Cassie at Primitive and Proper recently introduced me to a new blog, The Blooming Hydrangea. She thought I would like it because Ange at the Blooming Hydrangea and I have a similar style. In the last few weeks, Ange and I have bonded over our love of our goldendoodle puppies among other things.
Anyways, Ange and I were having an email exchange last night and she said that she wasn't at the computer most of the day because she was painting her living room Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore. Well, guess what I was doing most of the day yesterday? Painting my living room Gray Owl! I guess Cassie had it right when she thought Ange and I had similar decorating styles!
Here are some pictures of my new living room color.
As you can see, I'm still waiting for *someone* to help me with the extra-high areas.
I'm waiting for that *someone* to help me move the piano as well.
At least this gives you an idea of the color I started with. Yes, those are the paintings I bought at an estate sale over two weeks ago...still just sitting out.
I don't like how the TV stand blends into the wall. I also can't stand that niche. I never know what to do up there. In fact, it still has the painting wrapped in wrapping paper from Christmas. You know how one thing leads to another.... Now, I'm thinking about all kinds of new projects for the living room, starting with painting that buffet. More on that later. I'm off to take care of two sick kiddos.
Oh and by the way, I'm all ears if you have any ideas for me! You are always so helpful and have great ideas.
