1 more task done

I'm surprised I'm still able to type because I painted again!
It's a sickness I tell you. I decided awhile back that I wanted to re paint my living room. I had some colors in mind so I got some sample paint and had swatches all over my living room. Well we have home groups coming over Sunday and I didn't want my living room looking like that so I decided to just do a couple of walls to cover them up and then I couldn't stop! I ended up doing the whole living room and hall and down the stairs and the basement hallway!

My hand is officially sore and I'm really done now!

Here's the before shot:




Here's the after shot- you're going to have to take my word that the couch doesn't clash with the walls, because the color is not coming through quite right:
Edited to add- the couches are actually a sage green- see what I mean about the colors not coming through correctly!!

Oh. My. Goodness! That is soooooo
Beautiful and soothing! Did you paint your sofas too? Hahahaha!
In the before picture they are blue and in the after picture, they are....beige? Whatever, they go nicely with the walls. Your living room looks like mine now. You have good taste! Hahahahaha!

Either you are insane or I am lazy!

Don't comment back about this one, hehe

It looks wonderful. I wanted that color, but my husband surprised me and painted my room the color of cappachino (sp) and now I'm stuck.

Wow! Looks great! Amazing what changes a little color can do. like the new look. I know how time consuming the painting can be, but so well worth it when it is finished.
