There is PAINT on the WALLS!
It isn't much, just Husband's green office, but this makes me feel as though we have made some kind of progress! It is a very beautiful, rich green. A little more "hunter green" than I thought it would be, but I don't think it will be too country-ish of a color once we get some contemporary furniture into this room! We also dabbed our blue on our master bedroom wall, and I cannot wait until that gets painted (it is just so lovely). This weekend we also braved the icy roads and were able to visit Lumber Liquidators (because the word "liquidators" is always good in conjunction with expensive merchandise!) We found some hardwood flooring we absolutely love: bamboo called "Great Silk Road." Here is a terrible picture of the beautiful sample. Now all we have to do is order it, then pick out complimentary cabinets for the kitchen, some carpeting for the upstairs, and we're in business, y'all!
