    An Update on Our 1888 Fixer Upper + Paint Colors… check out the progress we’ve made and I’m answering some of the top design questions!

    I’ve been getting so many emails and DM’s about paint colors on our fixer upper after posting this image to instagram, so I figured I better do an update.

    I still don’t have very many after photos, because it is pretty dusty in there. However, we are getting SO close to being finished. Never in a million years did I imagine it would take this long, but I really love how it turned out. It’s everything I imagined and more. It took me days to figure out all the right paint colors. I really wanted to choose colors that would match the era. The grey I chose is timeless. I originally was going to go with a blue or navy for the exterior, but the grey won me over! I opted for a fun bright color on the door instead!An update on our 1888 fixer upper + paint colors

    So here is the full list of paint colors we used below. I know y’all are dying to see more photos inside (crossing my fingers the electrician finishes this weekend so we can get it cleaned). I’ll have lots of after shots to show you over the next month! It really is quite the transformation. For now, I’m going to list all the colors we used (inside and out), so they are located in one post.

    If this is your first time here you can see my first post on it here , the demo post here and the progress post here.

    Thanks so much for following along on my journey! It’s sure been a CRAZY ride! Never in a million years would have I imagined it would have taken this long, but there’s been a lot of lessons (some I’m still trying to figure out) learned along the way. I’m still planning on doing a post on that once it’s all finished :)
