The board and batten project is finally finished. It wasn’t a difficult project but it does seem like an unending one once you start caulking. We continued the board and batten around the wall into the kitchen, because that seemed like a logical place to stop. The kitchen and family room are now Benjamin Moore palladian blue and it’s time to start decorating. Fun!
You can see the old Laura Ashley gold in the kitchen.
Now it looks like this. I’ve said before that I like green much better than blue, but this color grows on you. It looks a bit gray in this picture and in different light it can appear blue or green. I’ll put a drum shade or lantern above the table.
It’s about time the reds and golds in the family room are gone. This room has been taupe, gold and now palladian blue. For us, that’s about a new color every 5 1/2 years. That’s not so bad, is it? How often do you redecorate?
In the past year the faux greenery has gone, along with some of the accessories. Our comfortable old white couch is going. We’ll miss it, but it’s really starting to show it’s age and creaks when you sit on it.
The couch we ordered is from Hickory Craft and should arrive in about 6-8 weeks. It’s a popular style with nail head and turned legs, but this one is a little different because it has a high back.
It will look so different. I’m excited about the changes! I still have to figure out window treatments and tables but that’s part of the fun.
I’m still painting trim in the kitchen but that will be done soon, then I’ll start looking for fabrics and light fixtures.
In a couple weeks I’ll be moving to Word Press and Google friends connect will no longer be available to WP blogs. I hope you will follow me on twitter, facebook, Pinterest and rss feed in a reader. Thank you! I appreciate you coming by so much!
