Cincinnati/Newport, Part 2

We worked!

First we transformed this icky yellow-greenish (emphasis on ish!) room. (It was more greenish than this photo, I think, but the colors didn't photograph right in the lighting we had.)

It became a lovely pale gray:

Jess is tall. Look how tall those windows are!

Then we covered an orange room with the same gray:

What to do about that entry way...

Maybe a dark blue? Whaddya think, Alex?

Nope. Thumbs down. Much too dark!

It got primed white first:

Then a coat of the same gray went on top of that wall.

To see the rest of what was decided upon for the entry, check out Jess's blog post here. Quite a beautiful transformation, in my opinion!

What a gorgeous front door! What a ton of work!

Yeah, isn't that a cool door, though! And definitely a ton of work... but always more fun to do in somebody else's house. ;)

This is a fun post. I love it. So happy you documented the transformation!

Looking forward to seeing more of your 'after' pics, Jess, when you get everything the way you want it!
