Painting done!

Hey there! I hope you're enjoying your day...all is well here, except for my silly sinuses. It's raining and whenever it does I get a lot of congestion and pressure, including headaches and fatigue. But enough about that, let's talk about fun things!

Last week the painters came. We had them install crown molding in all the bedrooms as well as do the living room. In the living room we got molding with a rope detail, a matching chair rail, and standard shadow boxes installed. Before/during...

And After!
Now bear in mind I'm just showing you the painting and molding. We still have a lot to do in the wall hangings and furniture department! We're not keeping the striped chair in just seems too big and bulky. We've got a more streamlined one on order. The walls are Lenox Tan by Benjamin Moore on top; white on bottom; and a very light blue for the ceiling. Can you see it? Here's a closer-up shot...

And of course that's the chair I got at HomeGoods awhile back. Bookcases by Target; couch slipcover from LL Bean.
 We're looking for an ottoman/coffee table, and an end table too. We also ordered a liquor cabinet/bar that should be here next week. And, I'm going to make new pillow coverings for the couch, I think in some sort of a red print. I have a few in mind, more on that soon.

I stopped at Joann's the other day and I could not resist this rotary cutter! Isn't it cute?
I have the standard yellow Olfa one but a girl's got to have variety, right?

Talk to you soon!

  1. Lookin' good! Love the new rotary cutter. I have a few with prints on them too. They are just fun to have around.

  2. Jen,
    The crown molding looks wonderful! My hubby is great with woodworking so we installed every piece in this house and it is a job. And guess who his helper is .... ME! We have the rope molding around the top of our kitchen cabinets and I love the look! Yours look great! I can't wait to see what it will all look like when you have it completed!
    I LOVE the rotary cutter. I have the pink one!

  3. Did you pick me up one of those "sexy" looking cutters???? I need a new one!!!!
    Love how your rooms are coming together and all the molding designs--way to go-girl!!!!
    Hugs, di and miss gracie
