Weekend Paint Job



Last year my mom painted her living room butter yellow.  It was a fine color, but I could tell she wasn't completely happy with it.  She also had a gorgeous wood side board that she wanted to paint.  She was feeling a little weird about painting a wood antique, especailly one that she's had in her home since 1992.  But this week, she took the jump and started painting.  Here are the results!








I love it.  I think it suits her style so much more.  It also makes all of the furniture and art pop and look more cohesive.  The color is called Olive Sprig.  I'm not sure which manufacturer.  I'll have to ask her.  Here are some more photos for good measure:







Great job, Mama!  
I love it and can't wait to see it in person!

You're right, I think the green is so nice. It's cozy yet makes a statement about her style. I would be nervous painting that too but it looks great!

So pretty..I agree, the green is much nicer looking. It feels so cozy, the perfect living room for being cozy with a book:)
