Changing colors…

I paint the rooms in my house more often than most people. It’s a lot cheaper than moving! I’ve got painting down to a science and can usually prime and put a finish coat on any room in under 8 hours.

Last week I took one day and changed my dining room. It was burgundy and now it’s a teal/turquoise color. I love it! Luckily, Steve does too. You can see the portrait of Moses Carr on the far wall. He is my husband’s great-great-great grandfather. We rescued this painting from Steve’s grandmother’s barn many years ago and had it repaired and restored. I’ve never been sorry we spent that money.

We use my grandmother’s dresser as a buffet. Most of the rest of her bedroom furniture is in the attic. The painting over the buffet is by George Brinner, an artist on Maui. We have 3 of his paintings – I suppose we’re fans!

I would say your greatest BLESSING is the fact that you own your own place and can do that–some of us live in rented places and have to live with cream colored walls–boring, boring, boring–but I do add alot of pictures and hangings to mine, but it’s still cream walls??? Have fun–Just Di
