Well hi there! Thanks so much for visiting the blog today. I've got a furniture makeover to share with you. I just can't pass up a good piece of furniture that I can add some color to! See the clean lines on this baby, it's a score for sure! If your refurbishing furniture, and are looking for ways to do it, mineral paint is a great option.
I found this piece at a garage sale for only Five Dollars!!! It is solid as a rock you guys. This small side table is very heavy, it made for quite the work out to get from the garage sale back to my house, lol! I wanted to try out Fusion mineral paint and my little guy wanted a new (small) dresser to put his t-shirts in. He is tired of putting them on the hanger - for real. Anyway, I am always looking for ways to add some affordable furniture in our home. This is a great project and will go to good use. Plus, anyone that knows me, knows that I am always looking for ways to save money, and painting old furniture is a great way to do this.
Since this will be going in my sons room, I wanted him to choose the color. He really wanted black. Guys, everything in his room is already painted black. His bed is a trundle that I took from white to black. Dressers and side tables, all black.
So, I convineced him to go for a little blue! I saw this color, Homestead blue from The Painted Estate in Denver and I fell in love. I told my son I would add some black wax to it so it would look just a bit darker. He reluctantly, agreed. lol. If your looking to buy the product you can also purchase online here.

I am excited to share with you a new feature on the blog, Mood Muse! I create Mood Boards for clients for design work and wanted to share some of the inspiration for my readers on the blog as well.
Mood Boards help inspire clients to begin to see how their space can be transformed with a few small changes. The board featured here, was created for a clean modern space, bringing some natural elements and a touch of color to the living room. It really is a space that I could really to live in. Greens are great color to use in a room that you want to rest and relax in.
Shopping links for the board are listed at the bottom of the post.
So excited guys! I was nominated for Best Color Inspiration for the Amara Interior Blog Awards. I haven't been true to blogging long but have really enjoyed sharing more color with you all this year. Make sure you check out the Inspired Paint section of my site too. Oh, and if you really want to - please vote!

Benjamin Moore Paint Color
One of my all time favorite paint colors is Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore. I suggest it often to clients for cabinets, accent walls, ceilings and moody rooms. I wanted to take some time today to highlight this gorgeous paint color and it's great hue.
When I suggested Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore Paints to my client for the cabinets above, they were a bit nervous. They asked, will the room look too dark? I assured them that the room would not feel dark, but custom and updated. We chose Edgecomb Gray for the walls which provides a nice neutral backdrop.
This color is beautiful against a clean white trim or paint color for crest contrast. It is a green gray paint meaning there is a slight green undertone to it.
Front Door Makeover
So excited to be sharing my front entry transformation with you all! Our entry way has been neglected since we moved in. I also wanted to buy a new front entry door so didn't do a color on the main front door when we painted the home, but now that we have decided to stick with what we have I knew that paint would make the entry way more interesting and welcoming.
Here is a photo of the entry before. The door was Urbane Bronze from Sherwin Williams, (a great color for trim and doors by the way!) It is also the same color as my fascia and garage door trim. I had painted the entry flooring a couple of years ago with an indoor / outdoor paint that didn't last long with the wear and tear of the winter here. Plus, I chose a light color that matched our trim, but isn't great for hiding dirt and wear and tear. (Even though I do like the contrast)
When clients are looking for a light cool gray, I always review Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl with them. A favorite Benjamin Moore Color with a very light tone.
Gray Owl from Benjamin Moore is a popular paint color. That's why I have decided to highlight it today. It isn't really one of my go-to colors, but many clients ask me about it so I feel it's an important one to cover.
This is a very pretty color, but it does change based on what it is paired with and the light in the room. It is a cool gray green. Here it looks beautiful on the cabinets. Notice the marble is a gray blue but it still blends wonderfully with the space. The natural elements of the lighting and stools blend very well.
