Chocolate Agony

Did you ever think you would see me write about Chocolate & Agony together? Our living room renovation gave me weeks of agony. I could NOT decide on a color for the walls. I wanted brown as in chocolate, but couldn’t find the shade I liked, didn’t know if I would even like brown walls, wondered if our style of home was right for brown walls, just to name a FEW of my worries. I had Dayle come over, she has similar tastes as mine, and got her opinion, and I never ask opinions when it comes to my home decorating. Mick told me he would repaint over the brown if I didn’t like it, he just wanted the project done! So, I finally choose a color and he painted. It was late last night when he got the first coat on & I loved it. When I woke up this morning & saw it in the daylight, I still loved it.

Mick thinks it looks like the color of a B-17. I think it looks like the inside of a chocolate truffle.

I always liked how the fireplace came out but the color of the walls really show off the brick. Surprising, the wall color gives the room a very calming feel. This would be a great color for a bedroom. Next is the painting of the built-in, installing new outlets & dimmers and the room is complete. Well, I may have to do some shopping to complete the decorating. Although, Mick is convinced there is what ever I need being stored in the basement.

Dining Room.
Stripping wallpaper then painting the walls.
Ripping out the built-in.
Should be a quick project, Ha Ha.

Very nice! I can't wait to see the entire room. I am looking forward to the day when I can put paint on the walls. I am pretty sick of beige walls, beige carpet, white ceilings and no crown molding. :)

It's not exactly a B-17 color, but it's no where near chocolate. I am a chocolate expert, after all. Maybe coffee with a lot of cream. Whatever you call it, I'm sure it looks perfect. I will not commit without seeing a wider angle view!

Hey, Leigh, when do we get your password?

I have been told that our house is the color of chocolate milk and our house trim the color of dark chocolate.

I like it! However, to get the best possible match, you might consider the color of birch bark. :-)

Are you talking about for our wedding web page? Next week! Once we have everything on the page complete we will make it so that you don't need a password. We wanted it to be up and running first.
