Adventures in painting

This is what our living room looks like while we paint the dining room. Cute, huh!

I've been sitting on a paint color for several weeks that I have loved, but wasn't for sure which room to use it in. So, the dining room is currently being painted Behr's asparagus green! It's a really nice color that goes with my red/creamy lime/black decor. I'm excited (and nervous) to see how it turns out!

Yesterday I picked up an old dresser from my sister-in-law (thanks, Mandy!!). It was painted a magenta type color and I painted it red (leftover kitchen paint). I had the perfect wall in my living room that has needed a weightier piece, so this is perfect! I topped it off with a lamp that I painted black. It was previously a mint green color. So, that wall is now complete. Thankfully, it looks better in person!

Dining room after pictures will be coming soon (tomorrow at the earliest!)

The color is awesome! I love it and can't wait to see the finished room! All I could think when I saw the first picture (what your living room looks like while you paint) is that it's a good thing you are doing this before M is crawling! :)
