Paint on the walls . . . .

I've been so busy with getting ready for my first quilt show, that I haven't had much time to work on the house.  Now that the show is over, I have jumped back into the painting.  So far I have put two coats on the living room walls.  

Here is a picture of a wall in progress to you can see the big difference in the color.  Flash wouldn't work in this picture. Probably because the sun was coming in this window.


I think I am really going to like the change.  Tomorrow I will start with touch-up paint on the trim and adding more trim to the french doors.


The closet you can see on the left in this picture is a closet that is under the stairs.  I have already painted it and moved the office supplies into it.  We use this as an office of sorts.


And all the trim and crown molding has to be added to this wall.  This was another "money pit" wall that Dear Hubby had to strip to the studs and add new drywall.  But it's all better now!

The color of the wall is Lyndhurst Stone from Valspar paint (Lowes).  The trim is LaFonda Sagebrush from Valspar.  Both are from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. 

I sure hope I can add to this blog a lot more often now that the painting is coming along nicely!

Blessings, Cathi
