I've been busy, busy, busy! This weekend's project was the living room ( long overdue).
Before we painted it was eggshell color and in my opinion it wasn't painted at least 4-5 years, because the walls were in horrible condition.
Unfortunately, I don't have a picture " before" that can show how bad it was, only one from when we moved in:
Since then, we've bought new curtains ( golden color), new shelves from Amazon, 2 candle holders and the clock over the fireplace. The latter I bought from Michael's.
I've chosen Olympic paint again ( as low odor as possible), the shade is C11-3 Weeping Willow, relaxing green shade I love.
Unfortunately ( again) I am still with my old camera, so the pictures are as bad as you can get, sorry about that,. Still, it can give you an idea how it looks right now, although the real room looks way better then on the pictures :-).
I am pretty pleased with how it all turned out. I am still dreading next weekend when we are going to paint the kitchen, since it is all covered in wallpaper. We had hell of a time trying to scrape the wallpaper in the bathroom, so I can't even imagine how much work we would have in the kitchen.
I'll keep you posted how it would turn out!
Oh, and I am happy to say I have a pretty good idea what I am making about the cake challenge. As soon as we finish with the kitchen I'll make the cake. Be patient and at the end of the month I'll show pictures :-)
