Hi guys!


This is not going to be a long post because we went with the same paint color for almost everything!


For paint on the kitchen cabinets we did Benjamin Moore Dove White, and for all the walls, ceilings and baseboards (yes in the whole house) we did Pure White by Sherwin Williams. For sheen on walls: satin, on ceilings: flat, on baseboards: semi gloss. We used the Pro Mar line at Sherwin.


They also painted the windows and doors the same color.


For the brick fireplace we did Sherwin Pure White with their Loxon masonry paint.

The laundry cabinets were just their standard white color.
