Nizzzaaaasssty! I feel it necessary to point out at approximately this point past the front door, my husband tried to turn around and walk back out.

He.  Had.  Seen.  Enough!!

Purdy, eh! Who go’s to the paint store and say, hmmmmm….I think we will go with that REALLY, REALLY DARK GREEN! Also, lets point out again, the awesome dark trim around the windows, the floor, the ceiling & of course the little port hole or whatever that awkward round thing is…. Again, we have a gigantic BEAM going across the room, this one has huge snails or something on each side. The old school looking gas wood stove set up was pretty scary to me as well….

This green was a BEAR! It took primer. It then took multiple coats of the wall color. LAMESAUCE!

But it was the 2nd thing I HAD to attack once we moved in.

So, with a little love and a LOT of labor, I got pretty outstanding results! We did the same white trim around all the windows, doors, floors and ceilings. I chose one shade darker for the two walls next to the brick area.  That shade is called Cocoa Cream. I also really wanted to have some walls with that name! ;o) I removed the snail things & I painted the beam with the other color, Butter Pecan.

Ignore the furniture, we haven’t bought new stuff since 1998…once we remodel, we want to furnish according to the brains of an actual interior designer!

But, I find it ironic that our furniture is dark green!!

And….I kinda like the fake wood stove thingy now…we heated the entire house all winter with it and haven’t had to use the furnace yet.

Uber-cheap awesomeness!
