I'm about to go on another obsessive-compulsive tear regarding the house. Those of you have been following my blog know all about the garden retaining wall (summer of '05), and the pavestone walkway (summer of '06). I don't believe I blogged about the garage. It's too small for a car and anything else, so we officially made it a workshop. I painted the walls (white), painted the floors (gray), purchased and assembled a large cabinet, a small cabinet, a workstation with hutch, added a small 7 cubit foot freezer and an A/C window unit.
Now I'm moving on to the living room. It's currently painted a shade of taupe with one red accent wall (the wall that houses the corner fireplace). It looks very nice in my opinion, as well as that of the two realtors we met with when we thought we might want to sell our house and buy another (I think we've gotten over that idea).
Anyway, a few weeks ago we decided to splurge on a new sofa. We found one we liked, but I knew instantly that it wouldn't go with our living room color scheme. The sofa won't arrive for a couple of weeks so I borrowed the fabric swatches from the furniture store on Saturday and went shopping. I ordered an area rug, and selected my new paint shades.
The cranberry red accent wall will be painted...a different shade of red. The taupe walls will be painted...a different shade of beige (the new beige has a slight greenish cast). I hope to start painting on Thursday. I also hope to finish painting on Thursday. Wish me luck!
