We finished painting the living room. I wanted to try red and this is the one I like but some how I am not sure if it works. The other color was called potting soil and I may change it to that in a few months...after all it's only paint and those tiny little samples are not enoughtomake such a bold choice. The color is January Garnet
The color behind the sofa is cream but turned out more white than I wanted
More cream here and we still have a few pictures to hang
Because of the light from the window it looks darker than it really is.
This color was called caramel but turned out a little more gold than what I wanted once I hang the picture it will look better
With all the light in the living room the colors change through out the day
For those of you who saw the before photos you might be wondering what happened to those new cabinets she bought.. Here is one. I just didn't like the way they looked and am very happy with it here between the living room and kitchen. It will store some kitchen/dinning room linens. This picture will be hung higher and the three on the left will go on that small wall. We bought some blue paint for this wall but it needs a bit more thought before moving forward with another bold color... I am a little scared to try it and will think on it for awhile. The other curio was put in the guest room and we will see that later.
Thank You for visiting and have a Great Day!

We were at the mall with a couple of our grandchildren and found this Bunny
The Bunny doesn't talk so he was a little disappointed 
He knows the true meaning of Easter but this was a fun moment and they gave away Bunny ears

My cabinets arrived today. We needed more storage in the living room sooo..
Here is what we decided on after looking for months. The doors slide right and left.
DVD'S will be stored on the bottom where they won't show. They are called curio's. I call them closed bookshelves . We are considering getting rid of TV. There is very little that we watch and the price to have service is more than what we want to pay. We are buying DVDS and we have Netflix. We are downsizing many things so that we can retire in comfort. Hubby can purchase his sports for a much smaller fee. 
I wanted to store some books but I don't have many that look pretty. So I am not sure yet about those.
We hope to do some painting this week. Wait until you see the unexpected color. I am going bold.
I like things to match but am trying to step out  of the box with a couple of other choices. Our furniture is neutral so I will choose color for two of the walls. I still need to find something for above but will wait until the painting is finished. We will also hang the mirror at that time.
