls are a satin / eggshell finish.

I hope this answers your painting questions. Again, if there are additional details you’d like, please leave your questions below.

Happy Painting!

Progress in the Bedroom

Hey there, friends! I hope you had a truly wonderful weekend. It’s hard to believe it was the last weekend in July. Where is the summer going? It was a pretty good weekend here. On Saturday my friends and I visited Tasting In the Wilds, a local wine and beer festival. We try to get […]

The Closet is Now a Closet

Last weekend I didn’t make much progress in my bedroom since I was out of town. Then, I spent most of this week playing catch up and working on a few other projects. This weekend I do plan on getting back to work in my bedroom and hopefully making some headway in the actual bedroom […]

A New Gallery Wall

I’m sure you’re thinking it’s about time. I have delayed hanging anything on my walls in my living room / office for quite some time. Well, after inspiration struck last week, I’m breaking out the hammer and nails. As I alluded on Tuesday, this huge blank wall above my sectional has finally been filled. And […]

A Year of Pie: Peach & Blueberry Slab Pie

All of this painting has made me hungry. With one part of my bedroom painted and a little dresser makeover under my belt, I thought it was time to add another recipe to IBC’s A Year of Pie series. Since there are lots of fresh peaches in the grocery store right now, I figured I’d […]

Weekend Wanderlust: No. 37

It’s been months since I did a Weekend Wanderlust post. Months. Since I had a pretty magical weekend, I thought it was time to revisit Weekend Wanderlust and hopefully bring it back as a bi-weekly / weekly series here on IBC. Sound good? Travel. First up, my friends and I hopped in a car last […]

Real Men Paint Dressers Pink

You know, like the phrase, “Real Men Wear Pink.” Sorry, I’m trying to be “punny”. Haha. Okay. Enough, enough. Anyway, remember last week when I began redoing my whole upstairs, and I had this small antique dresser that I really wasn’t digging anymore. This one. Yeah, the chippy paint was a little too chippy, the […]

Drinks and Links: Rummy Cherries

Happy Friday! I’m currently on my way to Vermont to attend a little house warming party for a friend who recently bought a home up there. My friends and I packed into a car yesterday to make the 9+ hour trip. (I’m actually writing this post on Wednesday, so let’s hope the trip went well.) […]

This Little Light of Mine

Oh snap. I’m officially obsessed with this light. Obsessed. So as you may have guessed, my bedroom has a new light. (I probably should stop calling it my bedroom since it is actually my closet. Potayto Potahto.) Anyway, isn’t this light the coolest? I assume you’ve seen this particular fixture floating around the Internet for […]
