Not-So-Rustic Cabin in the Woods + Behr Paint
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed some recent rustic cabin in the woods photos and, as promised, I’m sharing some sneak peeks with you today!
First, I must say, this rustic cabin in the woods is NOT so rustic!
One thing led to another with the cabin renovations and it’s looking and feeling like a brand new place now but I’m determined to keep it rustic by the home decor accents (it’s all about the accents, right?)
So grab your cup of cocoa and cozy up to some sneak peeks of this tiny rustic cabin tour.
Here is the living room of the not-so-rustic-cabin-in-the-woods. I’ve cozied up the grey couch with an assortment of soft throw pillows and blanket throws.
I love the warm neutral wall color I picked out.
It’s called Varnished Ivory paint and I used the new line of Marquee paint from Behr.
It actually goes on in ONE coat. I couldn’t believe it.
Here is the before color on the wall. It was a greeny-beige color that looked drab.
Getting prepped for painting!
The gorgeous kitchen cabinets and countertop were already installed and had to get covered up for protection during the painting.
It’s so light and bright in here now. The paint completely freshened the place up!
The built-in bookshelves were already here and I’m trying to make them a little more rustic. I have a few ideas up my sleeve so stay tuned.
Another before shot of the kitchen.
I love the way the light flows through the kitchen.
We used the same creamy white color throughout the entire place.
Don’t you love these floors??
My daughter already knows where the snacks are kept in the renovated kitchen!
We are just waiting on some rustic open shelves for the kitchen. I cannot wait!!
Loving the tranquility of the place now, it has complete serenity!
Can’t wait to get some window coverings.
And put my deer head up here and some rustic art.
Loving the freshly painted walls.
Just recently in September Behr announced their 2015 Colour Trends. Of course I gravitate to the neutrals like this gorgeous grey:
But I’m also in love with these new colors:
You can see more places where I’ve used Behr paint here, here and here.

This is beyond gorgeous Jamie! I really need to try this Marquee line too.
It looks gorgeous, Jamie! You have impeccable taste! What kind of surface are the countertops?
Aww, thanks girl. The countertops are quartz.
It’s absolutely beautiful Jamie! I LOVE that wall of subway tile and can’t wait to see it with your shelves 🙂
Thanks Ashley! Yes, I’m dying to see what the shelves will look like too!
Found you from The Old Painted Cottage. I love your remodeling, my favorites are your kitchen and bathroom remodels. They are my favorite colors. As I am in the midst of remodeling myself, might take a few ideas and paint colors. I use Behr paint too.
So glad you’re here, Sue! I still love all my paint colours and I picked them five years ago. I always seem to have great success in finding paint colours I like with Behr, even in our old, old house.
Truly beautiful transformation. And I love your sofa!!
Thanks so much, Laura 😉
Wow! What a beautiful transformation! Also, I am experiencing serious sectional envy 🙂 It is the perfect color. Thanks so much for sharing on The Makers!
Thank you so much, Amy.

Thanks so much 😉
Hi, love the space! What type of sheen did you pick for your paint and also what color did you do in the trim. Thanks
Hi Kristin, thanks so much 😉 I picked eggshell sheen and just a white semi-gloss for the trim.

That kitchen is so gorgeous! I love how you took the tile all the way up and got rid of those top cabinets. It makes the kitchen so open and modern (in the most rustic cabin way!) Thanks for linking up to the Be. YOU. tiful link party Jamie! Can’t wait to see more!
