When we moved into our house we had the ugliest walls on the planet. They were dark dark dark burgundy. They were U G L Y, you aint got no alibi.
Steven took over, and painted some fun blue/white walls and we put some purple in with the blue in our dining room area. I had to really scrounge through my photos to find some pix of those walls. Here's Sir doing his favorite thing:
You can see the different levels of blues. This is our dining room area. That is Steven and his best friend, Stella.
You can see that we carried through with the blue/purple theme into our family room. This is the side wall, only painted under the chair rail. The big wall, which is the left of red-headed Taylor was all purple and blue.
Well, my wonderful painting husband has once again transformed the rooms. I present the family room:
We're not quite done, but we're getting there. Those stripes are black. I think they look navy blue in this picture? Anyway, we're doing a black/white theme in the two rooms. I'm thinking of painting that table black. How would I do that?
Here's the dining room area. I think this is my fave: (pay no attention to the mess)
We are doing two more things in these rooms, when they're done, I'll surely share. Have no fear, one of them involves color.
Of course, you know what happens. You think you're making one small change, and you end up changing the entire house....
