Adding some color to the living room

One of the first things I did was hang this up and this became my inspiration to use colors that had shades of grey in it. 

So I visited Benjamin Moore and ended up using Flora. I also got a 50% less intensity of the shade to use on the non-vaulted walls as well as the hallway

My 8 foot ladder came in handy as I painted my vaulted ceiling. 

Before pics of living room

These were the realtor pics of the living room. It was very blah but spacious which drew me to the house. It was sound, structurally and most of the things I needed/wanted to fix was purely cosmetic.

This is my house.

I should have done this before. I bought my house in September – just a little over a year after moving to beautiful Austin. It is now January and I’ve done a lot on the house to make it a home.

Now, I’m going to create this blog that will put more detail of my trials and tribulations as I turn this blank canvas into my castle. I’ll also post ideas of what I would like to do as well so I don’t forget.
