Painting the Q!

My bf and I live in a PMQ on the base here in Greenwood. When we moved in the walls are all white and if you want to paint it you have to paint it back to white before you move out.
So not know if we were going to buy a house, if he was going to get posted or whatever ... we didn't paint the walls.
We lived with the white walls for almost a year before we decided to paint!
And I can say it is WELL worth it! We both love it and it feels so much better in here now with colour!

We went with a light blue in the bathroom, and we had a lot left over (we only have a tiny bathroom) so we did our bedroom in the same colour! I was skeptical it would look good at first but afterwards it did turn out well. We did the hallway a beige, the kitchen a red, and the living room green!
Here are some before and afters of the living room and kitchen (bathroom, hallway, and one bedroom were hard to get good pictures of):

Blog Mom says those colors look great. (I see color differently so it's harder for me to tell.)

Looks great! I've been in a new house with white walls for a year. Thanks for the inspiration - I need to get to work! :)
