You all know how it goes….you make something in a room look sooooo much better…
Other things in that room that haven’t been touched in 7 years…start to bother you ….endless cycle…
So we ( and by we–I really mean ME)—we started to think of some ways to update this space.
over the red….loved it 7 years ago….

I started seeing things “lightened” up a bit….
I saw this on  Centsational Girl….and I sort of fell-in-LOOVEEE…..

The look is so timeless, classic and simple—and really goes perfectly with our colonial house. I love it! Also, the beautiful white against the creamy walls—just lovely. And it is handy–with those stylish hooks–love it! Did I mention that I LOVE IT….
So guess what we did this past weekend???
Hmmmm…what paint should I choose…such possibility!
Really loving Light french gray so far….

My honey…getting started on the trim….he loves a good project like this. Instant gratification!
Will be showing our progress soon…..
Oh…and I found a new light….
So excited :)

Be Inspired to be Clever ;)
