Paint!

Sorry I've been MIA for almost a week!

We've been super busy with life in general, so of course I choose now to start painting. The living room is done and I'm slowly making my way down the hallway now.
 
 Here is the living room before (a few days after moving in).......


and after.............






On the gallery wall behind the TV I used a dark navy and a taupey gray on the other three walls (I always use WalMart paint BTW).

I also "made" a sofa table for behind the couch (which will either be getting reupholstered or slipcovered eventually). This couch is so much longer than the old one so we didn't have much room for end tables. It's just two old nightstands with some finish plywood on top.

I still need to paint the china cabinet/bar, make some pillows, reupholster the pair of blue chairs and get some bamboo shades for the windows.

However, "the list" is getting MUCH smaller!  : )

Nice colors! I have such a hard time with grays...I'd be happy with a taupey gray instead of the purple gray, green gray, blue gray that I always seem to unwittingly pick. :\
