My {not so little} Project

I have painted nearly every room in the house. I love painting different colors and giving the house a cozy kind of feeling, but until now, our living room, the room we spend the most time in, has remained the blah yellowy-beige painted by the builder. I think I shyed away from tackling this project because of all the arched entryways, rounded corners, mantle, art nook, and windows that make up this space! But this weekend I started and now I have to finish. And I'm already so tired of my living room being in shambles that I'm trying to finish soon. Here are a few pics of the work in progress... the color I'm using is Timeless Taupe in Olympic paint. It's low odor, so there are really no fumes, which is great! The color sort of looks like silly putty when its wet (yeah, I was a little worried when I started painting!!!), but dries to the beautiful color of a Wendy's frosty! Yum! What do you think?

Love it! We have a Frosty colored wall, too! And with our matching kitchen glasses, we won't know which house is which! haha

Oh, and sorry, we were out of town all weekend, so needless to say, my closet & kitchen sink are NOT going to be posted online for the word to judge. I mean see. hahaa. If I can clean up a bit first.....But I am impressed with your cleanliness!

My cleanliness??? Did you see the closet and the laundry room?? Yikes! And good thing you couldn't zoom in to the kitchen sink or fridge pictures, haha!

I am very impressed you are painting at all. That is HUGE! Charlie must be a very good baby or you are very productive at nap time. Love the color! Our bathroom is a shade of "frosty". :)
