Since the Memorial weekend weather was so yucky, Levi and I decided to start some summer projects a little early. We wanted to paint the living room, but were having difficulty deciding on a color. So as our old house as our inspiration (see below), we decided on this color.

The following are before pictures of the new house.

After Levi bought us a fireplace for Christmas, the living room furniture does not seem to flow/fit with the room. We could not settle on a room arrangement. So while at my sister's house one day I asked her if she wanted to change living room furniture. I also bought 2 ottomans at a yard sale and a chest (coffee table) and a table for a good deal downtown.
The following are pictures after we rearranged the furniture, bought a rug, installed a fan and painted. I am not quite sure how I feel about the color. It is a little bright. I love how it lightens the room and makes it feel more cozy though.
Next, I decided to take on Zoe's bedroom. I have been wanting to paint it since we moved in. The furniture was mine from when I was little. The rocking chair has been passed down on my father's side from my great, great, great grandmother (I think that many greats). The blanket on the rocking chair was made by my mom's mom. The crib I borrowed from my sister and the crib blanket I made and Levi's Grandma and her sisters hand quilted for me. The toy chest you can read about in my post below. I love how so much of her room has meaning.
Here are the before pictures.
Here are the after pictures.
You will have to tell me what you think. Be honest. I promise it will not hurt my feelings.
I have some really cute videos of Zoe from this past weekend, but for some reason blogger will not let me load them. I guess I will try later.
