house to home // wall paint

house project number one is underway!!
WALL PAINT!
my husband surprised me with an early anniversary present!
he for real knows the way to my heart!
I was wanting to go all white up and down stairs - not including bedrooms..
but my husband talked me into doing gray down and white up

ok so the wall color is most accurate to the above lighting- -
it's like an ivory yellow... not my thing. at all.

here is our entry way and while I realize this is
the worst possible lighting and the fact that no outdoor lighting
is flooding in like it normally does throughout the day..
this is the part that totally grosses me out. (insert ick emoji face)
 I just snapped these with my phone this morning to get some before pics
and I couldn't even tweek color balance to get it to show any other way..
so no it is not this yellow.. our baseboards are actually
true white which aren't even showing white in this pic..
but I'm a photographer so maybe this will
give all of you an idea just how important lighting and wall paint is to me
and give you a little idea of just how excited I am that
we are getting rid of this ivory paint!

upcoming projects.. (which will take who knows how long to get to) include:
fireplace
white kitchen cabinets
built in bookshelf section where tv is
hardwood continued throughout kitchen & nook area

it's going to look pretty stinkin cute when all is said and done!
