While Chris has been studying his tail off at school, Tif has been painting the house. She painted the hallway, office, bedroom laundry room, kitchen and living room. While it has been a lot of work, it is definitely beginning to feel a lot more like home.

Here are a few pictures to share.... Our bedroom, before the furniture...

Tif went back over the flat paint with a gloss in a stripe you can see the idea. It is the same color just with a clear gloss over the top.

This is the office...

Here is the kitchen/dining room. The entryway is a dark terracotta orange/red color. The living room walls are a pale yellow with a darker yellow/gold glaze rolled on and wiped off (It is a technique called mottling)

Above the kitchen cabinets is a red grenadine color. We put all of our honeymoon black and whites from Rome on top of the cabinets.

Just a quick update- we still have half of a garage full of boxes, so we will post more pictures as we put everything in its place.
