Updating Living Room

So, I have been on a mission since about 9am this morning. I decided I was going to get to it and paint my living room. My living room has been lavender and yellow trim for some time. It served it's purpose but it is definitely time for a change. Here are some before pics
My living room is in two sections. The previous owners turned the garage into an extension of the living room so we have two levels. I only worked on the lower level today. But I worked from 9a.m. (trip to Walmart to get paint and supplies) until about 6 p.m. I'm exausted but the results! I'm so excited.....I painted the walls a "firewood" brown. I painted the trim a bright white and hated it so I painted over that with the same brown. I painted the decorative poles that are on top of the dividing wall to the laundry area...brown and I sponged a buttermilk color on them. They look so good. I won't give you the after pics until I have everything just like I want it. I have a piece of art that I want so much for that first wall over the couch. Anyway, even though I am so tired, I am pumped up because of the new look. Can't wait to show you. More work for tomorrow. It will probably take me all week to get all this done.

I can't wait to see the rooms, I know they will look great. We worked on the bedroom all day. We started @ 9:30a & didn't stop until about 8:30p. We cleaned out all the dresser drawers, under the buffet, the computer table, cleaned the baseboards, & rearranged the furniture, hung the new framed art & put the new sheets & comforter on the bed. We are also exausted!!! I'm about ready for a bath & then bed. Hope I get to do some art tomorrow. Rest tonight! Love ya, Hugs***Renea

No wonder you're tired! How many coats did it take to cover purple? It will be gorgeous when you're finished, so visualize that when your shoulder hurts! I'm impressed ~ what next for the Funky Art Queen? HGTV's home shows! Don't laugh!
