    Some recent pictures of fresh painted rooms- Frugal living!

    Post by Susan on Thu Feb 05, 2009 7:09 pm

    This is our hallway, and bookcase that I pained with left over paint this winter.
    This is our bathroom. It is also painted with left over paints, and is a two tone blue. Yes, I painted the window...it will be removed, when we renovate the bathroom. That is further down the road. We are going to take out the window, and put in shelves. Behind that window, is an addition onto the back of our house. The two blues are the one used in the hallway and a lighter blue..the effect is very calming.

    Our neighbor had painted her bedroom with theses colors, and graciously gave us the rest of the paint. We really enjoy the new colors. The house used to have all grey walls! Now it is bright and inviting!

    This is paint that I mixed, using some left over blue and greens. I was hoping for an aqua color, but that isn't what I got. It is still a pretty green...and this is my puter room color! We haven't finished with this room yet.
