Finished...for Now

from the dining room to the living room

from the living room to the dining room

Verne finished the painting, and I finished the trimming. I also finally got everything back in order. I'm so glad, as I don't do well with a mess. It really dampens my moods.

And I'm happy to report that I 'm pleased with all of the final colors. The living room and the kitchen are no longer competing.

When Verne started painting the kitchen with the Restoration Ivory, I became a little blue. I loved my cheery yellow kitchen and was sad to see it go. Especially when I saw it the next morning. But now, I like the new color. It changes hue during the day. Sometimes it looks ivory. Sometimes a very pale green, and sometimes a very pale yellow. Any of those colors work in there, and it's quite nice.

I'll give Verne a little break and then our bedroom needs a fresh coat of paint, too.

Thanks for the sweet comment Tracy!
It's a huge day of celebration~it hasn't been an easy road for Josh~at all!

This is so funny {ok not funny funny but ironic funny} I have similar shades picked out for my house!

Wishing you a very blessed weekend!Ü

It looks great! That white raisin color looks yellow to me! I do like your ivory color as well. I think it is a perfect transition color between your living room and dining room!

Beautiful paint job, Tracy. Love the colors and how you have your home put together. So welcoming. Your burgandy couch looks so inviting and pretty next to the yellow wall.

So, when Verne is done at your house, will he come to mine? I would love to hire him to paint over my green room. ;) I love the colors you picked. They look so beautiful!

PS--I got your package out today!

Very Beautiful, Tracy. Both you and Verne did a wonderful job and I love the color choices. I'm like you, I can't stand messes either and am not happy until every thing is in its place and order has come back into my life! Thanks for sharing!
