Home Improvement

We have lived here for almost a year and a half and for that entire time we have said that we wanted to paint the house. Well you know how that goes. We have lived with dirty, white walls for the last year and a half and almost everyday I say that we need to paint this weekend. Well yesterday Amanda and I went to Lowe's and bought the paint. I had to take her along because after the bright blue bathroom disaster of 2007 I am no longer allowed to pick colors by myself. Anyway, we found a great color and as I type Matt and Ian are prepping the family room and in a few hours I will have a new family room. Woohoo!

Here are the before pictures

This is the mess that has been created all around the room from the above photo

And while I have you here...these are the colors I am considering for the dining room. What do you think?

I like the green but my whole house is some version of blue, green or brown so I may not be the best person to ask!

I like the green too. I'm guessing that you like it too and that's why its the biggest tester spot. I can't wait to see it finished!!
