The Living Room

After my fun adventure along Highway 36, I came home with some real treasures. I was so excited to start decorating, especially after finishing up the gorgeous paint in my living room. Below is the picture I am most excited about. I painted all the frames so they matched, except one which is gold. I framed scrapbook pages, one old door lock, and in the middle frame I hung the gold M that was our wedding topper. And this picture honestly doesn't even do it justice.

Also notice that Mark and I made those spindles disappear. You see, there were spindles here separating the living room and dining room, they matched those that we also removed from the bathroom and the ones that I have yet to figure out what to do with in the kitchen (I still need your opinions!) We got the sawzall out, and he even let me have a turn! -Obviously this picture was taken before this weekend, as it still has the hideous blue gingham wallpaper and sunflower border that was the "Before" shot of my kitchen.

I love it! Now I actually am starting to feel like I've put my own stamp on this place.

Are the spindles in the kitchen load bearing? If not, you could just take them out. Or leave them and paint all the cabinets white. I kind of think the spindles would look cute and "whimsical" if they were white. Love the color of the living room, and your frames look great. I was up on HWY 36 that weekend (P-Burg!) but my family wouldn't stop at any of the sales!

Well-I'm not sure if they're load bearing. But I think I may replace them with black wrought iron spindles. But!! You are right, at some point I want to paint the cabinets all white-I just think that'll be further down the road when we do a BIG revamp in the kitchen.

And who are you anonymous?
