Patrick has been talking about how boring our living room is. He wanted to paint it. I was more interested in tackling other various house projects, but finally gave in. The only color we could agree on was brown. Dark brown. Like melt-in-your-mouth-chocolate brown. And that’s exactly what we got.

The kids were at my parents and our living room went from this…

To this…
It comes off a little dark, and not quite as warm as it is in person, but its seriously the color of a Hershey bar. Its Martha Stewart’s Molasses, but Behr paint. We used Martha’s paint in a few other rooms but weren’t very pleased. Sorry, Martha.
We both love  how rich it feels and doesn’t make the room dark at all. (The before picture was taken on a really sunny day. The after was taken on a somewhat overcast day.)

We have plans for fresh white crown moulding very soon. I’m also still trying to decided what to do about this big blank wall. (I’ve vetoed a picture frame collage.) I’ve got a few projects in mind, but haven’t decided on one yet. Any suggestions?
