Living room makeover

I spent the last week painting my living room , kitchen and dinning room.  these first two pictures are the before walls.  I am sorry I didnt take a picture until I had started taping the walls, but you get the idea.

 The tile is white and the walls were very light but not quite white.

 My husband said not to dark so I picked this color from Lowes.  It is a leather color.  I tured out so cool.
 The hardest part so far has been around the windows.
 The look now of the room has been described as warm and inviting.  I am so pleased with the end result.

I must admit I am not the best painter.  I have made mistakes.  But I did it all by my self.  I am still painting my staircase.  I need a ladder.  I cant reach all the way to the top.  But I am so happy.  We also got a light tan rug and a brand new screen door this week.  I helped my husband do the door and it was a bear.  But it also looks beautiful.

  This picture was taken before it was done.  It was dark by the time it was done and I just was too lazy to take another picture.
