to blog more frequently but alas, it just wasn't meant to be.
but i've been busy. really, i have.
i always said that once the kids were all in school, i would re-do my living room. it's a big space. 15'x25' feet to be exact. and it's never been quite right in the layout department. so first things first; i decided to paint the walls. the original color of my walls was off white. then 13 years ago, i decided to paint it yellow/gold. i was never really in love with the color but i had a bunch of babies and there was never a good time to repaint.
i was torn on which gray to go with and decided on edgecomb gray by ben moore...
nope. hated the color. it just wasn't warm enough for living room in my opinion. so the next day, i went out and got a different color:
rainwashed by sherwin williams. it's a beautiful color and i love it on my walls.
now onto area rug. the old rug was a huge gold colored rug. again, never really loved it. but now...
and so are the kids. it is so soft and since i do not allow shoes inside the house, it's lovely on bare feet. :)
will update more as i slowly go through my redecorating process. i am getting my wing back chairs re-upholstered along with my ottoman. the ottoman, i am going to attempt to do myself. i feel like i've watched enough youtube videos to give me a good idea on what not to do. :)
wish me luck!
