It only took about a month, but I finally finished painting the living room–walls, trim, doors, ceiling. I’m taking a painting hiatus for awhile. If you ever have the urge to paint something chocolate brown, avoid the urge! It took two coats of primer and two coats of color to cover it up. But now we have a light-filled room that looks almost a little beachy. Or would if we didn’t have dark brown furniture. I don’t mind. I don’t actually like cottage/beach looks, so you will not be seeing any wicker enter our house anytime soon. Now that the room is painted, I need some new pillows (the one pictured went with the old paint) and maybe a new blanket. Because who doesn’t want a new blanket?
