Going back to the rental house we had for 10 years… we knew we would need to update the house before listing it a few years ago, but we also didn’t want to spend a ton of money to doContinue reading “Cheap Ways to Update a Front Door”

Painting my Kitchen Island Green!

Over the past couple of years, I have taken baby steps with painting my kitchen island. Originally, the island was the wall color of the rest of our house (when the house was first built). This was a very light (almost white!) gray. Then, I decided to paint the island a medium gray color- SWContinue reading “Painting my Kitchen Island Green!”

How to Whitewash Wood

Hammertime is reader-supported. When you buy through links on our blog, we may earn commissions. Try saying that ten times fast- “whitewash wood”! I have always wondered how to whitewash wood, and I had an opportunity to test it out recently. A client who wanted a porch swing had debated between a solid paint andContinue reading “How to Whitewash Wood”

Sherwin Williams Debonair 9139 Paint

The last color we used in our house was in my son’s room. He picked out the color, and selected a medium blue/gray color. His room had the most marks on the wall (thanks to him constantly throwing balls around and thumb-tacking basketball posters all over the place!)… so not only does the color lookContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Debonair 9139 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay 6206 Paint

For our master bedroom, we used the next shade darker from Comfort Gray (and two shades darker than Sea Salt). This paint color is called Oyster Bay by Sherwin Williams. I definitely love it. I need to get things hung back on the wall to make it feel more like normal, but it’s a nice,Continue reading “Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay 6206 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray 6205 Paint

Another paint color we decided to use was Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray. It is a shade darker than the Sea Salt color we used in the guest bathroom. We used Comfort Gray in the guest bedroom/Stephen’s office downstairs, and also in the master bathroom. I love the color. Don’t let the name fool you- IContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray 6205 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Repose Gray 7015 Paint

The one good thing about the original paint we had in our house was that it was a very (very) light gray, so it kept our house feeling bright and light. I loved the feel of it, and wanted to keep that light look. However, I did want a little more of a contrast betweenContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Repose Gray 7015 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt 6204 Paint

Another color we used when we got our house painted was SW Sea Salt. When I was doing online research of good paint colors, Sea Salt kept popping up as one that is highly recommended. It’s a light green with some gray in it. I’m usually a blue kind of gal, but lately I haveContinue reading “Sherwin Williams Sea Salt 6204 Paint”

Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray 7017 Paint

We got the inside of our house painted about a month ago. The builders used “builder grade” basic paint originally, and we always knew we would update it eventually. Pretty much anytime we came in contact with the cheaper paint, it would make a mark… so you can probably imagine how it looked after 3Continue reading “Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray 7017 Paint”
