Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Painting the Living Room

 
A couple of weeks ago our daughter #1 and her family came for a visit.  Her husband just so happens to be an ex-professional house painter and works for Sherwin Williams part time while he's going to school.
 
He decided that while he was here he'd paint our living room.
 
I said, well, thank you so much, but I have no idea what color to paint the living room.  (I've been trying to find the right color for more than a year.)
 
He said he thought he'd found the perfect color.
 




It's called Tidewater.
 
A nice light robin's egg blue.

the pictures don't quite show how pretty it is
 
It's really pretty!



 I think he was right!
 
Thank You Chason!

I Love It!!
 
Still looking for the perfect rug.
 
Stay tuned.

I only have three things to say. One is I love the new color, two I am jealous he painted it, and three I want that beautiful chair.

Your daughter sure knows how to pick a guy! He chose the color AND did the work?! He's a keeper, it looks beautiful :>)

I love that color....You are not going to believe this, but tomorrow at 2pm a Sherwin Williams color consultant is coming to my home to help me pick the perfect blue for my bedroom! If you purchase a $75 gift card you get a free consult....What a great deal! Won't it be funny if it is this blue! When I finally get it done I will post about it and share the color
