he's at it again.....

more paint and a clean new look....
well, a little cluttered yet..

he started by painting the trim and crown moulding..
this is looking from the kitchen into the sitting room...
this is the angle from the great room
once he got the new paint on the back wall
the color is called "porpoise" by behr...
there is a huge difference already.  i liked the old colors but they were a little dark
i think the new gray color is clean and bright looking now...
yesterday, he got the rest of the walls cut in.
the side walls are shade lighter, called "gentle rain" also by behr.
then... disaster struck.....
a whole paint tray of paint fell off of the ladder and landed here....
a full paint tray...
don was just sick...he called me at work and thought i was going to be so angry with him.
i wasn't...hey, accidents happen
(and some accidents help to push through the decision for new carpeting)
but not this time.  the dog's cage sits in that little niche and hides the stains very nicely,
dangit!!
today, it looks like this...
light and bright.
there will be a very large antique window hanging from that back wall.  and i mean big.
this room is next
how cute is she????
she is my screen saver right now...and the picture will be on my next color of the week post tomorrow.
can you guess what the color theme will be??




see you tomorrow...

This is inspiring. I've been looking at our living room and trying to envision something different...

I picked up the Gentle Rain paint sample at Home Depot last weekend. My living areas are currently tan and I am looking to brighten things up a bit. I have already spray painted current picture frames and vases a gloss white for decor. Thanks for sharing your photos I am now even more excited about making the change!

Your living room looks just like mine! I've never been happy with a furniture arrangement. I have a desk on one side of my fireplace and TV on the other - just like yours. Where do you put your sofa and chairs?
