Home Improvement

Well, Sunday afternoon Mallory and I went to the Vesta Home Show. For those of you who don't know, it's where you get to tour 7 houses that have just been built/decorated...these homes have state-of-the-art everything...all the latest home gadgets/appliances/decor ideas.

We were so inspired when we came home to our somewhat aged house, we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon/evening painting our dark brick fireplace. I've always wanted to do it...our den is kind of cave-like due to the trees outside, but I think painting the fireplace is a huge improvement. Next up is the walls, as I've never cared for the dingy blah taupe that currently graces them...stay tuned! :-)

I don't know that I'd recommend it for you, but I love having a yellow living room. :)
