Painting the Library Inspi(red)

The lighting isn't great in these photos, but hopefully you can get the idea. I ordered this rug from rugsusa.com, and then matched up Benjamin Moore's Classic Burgundy and painted around the bookcases. I eventually want to get some better lighting in there so the color is highlighted more; it tends to look a bit dark. And this is just phase one of decorating the library--furniture and accessories will be later.

That rug really ties the room together.

That sounds like a cutline.

It looks beautiful! And I'm happy you're blogging again. I can only look at Katie's so many times.

I haven't had much to show. We're in the middle of about a half dozen projects. We'll have something new after each payday, ha.

Stephinbham, you haven't blogged since last Friday. I'm a stay-at-home mom who has little contact with the outside world. You've got to give me more than that.

It's from The Big Lebowski. :)
