The living room wasn't much better.
Then we got carpeting and brought some of our furniture out of the garage! It was starting to feel like a home....
But we still had paper taped up to the windows. The wall color was not my style. And no artwork. Nothing said this was OUR home.
It got me excited about painting the whole area!
A few more thousand patches to various holes, some sanding because it was semi-gloss paint---and I was ready to go!
But what color would I choose?!!?
If you know me, then you know....
Beautiful midnight/cobalt navy blue! I LOVE blue! (Ever seen my blog background?!)
Blue over maroon was actually a pretty easy thing!
Reaching up to the tall vaulted ceiling was not! And touching up the maroon paint already splattered on the ceiling was additionally hard.
But I got it done! I loved seeing some blue things peaking through from the kitchen to match! But the mustard yellow walls would have to go, too. A soft "parchment paper" white like we had used in the rest of the house was just the answer.
Turn around and you have a welcoming living room. Airy and open with blue velvet curtains!
Plants grow happily in the morning sunshine!
My Dad's painting of The Cows adorns the fireplace and makes me all happy inside! It feels like MY house now.
What do you think?
It sure feels nicer to me!
