The magic of Paint

Nothing like a little paint and elbow grease to make a house feel like a home.

Again need accessories but a great start. I am not in love with the green. Was hoping for more khaki less green but it feels warm and looks great. Much much better than the dingy yellow/ivory/whatever color that was there before (you can see a glimpse of the color in the sunroom).
