Color, Color on the Wall...

Progress.  The living room has received two coats of a color called “carton,” available at Sherwin Williams. 

Painting behind the radiators proved to be a challenge, but anything is possible if you set your mind to it (and have a clothes hanger)!  There’s still a lot of woodwork to paint and the radiators will get some attention as well, but we’re making good progress to having all of our work completed before floor gets refinished in March. 

On the decorating side, we have a mirror on the way...

...that will go above the fireplace.  Similar to the one above but hanging vertically, it's 4 feet by 6 feet and should look impressive with the 11 foot ceiling.   A  chandelier...

...that will hang in the bump out, is on backorder, and we selected the fabric for the window treatments.  We’re going with Roman Shades so we don’t hide the beautiful woodwork around the windows.  Finally, we’re in the planning stages for the new fireplace surround and hope to have that figured out soon. 

Next up?  Install the bookcase.
