Finally I am back to this little thing called blogging.
Finally we painted our living room which has looked like this since January:
I tried hiding it with those branches but there was a lot of random colors on the wall....and I hated them all.
So after posting about my indecision here and asking for help I waited another 3 - yes 3 - months to actually make the final decision. Ok, well actually Brandon forced me to make a decision - the random patches of color were driving him crazy so he escorted accompanied me to the hardware store and forced helped me take the big plunge.
So I took a big risk and chose.....
hah....seriously. I didn't even choose a color. But I have to say. I love it! I don't have all my things on the wall yet but the room is completely changed from that hideous mauve the previous owners had on there.
It is open, bright and fresh - as soon as I get the room pulled back together I will re-post with an update but here are a few snapshots from our fun day painting - even my sister Kate came over and helped.
The original nasty mauve color - yuck!
Kate - too busy painting to smile at the camera
Brandon - prepping the walls
Me - ok so we just hate the camera I guess
So here is the preliminary before and after:
Ok, so not as dramatic as I was hoping on camera but trust me - even though the only thing we updated was the paint, the room looks 100% better. I love it!
And I mean, at least there are no nasty color samples on the wall.
