My New Wall Color! My first Before and After!



Paint color is Driftwood Gray by Martha S. I LOVE IT!! It makes the room feel so open and airy feeling.

Also took our black book shelf and painted it White. (Which I have been wanting to do for a long time)

Remember those suitcases, I have been talking about. :) Here they are!! Those were a Birthday present from a local consignment store. Which I think totally pop in the room, as well as my rug I scored on Overstock for $200.

 I still have lots to do like hang pictures, and buy some chairs for the space. But I wanted so bad to give you guys an update on the house and color palette. So, tell me what are your thoughts??


  1. Your new wall color looks beautiful! We also painted a similar color in our master bedroom and it feels fresh and bright. Love your gorgeous rug, what a great deal! And not forgetting those fabulous vintage suitcases, they are so fabulous. I am seeing great things so far, I can't wait to see the rest of the room when it's completed!


  2. Its beautiful, Megan!!! Love love love that paint color! And painting the bookcase white made such a huge difference, wow! I have had my eye on one of those rugs do you like yours? Is it soft or scratchy? Vintage suitcases are perfect, they add that lived in/collected feel. Cracking up at the car seat in the before pic, so cute!

  3. Very cool new color the whole rooms has come together - and the suitcases are awesome :)
    Have a great weekend

  4. I'm at Missy's house but I wanted to see what you posted. I think your bookshelf is beautiful. Love it white to match all the other trim.
