Paint Again

We're going to paint again. I know I've said that a few times in the past, but this time we really are going to follow through with our plan. John reads so much that the books are overflowing the nooks and crannies of the house. So, we bought a nice set of bookshelves. We also bought ourselves some *etsy wall art as an anniversary gift to ourselves. We figured before we hang, and put together large pieces of furniture it would be a good idea to paint now so that we don't have to rehang and move everything.

The upstairs room is going to be sage green. Not that you can tell, but the pictures above were the inspiration. I also loved the simple decorating scheme of the middle three pictures. Top one is from a Pottery Barn catalog that mysteriously shows up in the mail each month. I'm not particularly found of their stuff in general, but liked the Ben Moore paint they used.

We loved the pictures we got, but they were printed on glossy paper. Yuck. Matte please, or at least luster.
