One of the first things I said when our real estate agent swung open the door to our now home was, “This wall color will have to be the first thing to go.” Well, if anyone is counting, it’s been nearly 2.5 years and, thanks to Ace Hardware, the living room wall color is finally gone.
Working with Ace Hardware on this project helped me out of my comfort zone with an unlikely color that I wouldn’t have picked on my own and we are so extremely happy with the outcome.
To give you the kick you need to brighten and freshen up your living spaces for Spring, Ace Hardware is hosting a 31 Days of Color Sweepstakes. You can enter to win a $10,000 paint makeover and daily gift cards at thepaintstudio.com. While you are on the site, you can also get some color inspiration for a space.
Here are a few before pictures of the previous wall color.
I even got in on the fun.
aaaaaand after!! The wall color is Valspar Silver Eucalyptus.
We also took the ceiling to white except for the very top of the trey ceiling because I was afraid the color would be too dark but it is just amazing. New couch pillows, curtains and a rug are on the way. I’m also so excited to start hanging photos on the wall.
With the open concept of the house, we now have to paint the foyer, hallway, dining room and kitchen sooner than later. We will follow the Silver Eucalyptus color card palette. To tie in all of the spaces the foyer, the hallway and the fireplace will be the same color, this is why the fireplace hasn’t been painted yet. Look for those changes in the next month or so.
The paint was very affordable and covered so well considering what was underneath. This entire space only took 3 gallons. Much better, don’t you agree?
No purchase or payment necessary to enter or win. Open to legal US residents residing in the contiguous United States and the District of Columbia who are at least twenty-one (21) years of age and who are homeowners. Sweepstakes will run from 3/1/16-3/31/16. Full rules located here: http://www.thepaintstudio.com/31daysofcolor/pdf/2016AceHardware31DaysofColorSweepstakesRules.pdf
Another day, another color to inspire your home projects. Everyday in March, Ace is unveiling a featured color and giving you a chance to win a $10,000 room makeover! To learn more visit thepaintstudio.com.

Beautiful color choice! Is it just me or do the accent pillows on the couch actually stand out more against the lighter wall color? If you ask me, I think the pillows should stay.

Love this color! Matter fact, this is really close to the color I was leaning towards for the kitchen (even though I have already painted the kitchen gray.) LOL!
