So Hard to Say Goodbye…

… Well, kind of. When we moved into this teeny casa of ours over 3 years ago, we went to the book store and picked up a handful of glossies for inspiration. Somewhere between a Chicago Home + Garden and a big, bad Nate Berkus hardcover, we fell in love with the combo of mint and kelly, and we’d been smitten with our punchy walls ever since.

But with the new wall came the chance for change, and although hesitant at first, we decided to say goodbye to the kelly green, Behr’s Chlorophyll, and continue the mint from the rest of the room, Behr’s Winterfresh. We thought we’d be sad. But we’re really sort of happy. And of course we have our foyer to keep my colorful heart content.

Painting the wall meant taking down everything (duh) – so basically half of our bitty living room. We’ve been living with chaos for the better part of a week, which surprisingly didn’t bother us as much as the kiddos. Jack can’t figure out where his shaggy carpet went, and Maddie has tried to lick my roller more than once.

And once again, our office became the stash-all. (From floods to friendly drop-ins, that poor room just can’t catch a break.) It’s really pretty amusing to see Scott squeeze into that little slice of space and work on the computer.

We’re thisclose and I’ll even tell ya that the wall is up! I don’t mean to be a tease, but it was dark upon (partial) completion and the shelves are still bare while the poly cures. And I’m still being a big ol’ weirdo about styling them, so updates on that are in order as well. Cure, poly, cure! Waiting is no fun.

    Looking forward to seeing it finished!

    Also, when we painted our birch trees in the living room Freckles licked the wall before I basically roped it off with contractor paper. Seriously, he licked the wall. And then I called him a freak like a mean dog-mom…ReplyCancel
