I really am going to do it this time. I know you are tired of hearing about it.
I am going to paint the red room.
But now I have to decide which color.

When we bought this house 7 years ago I wanted everyone room to be a different color. And I loved that. And now I am ready for a change and I want each room to be a different shade of blue or green.

So back to the red room. What color? A fresh lemony green like in the dining room picture

or a more gray-blue-green like in the living room picture?

Should I paint the beadboard a color or leave it white?

I think the sitting room will become the lighter green and my kitchen the gray-er green. But that is just my guess today...

One descision I have made is about these chairs I bought this weekend at ReStore.
I paid $15 a piece for them.I adore the shape, the size and the feel.
I hate the fabric.
I attempted to make slipcovers for them.
Thank goodness my mother has had mercy on me and is going to take over this project.

Of course they won't be this fancy  but I think they will come out looking more like this than not due to their shape.


  1. Every room in my house is a shade of blue or green. I'm totally on board! :) I like that lemony shade you showed. Something fun and different!

  2. I like the lemony color with the white bead board. Can't wait to see it!

  3. Can't wait to see... and be sure to show us you're re-arrange too. I'm loving how you're swapping the two rooms. I'm LONGING for a re-arrange in our living/dining room but have no idea what to do.

  4. I love the color of your living room; so soothing! I agree with doing the sitting room the lighter green; you definitely want to keep the sitting room light and airy. Can't wait to see what you decide!


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
