Mud Room Before/After


 I had always wanted to paint a room Navy Blue.
So when we moved in our home and started painting rooms the mud room went navy.
I was so excited and loved it. 
Hubby on the other hand hated it. 
H.A.T.E.D I.T

 After 5 years I must admit I was pretty over it too.
I told B this time he could pick the color so I wouldn't have to hear it if it was awful. Ha!
We both agreed we wanted something light.

Here was the before...
(I had already removed pictures and started taping.)




2nd coat completed



Done!
4 coats later. 
It looks great though.


The next day we (I had a helper) started putting up the signs and key holder.





Seriously, how cute is it  that he wanted to be mommy's helper. 
He went and got his hammer to help me.
LOVE HIM.

::drumroll please::
The After


We love vintage signs. Our favorite is the "Trying to reason with Hurricane Season"
My dad made that for us as a surprise after hurricane Ivan destroyed the place our wedding was being held on the beach. 28 day's before we were going to walk down the isle. That's a whole other post but, we smile every time we see that now. The board on the left came out of his Memaw and Papa barn and it is older than Brian is. 

The other wall is getting an "extra" makeover I will revel once we are done.
I love it so so so much better. 
I hate to admit that the blue was a mistake in that tiny room with no light but, it was. 
Yayy! for easy changes that make a big difference..
