first completed home project...

... in the quest to get our house ready to put it on the market, we took a look around and decided that some things needed to be done. some rooms just needed a simple de-cluttering, and others were going to need a little bit more.

we've finished our first projec
t: repainting the master bedroom

and well, with new paint came new bed linens. and then we needed new artwork on the walls...

with that said, we're pretty happy with how it's turned out. the wall color is a lot more neutral (while the bedding is not; but i'm in love with the bedding). we took an art gallery approach to hanging artwork. (the artwork is framed prints that jeremy and i took, and one special one from my great friend, tom – thanks again!)

thoughts? anything constructive is nice... and we thought about hanging something over the bed, but really couldn't find any frames we liked, and the original piece of artwork no longer worked in there – no worries, it's moving to the nursery. (btw, jeremy did the artwork that was hanging above our bed – if anyone is interested, he does a great job at a decent price. hmmm, a new blog post at some point, perhaps?)

ok, on with the show... here's our before and after:

Nice "staging" work, y'all! We just re-painted our entire new home and lightened every room's weight with brighter colors. It really has a big-time effect in the end.

Oh, and very cool on the photo there! ;)
