Project Update

So, finally the guest room is painted. I went with Benjamin Moore's Lenox Tan. I'm happy with the results, phew. I also have photos of the columns now painted in the same cream as the kitchen cabinets. Carpet should be installed sometime in the next week or two, so my house has been upside down with closet cleaning, etc... Hey, you see I got bold and primed the dark green armoire, and removed the dark chairrail in the guest room. I'm thinking to use a chocolate brown on the armoire, like the dark piece in the inspiration photo, and at the recommendation of the Kari and Kjisa of course. Still waiting on my comforter to arrive, it's on backorder. And of course finding a pattern for the window dressing for my lovely sister. Boy I'm going to owe her big time aren't I? So, that's all for now. I've been really busy lately, working on a big project at work, so I haven't had much time for blogging. But as soon as I get a little less on my plate, I'll be over to visit you all. Hope everyone is having a terrific week. Finally some great weather here!

I had plenty of help with the priming

  1. It's coming together! When all the pieces are in place it will be such a wonderful room. I love the wall color and the armoire is going to be just right. Can't wait to see it painted. I wish I had room for an armoire somewhere in my house! The columns look so nice. What a nice change with the wall out. Aren't you glad you took the chance? ~Adrienne~

  2. A place in which I could get real comfy real quickly. Nice, nice! Thank you for your gracious "welcome." I feel right at home.
