Now that I've grossed you out, here's a few photos, as promised!
Showing the color change from the kitchen to living room:
overview of corner area (more decor items still needed):
opposite corner - the DVD case (on left) will be painted soon :
Another overview - again, still need to work on decor...
It's getting there... but I must say, I LOVE this new color - it's so "happy" compared to the blah pinky-tan color that was in here before!
Now I just need to determine what color to paint the DVD cases. Not sure if I want to go with gloss white, or a light sea green color (to compliment the walls) or even a deeper blue like the indigo that is on the accent table in the second and fourth photos. The Morris chair (antique chair with the teddy bears) may get a new cover once the couch is completed - leaning towards a soft denim-type fabric to make a casual slipcover. The striped club chair is also going to get a new cover, but I think I can get away with buying one from Sure-fit since it's a pretty standard size. Not that I don't enjoy making my own slipcovers... but it's sure a heck of a lot easier to buy one that will fit right out of the package!!
