Changing a few decorations and some paint too.

Hello...it seems like I have been so busy but I don't have as much done as I would like. The weather today was sunny and cool with a few rain drop in the early morning.
I was tired of my red walls and decided to go with a buttery yellow. I have never had yellow before but I have seen it on many blogs and magazines so I decided to try it.I made 3 trips to get different test cans of different yellow paint. Once I choose one my mother came over and we spent parts of two days painting. Let me tell you...it was such a change. During the day the yellow was wonderful but Oh at night...well..even my teens said...it had to go...so after much frustrationa and time and money...it is painted red again...a little different shade but indeed red. lol now that is just no fun.
Anyways we moved three rooms of sofas and love seats...now that the furniture is where it is suppose to be...I thought I would share just a couple snaps because I just don't have the whole room decorated as of today.

This is a little closer view of the corner of my living room...


This gives you an idea of the room with the furniture. This is my new furniture..well..new from Craig's list...it was a real deal and a fun trip. It is a red checked with lots of soft wonderful pillow. I have a sofa and love seat but I am still looking for a chair to go with it.



I am hanging a quilt behind the sofa and then have to decorate the shelf...hopefully tomorrow that will be done too. Until then, be blessed

Love the red! I painted our bedroom yellow and have reservations as well. I haven't changed it, that's on the to-do list. I did see a shop that had painted the walls yellow and rubbed stain over them - really good look, just an FYI in case you decide to go back to yellow! Have you been there - Early American Home in Findlay? ~Ann

I like dark colours myself so the red does not shock me. Yellow is a very tiring colour. You get sick of it very quickly. I like it in sunflowers with a dark green background but don't give it to me "pure". Your house looks very comfy. ; )
