The redecorating project in the living room and dinning room is done. Yesterday the drapes came home from the dry cleaners and my husband put them up. I've spent the entire day trying to get a good photo but have given up. I just can't capture how pretty the metallic fire place is it keeps turning out this garish shade of green that is not accurate at all! I almost did not post pictures over the dismay I felt but thought I wanted to show the difference in the room. So you will have to let yourself imagine that it looks quite a bit prettier than the photos show, much softer and subtle if you can picture it. I am now on to the kitchen, nothing more than a major cleaning. One does not realize how dirty your house is until you repaint the walls and get up into all the little nooks you don't see every day. For those who can not tell, the white living room is the before and the blue living room is the after---. Now you should see the spare bedroom where all that "cute" art work is hanging out, that's a project for another day!!!!
