We still have a lot to do, but we have finished the painting in the living room and hallway. We decided to use Glidden's Water Chestnut on the walls and white on the trim, ceiling, doors and baseboards. It's not a dramatic change, but I think it makes the room look much warmer. Here are the before pictures.
Keep in mind that we are going to remove some more furniture, add new pillows, and put some new things on the wall, but here is the finished product. I don't have the decorating gene so I'm nervous about putting these pictures up, but I'm proud of what we've done so far.
