So it's done!
Thanks to my mother "making" me hire a painter
who got everything done while I was at work one day....
We have gone lighter.
I feel like I've gone blond..
but in a "goes with my coloring" sort of way.
I LOVE the lighter color of the living room.
I did have a OhMyGodThisIsOldLady moment,
but after the artwork went back on the walls I was all better.
Should have done this long ago.....
