Friends, it’s June and the renovation of the Florida property has begun! When I last talked about the house we purchased in Florida and shared some thoughts for the remodel, I stated the very first factor I required to do was address the dark blue walls with clean white paint!

Enter Magnolia Household by Joanna Gaines® paint. When we bought the property the prior owner had painted the dwelling area with a navy blue accent wall, a good shade but not my fashion for this room.


I crave new white partitions in community rooms, particularly types that move from room to house. A white or a neutral backdrop allows the household furniture, art, crops, and accents to glow. I was in a position to total this makeover in a single working day!

I picked up swatches and a sample in the early morning, chose the perfect color, and I was portray by the middle of the day. Prior to painting, I prepped the house by eradicating electrical plates and defending the flooring with a tarp. Following two coats of paint, by the evening I was completed. The up coming morning I moved the new home furnishings and accents into put. An simple 24 hour makeover!


Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines® paint delivers 150 colours to choose from. I went straight for the neutral zone and perused their assortment of whites. I debated in between ‘Silos White’ and ‘Pearly Cotton’ and selected the latter because it was nearer in hue to the surrounding walls.

‘Pearly Cotton’ is described as a bleached beige, which is spot on. It has a hint of vanilla to it much too, and surely leans extra beige than taupe. It is a pretty warm white that matches my residing home area beautifully.



I was satisfied to study much more about the Magnolia Residence by Joanna Gaines® paint line by KILZ® since I’d never worked with this model in advance of. The paint contains primer which will save a action! In its place of employing primer and then covering partitions with two coats of paint in the earlier, the primer is no for a longer time important. I chose the matte sheen for a smooth powdery end.


The Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines® paint line by KILZ® protected most of the navy blue in the to start with coat, about 90%. To realize even protection, I included a 2nd coat of ‘Pearly Cotton’.

What I really like about this paint is the great coverage and there’s no odor. After an afternoon of painting two coats, I did not require to open windows or wait around for paint fumes to dissipate. I was in a position to rearrange the residing area the pretty future working day.

I swapped out the preceding owner’s rug, coffee table, and end desk and eliminated the fake fire. In its place I included a fashionable credenza, my individual art print, and a number of equipment I bought regionally.
