Painting the Living Room, Take 2

In the evenings, after the boys are in bed, Dave and I have been painting our living room again. Yes, we only moved into this house 3 1/2 years ago, and yes, we did paint everything when we moved in. But a girl is entitled to change her mind, right? At least I still like my furniture! (Okay, yes, we're painting SOME of the furniture right now, but gimme a break here)

Our living room is open to the split level staircase, and the wall coming up from the landing is probably 20 feet high. The landing is only about 2' x 4'. Here's a picture of me cutting in the ceiling last night.The color we chose is a Behr Satin Interior called Mochachino. We are planning to paint our dining room one shade darker called Twig Basket. Already it looks so much better than the sage green we originally had in there.

Remember the table and chairs I found at that garage sale? Well, Dave has finished painting them black, and he's planning to spray a coat or 2 of polyurathane this weekend. We'll post some pictures soon!

love the new template! and the new colors. i love browns, creams and warm neutrals. that is what my house is. i never saw the old color, but i am sure this will really warm up the tone of your house. have fun!

What fun! I am SO ready to invite some color onto my white walls. I'm just worried I will pick something that I won't end up liking.

I know Rachel, I am almost tired of the 2 rooms (kitchen-pale gray/blue and den-deep wine)we painted when we moved just over 2 years ago.

Next time we paint I'm going to pick all nuetrals, no actual colors. Is that boring? I just find I don't get sick of them as easy.

Problem is we both hate to paint...

Looks great, have fun!
