What did we do in our master bedroom? First, I painted. Henry helped a little ;), but he did pick the fabulous paint color! He selected Warm Stone from Sherwin Williams. The next thing we knew, our furniture was moved in. Then, just last week, we took down the nasty old ceiling fan and replaced it with a new one (Henry's Christmas present)! We don't have curtains yet, but I'm thinking about getting these.
So, here we go with the before and after shots!
Yes, I am watching FRIENDS :)
And here's the new ceiling fan! It's the 52" Ashlar, Antique Silver Ceiling Fan from Quorum International.
So, what do you think?!

Our really exciting fun came when we all congregated in the living room for our Chinese Christmas gift exchange. Man, did we get rowdy, but it was all in good fun!
Ronnie was first to go. Everyone had to wear my Victoria's Secret Santa hat while it was their turn in the gift exchange.

This first picture looks at the dining room from the bay window at the front of the house.
I know this isn't a beautiful picture, but I added some sconces on the side of the window as well as hung a few other things in the dining room. I'm still working on more stuff in here, but I think the paint is the biggest thing.
So, what do you think? Come on out if you are lurking! We want to hear your thoughts :)

Anyhow, moving onto the Borchard Casa laundry room! While this is not the finished product, I'll show you the start to finish of what we did.
First off, this picture was taken before we closed. It shows damage on the back wall where the wall meets the floor. Henry removed the sheet rock along the wall, replaced it, taped, floated, re-textured, then I repainted the walls. You can't see the improved wall though because it's behind the washer and dryer.
This picture is of the opposite side of our laundry room. I don't have a NEW picture of this side of the laundry room, but this pic shows what the room basically looked like before. BLAH!
So what do you think?! I'm totally in love with this room now :)
