Two Days of Painting and Decorating!

 Well Dear Friends, I am so tired. For the last two days I have been working in my daughters' new home. She does not have a lot of furniture yet but she does have vaulted ceilings and it was a lot work trying to get them painted. So  this is the finished living room. She is going for a den/library looking room so this cabinet I had in my office but of course for our children we give everything so off to her home it went. She lives about 1hr and 15 min. from our home. It is probably difficult to see but inside the cabinet are some wonderfully charming things...but I forgot to get a close-up. The stand on the floor is upside down while the glue dries.
Please click on pictures for full view.



This is what it looked like when we got there. I had sent the ladder ahead but the walls were a light tan with a hint of yellow and I knew we would need to paint! At this point the cabinet looks pretty messy.
My sister-in-law went with me to paint and I could not have done it without her. We started in the bedroom. The taupe is the same color we used in the living room and the turquoise was just one wall behind the bed.



This is the other end of the living room and a new pair of curtains. We had time today to go to a thrift shop to see about a few more pieces of furniture but we didn't find what we were looking for so we will keep looking.
 We also organized her kitchen but of course I forgot to take pictures but all in all I thought we had a perfect couple of days and she seemed happy with the results.
  I am not home and resting because I am so tired!!! No crafting today..lol!
