Movin' On Up!



Starting last Thursday Ken and I began painting our living room. It was a 3-day grueling project. You know you start these things and it's all excitement and fairydust and by the end it's like you can't stand to look at that same color anymore. It was long. But, totally TOTALLY worth it. Our living room was white- or so we thought. It turned out to be more of a dingy yellow color when we started painting the ceiling and trim. The light switches and plates were this old tainted ivory color. We're guessing they were the same plates that were there since the house was built. In the 60s. I'm posting before and after pictures. We are for hire. Ken has an excellent eye for color and design and I'm the work horse. We make a damn good team.

That looks awesome! I hate painting too, but I agree, it's worth it in the end.
