MORE OF THE HOME REFRESH




Alrighty then....today we have the last few pictures of Maria's home makeover or as I like to say it "for crying out loud....let's update this place"

Can I stretch out a project or what.....I am a professional "blog post stretcher".....

Yeah....blah blah blah.....get to it girl.

Before


 The dining room just needed some flowers....


I wrote about updating this room in 2011



This is the music room right off the den...there is a baby grand behind this sitting area...


We lightened it up...by replacing the brown curtains and pillows.


I scored these cream ready made curtains at Bed Bath and Beyond and added new pillows.  Of course flowers will make any room look special....


A little cheetah can be a game changer.



When they get bored she can play the piano and he can grab a guitar....

Are they like shoes....can't really have too many?

Remember I said they had the exterior painted...here is the before.


After

The body is Benjamin Moore Classic Gray

Here are the shutters Mike made!  Makes it look like a little french cottage.  The color is Benjamin Moore Brewster Gray HC 162.

You probably don't remember but here is the same  combination on a show house.... I almost used these colors...


I didn't do anything in this space but I wanted to show you the backyard....Mike made the swing bed.....

Have you guys gotten into the world cup?  Sunday nights game was so exciting.....I think I am hooked and will be watching US vs Germany on Thursday.

I bet everyone is getting ready for vacation over the 4th.  I'll just be here....holding down the fort....in the heat....hangin.

I am dying over the outside paint. I have seen so many brick houses lately, and this one is so lovely. Great job on the interiors...and the stretching.

So much charm! Those pillows were a great find.

I just love your sense of humor. You always make me laugh! :) I'm loving the shutters and checked out Benjamin Moore paint, but on the paint swatch it looks way darker that the pic. Did you reduce it to 50% by chance? Thanks for the inspiration!

Omg i collect autographed guitars & have been looking for wall hangers that don't look cheesy ---those are perfect!! Where can I purchase those? They look like forged metal. Thanks for the wonderful post!!

Your friends have a lovely home. I love the exterior colors and all the changes you made to freshen and brighten up the interiors.

I do so agree with you. Your roses look perfect in your aqua jars and look stunning with your white sofa and bright pillows. Absolutely lovely.

I think it is amazing how much you can make a room feel different with just pillows and flowers. Beautiful!! I haven't been watching the World Cup but overheard a lot of cheering from the other room on Sunday!

It looks gorgeous, Sherry. Love the extra touches you added and there is nothing quite like fresh flowers in a room. The shutters look amazing and adore the color!! Happy weekend!

Are the paint colors the same on the new house as it is on the show house? if different, can you please provide the other set of colors too.
