The Hellwigs Have Gone Green!

Posted by Gabrielle

And no, we haven't found any more particularly economical ways to do things, but we have gone green with...paint! Last November, we painted the dining room, and the kitchen has needed it badly too, so, a couple weeks ago, while Timothy was on our church's Civil War history tour, we painted the kitchen in three days.

This is the kitchen before,

 and the breakfast nook before. Pretty plain, isn't it?

Painting Day 1

Yours truly, taping the ceiling. Actually, being up on the ladder was my favorite part beside the actual painting.

And...

This may be how the Hellwigs decorate for parties, but it's also a clue to our next big event...more coming soon!

Oooohhh!! I love that color!! Very nice. I can't believe it's been a year since we painted in our house. I was looking for some colors for bedrooms.....hmmmm....I might need the name of that color :-)
