This is what a little bit of cleaning will do to improve a room!
Can you see the fire in the background? This was in December. No I am not crazy enough to have a fire now....
We painted the two front rooms a yummy brown color. Unfortunately none of the after photos show it off very well!
So far I love the color. Good news is, if or when I don't, it's only paint and I can change it, because it's my house!
