Today, I am sharing our freshly painted white garage/multi use space..woohoo!!!!
Lets take it wayyyy back to the ‘before’ of how the garage looked for the last 2 years:
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!
Another angle before 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.
Another bunk shot, before the rail/ladder/cabinet door:
Angle looking back towards laundry area before:
Door color- BM- Wrought Iron
One more bunk shot before:
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!
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:
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!
