We decided to redo the floors at the last minute, remember? It looks so much better.

The original flooring is cabin-grade red oak, which may not be the prettiest hardwood, but I feel a sense of loyalty to it. So, the kitchen and dining room will be set to match as best we can.

Finished the door and trim! What a productive Labor Day. Walls are Sherwin-Williams’ Origami White and trim is Pure White.

The boys and I went back and forth, back and forth on their room color. We always figured it would be a shade of beige, but we couldn’t make a decision about which shade of beige. Sandy beige? Gray beige?

Then, a couple of days ago I came across Diverse Beige in my Sherwin-Williams fan deck, and it looked pretty perfect. It’s like a light cocoa color. These pictures don’t do it justice. In person, you’d want to lick it.

You know, I always thought we’d go more 1950’s retro with our color scheme: maybe some turquoise, chartreuse, or pink. Now, as things unfold, it seems we’re going for more of a Pacific Northwest color scheme. I like it.

We primed one of the doors, since I wasn’t a fan of the lacquered maroon, but can anyone explain why this small room has two exterior doors to begin with? Anyone?

Then we moved on to painting the walls, in Origami White from Sherwin-Williams. It’s warmer than the Pure White we used in the kitchen and living room.

Second coat of paint done!

The color, Sherwin-Williams’ Retreat, has bluer tones when overcast outside and olive tones when sunny. It’s stunning!
