My newest project

I told myself I wasn't going to start a new house project until the master bath was done but I really can't help myself. Plus, I can do most of the work without even bothering Nate. So here's the plan........ I'm really looking for a cap cod style living room. Almost as if you could find my living room inside a beach house on mystic seaport. The color scheme is going to be a pale blue (wave crest) cream (irrish coffee) and light green and purple as accents. Here's a picture of what the finish product will be.

Here's what my living room started out as

Really it's not that bad...but it's not really my style. I don't like the look of the rustic trim and the fire place was too much. So the first thing I did was paint the fire place white.

I think it will look better with the blue. So this week I am going to be priming and painting lots and lots. I'll keep you updated.

As for the rest of us we are doing fine. Nate is doing sooooo well in his classes so far and Maddie is as curious as ever. Here's a picture of her enjoying some yogurt while incorporating her playtime.
