Office after

If you know me on Facebook, you already know that I painted the brown in one day and started the trim. Then the snow/sleet started falling and school was cancelled for two days and the trim took me forever. You simply can NOT paint with kids at home. Every time I climbed up the ladder World War 3 would ensue and it was just completely pointless.
Landon said he wanted it "dark" and "cavelike", so here we are. This paint was leftover from the stairs last year, and the trim color is leftover from the mudroom. I planned on painting one wall to prove a point (it is too dark) and fell in love with it. Thinking of doing it in the playroom also.
These shelves are the only new thing in the room right now. I have some more organizers, but am waiting to see where I want to hang pictures and such first. I like to hang out in a room for a few weeks, before I start putting holes in the walls. The plastic has been on those french doors since I was pregnant with the buddies! Can't believe I waited that long to poly them. Feels great in here. We even do homework in this room now. So cozy, and the kids don't have to move their stuff off of the kitchen table for supper time. I have some antique radios upstairs. Do you think they would look good on top of the shelves?

Love it! That's a similar brown to one of my newly painted bathrooms. It is such a nice color.
