Soaring to New Heights - The Story of a Paint Job

 Hello World!  Since I'm busy trying to get the kitchen cabinets finished, this post will probably be a little short.  Ha!  We'll see.  Several of my lovely friends wanted to know what the Shabby Chic by Benjamin Moore looked like in the family room and entry way.  

Here are a few pictures with the ever wonderful builder's beige on the wall.  (Please read that dripping with sarcasm).
I guess you figured out, I always forget to take before pictures.  Focus on the walls and the entertainment center.

Here is the family room and entry way with Shabby Chic by Benjamin Moore. 
We pretend it is a little Italian villa.  Very pretty, but horrible for sound control.  

 See how open it is?  It's open on both sides.

 Definitely need to get some huge artwork to go above the fireplace. 

Notice the entertainment center?  I designed the piece and had it custom made.  Just waiting on the cabinet doors and drawer faces.  The drawers hold all of our dvd's.  When it is all finished, everything will be nicely tucked away. 

 Thank God for my husband, who did the finish work by the ceiling on this paint job. 

 Love these chairs!  They are extemely comfortable.  They will be getting a new facelift and will be making their appearance in another room.

We really like the color and I can't wait to get new furniture and get curtains made.  So much to do!  Hope you enjoyed looking at our massive walls!  Have a wonderful day and remember to be kind to one another!
