lambs ear

Acacia Haze

SW color of the month

I love this color featured for the month of February from Sherwin-Williams. It’s a beautiful sage green with the perfect amount of gray. I have been trying to find some good pictures of it in other rooms but haven’t had much success. If you have used it in your home, I would love to hear how you like it.

It reminds me of the color of my Lambs Ear that I have in my dining room.

It really is a beautiful green, and one that I am putting on my “to try” list.

Just a little color inspiration for this dreary February day (at least here in Montana). I hope you have a good one!

My Favorite Paint for Cabinets +Easy Peasy Touch-Up Paint

Today I am showing you the brand of paint we used on our cabinets and a quick, easy way to touch them up. I think the most important part of painting cabinets of any kind is the prep and the brand of paint you decide to use. For our kitchen cabinets we chose Benjamin Moore Advance.favorite paint for cabinets

I heard and read great reviews about this paint and after 3 years of everyday use and 4 kids, I can honestly say that this brand has exceeded all of my expectations. It is as hard as nails and I can scrub it and scrub it and it still keeps it sheen and shine. 🙂

 

There is one spot below our sink that gets the most wear and tear because it’s the cabinet where we keep our garbage and a lot of gunk gets on it,  you can see where the paint has rubbed off a little, but it’s very minimal and I have a super easy solution to touching it up.

I received this paint product from a company called Soto, and it’s been a lifesaver when having to touch-up little spots on my cabinets. If you have white kitchen cabinets, this is for you.  Soto comes in 9-shades of white, which match the majority of white surfaces,so chances are there is a shade that is perfect for your cabinets. You can browse their database here to find out which shade best matches your white paint.

Our cabinets are painted White Dove by Benjamin Moore and the closest match is Turkish White. I have painted it on a few places that had chips or marks and it blends in beautifully.

There is also a polyurethane top coat that you put over the paint that helps to seal and harden it.

And the best part? It’s soo easy and quick! I posted a quick video on my Instastories and it took me all of 10 seconds to touch up. 

Easy peasy and they look as good as new.

I always love learning about new products that are made to simplify my life, and this is definitely one of them. You can order them from Amazon (affiliate link) or go directly to their site. I hope this helps!

(These are all of my own opinions, Soto offered me the products which I have used and loved and wanted to share with you. Also, my review of Benjamin Moore Advance is all my own. I have not received any compensation from Benjamin Moore for this post. )

Have a beautiful day!

Our Kitchen Before and After

Good day! We have been in our house for 3 years this month and our kitchen has been done for 2 years, and I have never posted it. Sooo, today I am finally showing you our kitchen with one of my favorite paint colors.

Here are some before and after photos.

We have been so happy with our painted cabinets! The paint we decided to use is very durable, there is only one area that I have had to light touch ups and it’s a high traffic area. I will show you tomorrow how I do that and also the paint we used on our cabinets.

Our wall paint color is one of my favorites. It’s called Vapor Trails by Benjamin Moore. It is a perfect blue/gray with a hint of green at different times of day. If you are looking for a great Farmhouse neutral that has a touch of color, this is a great choice.

Vapor Trails by Benjamin Moore

Here is Vapor Trails in our dining room, which is right off our kitchen.

We are slowly getting our house to where we want it to be. Our laundry room is our last room to complete, and I am just adding some finishing touches (which sometimes take the longest). I am hoping to have a whole house tour, complete with paint colors and before and after shots soon. Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have a beautiful last day of January.
