I have to say that things have been feeling a little hectic lately on Hazard Ave. Between putting the finishing touches on the family room and getting the butler's pantry painted, my weekends have been busy, busy, busy! Not to mention getting the house ready for the holidays, getting Christmas shopping done, and taking some very important time out to spend with friends and family to celebrate the season. Phew!
So while it isn't finished, I have made some progress in our butler's pantry. Like I mentioned previously, this is just a "mini" makeover. I'm just painting and adding a couple of little touches to make the room livable until we can afford to do it up right.
Check out this old, non-functioning doorbell. It will look much better once a coat of paint erases decades old dirt and grime.
That's the new wall color on the left, old wall color to the right.
Here's the other side of the room. Only the top portion of the wall above chair rail has been painted, but already the room is looking so much better. The paint color is Reserved White by Sherwin Williams. It is the same paint color we used on the adjacent family room ceiling. We had over a gallon left over from the family room project, so I figured this would be as a good a place as any to use it. Using the same paint color nicely ties the two rooms together. A happy accident :)
