And Now We're Turning Yellow!

Posted by Gabrielle

You may remember that recently I posted how we had gone green. Well, that wasn't the end of the story. After returning home from Tennessee, we decided it was time for another color: Yellow! And this time, it's the Living Room!


As with the rest of the house, the Living room before was painted in a flat contractor off-white. Not very attractive, especially when it's dirty and can't be washed.

The "during" pictures were taken by Elliot with my camera, for yours truly was painting! Here, I'm mixing up a new can of paint.

Here, I'm using both the rollers, one in each hand. It was a fantastic experience, but I wouldn't recommend trying it yourself.

Getting ready to finish the last part over the mantel - nearly done!

A high-five and a handshake over a job well done!

The walls cured and the room decorated (pardon the laundry on the floor and on chairs...at least you can get an idea of what our living room usually looks like!)

Ah...much better. Lovely, isn't it? We actually hung all the frames and finished the decorating in one evening because...well, you'll just have to wait till the next post!
