So I have done nothing lately except paint! And, to show you all how dedicated I am to your peace of mind and well being, I am posting pictures of my work, instead of reading Sea Glass by Maria V. Snyder (which is LONG overdue!)
So, I started on Layla and Seryn's room. I think I've posted before pictures in a previous post. And to keep this post from being eternally long, I'll only post the after pictures. And since Facebook is loading faster than Blogger tonight, for the virtual tour of my house, (at least the main floor) you'll have to visit me on Facebook! :)
But as I was saying, Layla and Seryn's room was first.
They had to have stripes! And since the wood was already painted, it wasn't a big deal. Unfortunately, the room was covered in wallpaper which WAS a big deal! But, I finally got it down and all painted. (FYI: The color is called Purple Surf.)
Lylli also wanted a purple room (Plum Frost.) She wanted the wood painted with stripes too, but I think it looks neat this way. And the wood matches the other parts of the house too, so we left it. Once she has curtains I think it will be greatly improved!
Shane took this week off and (thanks to him) I was able to get nearly the entire main floor painted! I still have the bathroom and playroom along with the cupboards in the kitchen, but there is no way I would have gotten so much done without him. Thanks, Handsome!
You can't tell in all the pictures, but there are three colors here. Mountain Ridge, Classic, Sandstone Cove. I think it turned out real nice. And I had a girl over tonight who couldn't stop looking at the dark brown. (I hope that was a good thing!)
There was no way I was getting up there that high!

Here's a shot of the kitchen. Not quite pre-construction, but mostly.
Here's after the track lighting is done. I really like it! In fact, when the lights are on, it kind of makes the blue look purple! The walls will also be the same color of blue but I'll post more pictures of the kitchen when the entire thing is done!
And here's the dining room. Originally the living room was supposed to be done in two colors but I was afraid it would be too dark. So, I added a third color (which was a good decision) but I had a ton of extra paint. So I used some of it in the dining room. It's only two colors, but it looks quite elegant!
Well, I know this isn't the same as looking at it first hand, but hopefully you enjoyed it anyway! Like I said, there are many more pictures on FB.
I think I'll take next week off!

Wow, the rooms look great! Lots of work, but I'm sure it's nice to have it all done.
