Paint, Paint and more Paint!

John and I decided to take advantage of the $5.00 rebate that Valspar was offering.  We went to Lowe's and bought 2 gallons of paint for the walls of the 2 front halls, hall going to the garage, the living room, eating area and kitchen.  We bought a quart of paint that was 2 shades darker for the fireplace wall.  Here is the fireplace area before it was painted:

I think it looks awesome!  Tomorrow I will take more pictures. With daylight I think the room will look so great!

Sherri-What a nice soft color. I love it and think it looks perfect with your white fireplace. It really makes the mantle pop out nicely- xo Diana

Lovely paint choice, Sherri. That Caprese salad looks delicious - one of my favorite summer salads.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
