Painting @cabin finished!!

So yesterday...we got to go back up to the cabin and put it back together since it was done getting painted. I was so excited to put all my slipcovers back on and Heber was going to finish up getting the trim on the windows and baseboards back up. We also got two more sets of curtains hung in the family room.

I love the paint on the walls!!! We left the ceiling and trim and doors and baseboards dark wood, and I am so glad I chose this option I love it. It helps it feel a little more cabiny than cottage with the wood paneling on the ceiling. You know it's all about comprimise, I have a turquoise sectional and flowered pillows up there, I gotta give the man something.

So you know how men don't get as excited as us women when it comes to before and afters...when I asked Heber if he thought it looked good, all I got was "It's fine, I didn't really think it need to be painted in the first place...and now it smells different when you walk in" HMMM maybe it smells like fresh paint and not rustic wood smell. Which is starting to come back since he cut a ton of new wood for the fireplace. I have to admit I loved that rustic smell too when I walked in. I love that man for doing all that work for me, when he didn't really think it needed to be done.
