Paint Update!

I took the entire week of Thanksgiving off work, and while it would have been nice to rent some movies and check a few books off my reading list, I did neither of those things. My motto last week was "no rest for the weary", and it was so worth it! Remember this post?? Well, I officially bid "adieu"!!

BEFORE:




AFTER:
I haven't rehung the gallery wall photos because I'm thinking about changing them. Currently, the wall has all of our wedding photos, but I'm considering putting sketches from a book in them instead (maybe a book filled with black and white Matisse drawings).




I decided this afternoon, when I finally finished painting, that I am in love with the end result. I couldn't be happier! For anyone interested the color is "Clam Shell" (516-6) by Pittsburgh Paints.

In other news, our new entryway light arrived Wednesday; the current one hangs too low (whoops, my fault). I need to con my father-in-law to teach me how to hang light fixtures; if he's a smart man he'll refuse knowing that I'm the most clumsy person in the world.
Either way, this little pretty needs to find its way to the ceiling- FAST!


Lastly, I've primed and painted the nightstands. I still need to sand them lightly and do one last coat. As you can see I haven't figured out the hardware situation yet, so I've left them unpainted for the time being.


That's all for now! It's back to reality (work) for this one!!!


XOXO,

Kelly
