As I previously mentioned, I have the living room painted (save for a bit of touch-up work. Here are the before and after pictures.
I’m quite happy with the new paint job. It brightens up the room quite a lot and is so much more “us”. I’ll have to get a daylight photo sometime. I painted the archway between the living room and dining room blue as well. Hubby thought it looked better white. I think it looks better blue. I’m still finishing up the painting in the “hallway” – I just have one more coat around a few edges and then we can put the trim back up. I still have some touch-up work to do in the living room and dining room and the window frames need a new coat of paint. The stairwell heading upstairs is still sage green and I’m going to paint it blue. The stairs are currently painted a brownish-maroon. I think I will paint the horizontal parts blue and the backs of the stairs white. At some point we plan to put a carpet runner on the stairs for some cushion.
