I feel like I’ve been neglecting the blog lately. Life has been so non-stop crazy I don’t think we ever get any time to just relax these days! I guess that’s not a bad thing, but I do enjoy those days where a nap fits in 🙂
I haven’t done a house update in a while! That’s another part of our lives that have been non-stop. We’ve been painting. A lot. The dining room one week then the living room. No biggie right? Wrong.
The dining room was no sweat. Took me 2 nights in a row to do, about 4 hours total. The. Living. Room. Aka the nightmare to paint. Our rooms downstairs all have higher ceilings since the house is about 100 years old. So 2 days before Thanksgiving I thought it would be a good idea to start painting the living room. Thanksgiving was at my Mom’s house so it’s not like anyone would see the mess that day. So off I went painting the room, moving a ladder every 5 feet so I could reach the trim. So fun. Then…not so fun. After 7 hours of non-stop painting I made Charlie come help me finish. I was exhausted. The first night of painting I did some trim for 2 hours, and the next night took us 8 hours to finish the room. A total of 10 HOURS. I’m not lying.
But – it was totally worth it. I’m so happy with the color choices we made and how warm and inviting the house looks when you first walk in. It’s so crazy how a little paint can instantly change a room’s environment. Also, these pictures were taken mostly as night with my iPhone so sorry for the quality. Better ones will be uploaded.
Ok, enough blabbing, check out what we did:
I am officially obsessed with these colors and white trim. The trim seriously pops out now. No more ugly white walls! Someone remind me why I waited so long to paint these rooms? Anyone?
Once everything is put back into place and we have all the Christmas decorations out (and our first TREE!) I’ll post more progress photos of how the rooms look 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by!
