Room of the Living (aka Living Room)

Remember just a few short weeks ago when the living room looked so "beautiful":

Wow... that's a lot of carpet. Who wouldn't wanna just curl up and hang out in there?

THEN we ripped out the carpet and were OVERJOYED by the truly beautiful hardwoods!!!

Well, my friends, it has now officially been painted!! (Of course I stood by the lamp that makes the room look like an orange creamsicle, but...) It's a really pretty tan-ish, orange-ish, suede-looking, ever changing color called "Pumpkin Butter". And once this room actually gets furniture, curtains, art, better lighting, and clean floors, YOU WILL BE AMAZED. No, really. You will. Come see it.

Oh no!! Don't hurt Emily!!! She's our friend!!!
  • This weekend was incredible. We have the most wonderful friends. On Saturday we decided to go ahead and prime/paint the kitchen paneling, which ended up being a bigger undertaking than we expected. LUCKILY, Becca was planning to come help at some point and she brought Keith along (Kate was also a big helper - she's great with a paint roller). Then Emily and David came too! So all 6 of us (and Jason's mom too!!) primed and painted the first coat, finally covering the "gorgeous" wood paneling. (Pictures of the kitchen to follow tomorrow!) We would have gone CRAZY trying to paint the whole room by ourselves... they saved the day!
  • Then Sunday after church, AT came by to help paint the living room! So AT, Jason, J's mom, and I painted and painted and painted all day. (If I don't have to paint trim again EVER, I will be a happy girl.) Then at like 7 o'clock I wimped out and said PEACE - I'm going home. (Well, I went grocery shopping and THEN home... details.) Luckily, AT stayed and they really got just about everything done.



  1. YAY! I love it! What a beautiful color!! I wish I could help you guys, but it will be fun to see how much has taken place in my absence the next time I come to chattanooga!

  2. I'm glad you went with the "pumpkin butter" paint :) I can't wait to see what all of the other rooms look like once they're painted (I know you're looking forward to that task!! ha!) and would LOVE to help whenever I'm up in Chattanooga again! Seriously, let me know!


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
