Goodbye Garage- Paint it White

And the trim post from last week to refresh your memory:

And now for some prettyyyyy!!

I decided to go with one of my absolute favorite white paints by Benjamin Moore- White Dove for pretty much every surface except the ceilings are BM- Decorators White. We had these simple desks made and added the gorgeous pendant lighting over each. I love the punch that they add to the space!

After paint:

I wanted the rail and ladder to contrast against the white so I went with a minimax stain in weathered oak and I love how it turned out. The sconces are a simple style in a muted brass.

I LOVE how it turned out and how fresh and clean it feels now! We said before we started this project that we probably will wonder how we lived without it and that is totally how we feel. It’s just so nice to have 500 extra useable square feet!

It may take a while to furnish the space because we need to start focusing our spending on baby girl’s nursery, but I am just so pleased with how it looks now freshly painted and clean!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Goodbye Garage- Trim it out

Hey guys!

Next up on the garage renovation…trim!!! I loveeeee rooms with added trim detail. It just gives that extra punch that takes a wall from basic to interesting.

There are many different trim styles you can incorporate in a room, but for our space I knew I wanted to do a classic board and batten. Board and batten can be done several ways…half way up a wall, horizontal, square & vertical. Here are a few inspiration photos:

Square-

Horizontal-

Vertical-

I decided that vertical was the winner for the space. Now for some photos of the trim installed!!

I just love the detail that it adds to the space. We could’ve just left the drywall and painted it, but I knew that adding the board and batten would really help finish it out and take away any remnant of it feeling like an old garage. Now all it needs is fresh paint!!! My motto for everything…paint it white! Ha.

Can’t wait to share photos of the paint and lighting installed. I’ll be sharing soon!
