Formal Living

Hubby was a trooper.  He taped up and painted this whole room by himself.  That was a lot of painting!  And multiple coats!  Not to mention the tedious task of the blue tape.  I was very thankful for everything that he did to the house while I was still living in Edmond.  I would get daily picture updates and enojoy getting to see our house transform from a blank palette into a thriving home.

Pardon the mess, but it's almost heard to believe that this is the same living room.  Everything in the house was white, white, white!  We needed some color in there ASAP.  The paint color is Pomegranate I believe, and it was a perfect match for our red barn paintings.  The paintings actually have a fun story behind them.  The first one shown in the corner with the table lamp (from Kirkland's, love that place) was from a place in Tulsa called Persimmon Hollow Village.  It's a neat place full of rustic buildings containing anything from woord working to Coca Cola memorbilia.  We got it for about $5!!  The 4 small ones, we found on one of our antique excursions somewhere in Oklahoma. They are all 5 painted on what looks to be linen, or a fine burlap, all bearing the same signature.  I call this my Christmas room because ofthe red and the snow pictures.  Decorating this house was just so much fun!!
