The last time I posted I commented that Big Bear and I were about to start our 'Family Room ReDo'. The project wasn't as terrible as I thought, and I LOVE the results. Here is a couple of pictures of the before:
Big Bear did the top trim, and I did the base and window trim. Not a shocker to those of you who know us. *hahaha* I got up to move around the corner and this is what I see:
After we finished the first round of trim work Big Bear commented how dark the color looked. It really did look darker than we had planned. Well, we finally figured out that I brought home the shade darker on the color swatch than the one we planned on. The color was supposed to be Teddy Bear Tan. Instead we got Smokey Topaz. I don't know if it was my fault or the paint guys, but it doesn't matter because this really turned out perfect.
The color looks a little more rust in the pictures than it does on the walls.
Now we are in discussion about what will go back on the walls. I really want to put the clock back up, my grandpa made it and even though it doesn't work anymore it means a lot to me. Big Bear doesn't show horses any more, so we are sort of past the horse pictures. I don't know which ones, if any, will make it back on the walls.
I saw them back in April on Pioneer Woman's blog and fell in love with them. I knew I wanted to find a place for them. We are going to put them up over the sofa table. Now the only question is two by two or four across????
The art work is titled 'Rain Prism' Here is the link if you would like more info or even want to get them for yourself. :o)
Next on the agenda are to paint the closets in polar cub's room. Hopefully I'll get that done this week. My niece and nephews arrive the first of next week, so I know I won't get much done while they are here. I'll be too busy playing! :)
