The Mudroom: Painting White Brick and Black Doors
[Disclaimer: We partnered with Sherwin-Williams on this post however, all opinions and photography are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog!]
Yesterday I shared the backstory behind the mudroom and my design inspiration for this space. But you guys… today I seriously can’t wait to show you how much different this space looks now that the brick has been painted. This transformation has been my favorite project so far and the room is still far from complete!
Can you even believe this is the same space?! I just can’t even. To say I’m obsessed with the white is quite the understatement.
Sherwin-Williams: Extra White
The mudroom felt bigger, lighter, and the ceilings seemed so much higher with the new color (taking down the huge lantern helped too).
Sherwin-Williams: Tricorn Black Emerald
It doesn’t even seem like the same space!! The black and white contrast is honestly better than I even expected. The floors aren’t even in and the room feels 1,000% more me. It’s so clean, fresh and bright.
The Progress Doesn’t Stop!
The only bad thing about this entire process is that once the paint was done, I wanted to start decorating immediately, but we still have to finish the floors. We finally decided on the perfect tile, which was harder than I expected because of the unexpected challenges that came with the current flooring situation.
But the great news is that the tile team has been busy working away and I should have an update for you guys next week!
