Morning Meanderings.. New Look To A LONG Overdue Room
Good morning! Happy Tuesday to you! Yesterday was an odd day in Minnesota. It has been around 50 degrees over the weekend and all our snow was gone. Then yesterday afternoon it rained HARD for a few hours and by evening it turned to snow. Now we probably have about three inches on the ground again. *sigh* Minnesota.
Over the weekend I painted our living room. It was a LONG TIME coming. When it was painted 10 years ago (I know, I know…) I never really liked it. It was a pinky, rosy…. well you will see…. anyhoo…. I have no idea what took me so long to change it…. but here it is… before and after:
(Above) This is before. The one wall… bottom right, is the wall that leads downstairs, the large space I painted about a year ago. I did not like that wall either.
After! Oh my gosh I LOVE IT!!! It is a rich chocolate color. It is officially called Study Brown (boring name!) but to me it is chocolate. It is a much warmer color and I love just sitting in the room and looking at it. Yes… I just look at it.
Funny note… I never tell Al (hubby) when I am taking on a project. I just do it. When he came home Sunday evening he looked in the living room and he says, “Oh, where did that table come from?” (Referring to the table that I moved from one side of the recliner to the other….)
I responded, “Is that all you notice?”
Al looked carefully around the room and could not pick out any other change.
*sigh*…. 4 1/2 hours of painting and arranging and nada….
Today I am working off a check list of things to do. Why does it keep getting longer??? It is our oldest sons birthday and he is coming over for dinner tonight. I have errands to do in town, and clothes to drop off to charity. I am on a de-clutter mission. It will be an audio day. 😀 (Although last night I did start Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.) Give it up for the Harry Potter Re-Read along!!!!
