Kirkwood Update #5 Paint and Cabinets

It’s painted inside and out and the cabinets are in.  Of course not in these pictures—things were just in progress here.

Our palette:  The front room Sherwin Williams Gateway Gray SW7644


Trim throughout the house: Sherwin Williams Snowbound SW7004


For the den and kitchen—Sherwin Williams Softened Green SW6177


I’m so glad we decided to paint the fireplace. Once again I must remind everybody—There is no special place in hell for people who paint brick. If it’s ugly—PAINT IT!

Hang in there with me—more pictures are on the way.

    I found this blog through Terry’s blog and I have to double down on what you’re both saying — most brick needs to be painted! This includes exteriors and interiors (fireplace). I’ve lived in Virginia much of my life but grew up in southern California, where no one bats an eye at painted brick. My neighbor has a Georgian built in 1950 which used genuine old brick, and it’s worth keeping as is. Most of the rest of the houses in the ‘hood are brick, built from the 1920s to 1950s, and all of them would look better, and less blah, if they were painted. Just my opinion of course; Virginians are very wedded to original brick!
