A few updates on our home

Our home was yellow when we moved in 8.5 years ago.  It was in our kitchen, laundry, family room, 2 story entry way, and upstairs hallway...yellow has never been one of my favorite colors and this was too much for me, but it was a big job to change it, so we made do.

Finally our carpet needed to go (17 years old and just trashed especially after Mr. Reflux) and we started researching options after Elliott potty trained a year ago.  We decided to replace most of the carpet (we kept it in our playroom, stairs, and upstairs) with vinyl called Coretec.  So far we are very pleased.

That time seemed like the best time to paint the walls too (new color is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter).  I also went paint crazy with some of our other existing furniture and decor (our entertainment center got a makeover, as well as our bar stools!)

We are quite happy with how it turned out.  It feels much brighter and cleaner!

I'd like to paint and/or stain our railing, but I'm not so motivated to finish that right now.  My motivation seems to come in spurts.  Here is the album with our pics along the way.
