Well, I think my husband and I decided on Water Chestnut for the walls (see previous post), and ivory or white for the ceiling and trim.
Here are the before pictures of our living/dining room. It looks cluttered because there's a lot of furniture, but I think we'll be moving at least one piece out. We'll also be decluttering the walls. The cat trees are an eyesore, I know, but my three cats love them and can sit on them and look out the large window. So they stay, unfortunately.
I hate the low ceilings, but hopefully painting the walls a darker color and leaving the ceiling white will add the illusion of height.
We'll be starting the painting on Friday, and I'll post "After" pictures! I'm so excited....!
