A Change is Coming!

The Before....
My poor family room needs to lighten-up.
Many years ago we painted this room a
color called Mississippi Mud.
I liked the way this colored worked with the color
in my adjoining kitchen and breakfast room.
However, with the onslaught of Wii play,
my kids prefer the blinds drawn closed,
leaving this room to feel somewhat like a depressing tomb.
I decided it was time for a change.
Of course this "change" now involves not only this room,
but the kitchen, breakfast room
the entry hallway.
We have completed the painting in the family room
and hope to finish the rest this weekend!
Stay tuned for the Afters!

This is a beautiful room. I can't imagine how you can improve on it but I do look forward to seeing the changes.

Don't you just love how one project leads to another and another...
I can't wait to see what colors you picked, if you picked one color or three different! How exciting :)
I like the pillars that divide your family room and kitchen!

Oh boy... here we go. The artist has picked up a paint brush. I can't wait!!
And I agree with Mary, your family room is really beautiful. Love the huge, pained window.

I love seeing your before and afters! I do my Wii walking with the front door open...I'm always afraid I will look up and see someone watching me look like an idiot!

I painted last weekend too... and not the "fun" kind of painting either. Mine was an upstairs bedroom with lots of trim, as well as the adjoining bathroom. I got everything put back in place, but I still want to make new curtains for the bath window and put new knobs on the vanity. Those little details take time and I get distracted from the finishing.

We are anxiously awaiting the "afters"!!! (Though I will have to say I really like your befores!)
