|This picture was taken at the back entrance of the house. It really is about the only used entrance since no one comes to the front door .|
Actually, I have to be truthful, I do have some help. Check out all my wonderful help here: Granna's Little Helpers!http://gleaningsfromgail.blogspot.com/2010/10/grannas-little-helpers.html
This will be a kind of tour through the house. I have shown some of it on my side bar, but I would like to show a few more of the rooms. So here goes nothing!
On to some fun! The Playroom
This room, well, I guess it never did grow up, because it is still the same 1990's Hunter Green and it is where the grand kids play. This was Leah's room back in the "Hunter Green" days! Even though the room hasn't grown up, 2nd daughter Leah certainly has! On a rare occasion when it was half way clean, I got some good pictures. Here's a couple:
The boy, oldest grand child, is Leah' son. It seems like it should be my own children playing in this room, but instead it is my children's children! Time changes and so do paint colors! Well for some rooms anyway!
Down stairs in the Dining Room
This is probably one of my favorite paint colors in the house. It is actually a mixture of paints that my very smart husband mixed together from paints we already had. I told him what I wanted, a bluish, greenish, grayish color, and after some mixing and testing, he came up with the color I wanted. I still do not know how he did it. He really is so smart! It reminds you of the color of moss growing on trees. It goes with pretty much every color (and believe me I switch things around a lot), and it also changes colors in the room according to how the light is hitting it. I added some pictures of the family in here, because that is what really makes the Dining Room be a wonderful room - the gathering of family and friends!
I tried to do some updating on my own. You can see that at: http://gleaningsfromgail.blogspot.com/2010/10/ive-lost-it.html
Next is the Living Room or Family Room or Sitting Room, I'm not sure which to call it. I guess Family Room, since that is originally what it was supposed to be.
As you can see, this was in the fall season. That would be the only time I use orange. Then it will change to whatever colors are being used for Chirstmas, then to who knows, because I really don't, for January and the winter months, to something with lots of green for spring and summer. Told you I change a lot....with the seasons for real! That is why I like to use neutral paint for the most part (forget about the colorful rooms upstairs) especially for the main living area because it is so easy to change the accessories. It's a no-brainer!
Come on in and sit a spell! We'll talk about, for one thing, the piano on back wall. It's a long story!
There are more rooms, master bedroom and guest suite downstairs, but I don't have pictures of them right now, and feel like if this post was much longer, you would be ready to fall off your chair from boredom. So, another place (actually right here!), but definitely another time, we will finish this tour.
Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have enjoyed it. If so, please leave a note in the guest book. (That would be in the comment section!)
