Sweet Thank You and A New Wall Color

Friday was dark and cold winter day.  No sunshine Ugh!
 I heard Buddy barking at something outside the living room window.
Then the door bell rang.  A sweet delivery guy handed me this beautiful vase of flowers.
The combination of these flowers smelled amazing.  My whole house smells like a floral shop.  

The colors were so soft and pretty.  The attached card said "I wanted you to know I am thinking about you and hoping you begin to feel better soon".

They were sent to me by Diana from
 Nana Diana Takes A Break Blog.

Diana and I become friends years back in blog land and made a connection.   She and I are  now a wonderful friends.

Thanks Diana for always sharing your caring heart and gifting me with your friendship.  This was truly a wonderful surprise.

This is the current color of the walls in my living room and dining space.  I like the color but with the new direction I am going,  I felt  the color of the wall should be lighter in color.


My dining chairs are a light beige.

This is the fabric of my chairs up close.

This is the pottery barn swatch of the new sectional that is being made up.  It is more cream in color too.   I want to soften the wall color to blend with the new furniture.

I like the wall color of our bedroom.  More white with just a touch of gray.  As you can see on a gray winter day it is hard to capture a nice pretty picture to share.  The walls look more gray without good natural light but they really are more white with a touch of gray.


I had a full gallon of the Gallery White bedroom paint.  Yeah! Zero cost to paint the walls.

Here's the lid information for the Gallery White color of Behr paint in case any of you like this color too.

With all the snow we are getting this weekend we will be stuck at home.  Good opportunity to paint the walls!!

I will show you the difference the lighter color of paint will do for this room.

The Gallery White will be lighter and brighter and will pull my creams, grays and whites together nicely.

As soon as we get the walls painted and some of my decor back up on the walls,  I will show you how that is coming together in my next post.

Still trying to be patient while waiting for the new sectional to come in to complete the new spaces.

Have a great weekend.
Kris

  2. You are most welcome, Kris. People have NO IDEA how kind you have been to me over the years of friendship--nor what it means to me. You deserve every good thing that comes your way just because of YOU being YOU! Can't wait to see your walls painted and hope you have a pain-free day to do it (or make Terry do it for you). lol xo Diana

  10. What a sweet friend you have....the flowers are beautiful!!!!! I can't wait to see the lighter wall color. I have decided to go with a lighter color for my walls too. Like you we are having lots of cold and gray days with high winds. Looks like we will both be staying in and painting?!?
    Hope you are feeling better?

  12. Hi Kris pretty flowers and I imagine they smell wonderful. Love the soft colors too.

    I can absolutely see the difference in the paint.

    We are under a state of emergency for Sunday due to plummeting temperatures. Getting some snow and rain. Sunday night the state at least by us will be a sheet of ice.

    Snow we can deal ice a nightmare

    Stay warm

  20. Diana is a real gem, I know! I didn't know you were under the weather, hope you're doing better now. When we redid our living room and dining room I went with gray walls and white trim and have not regretted it once. Your home is looking amazing, as always. I'd be so excited for that sectional to arrive:) xo Kathleen

  28. Diana's flowers could not have been designed to be more perfect for you and that room. What an exquisite arrangement! I think I am catching a little of that sweet perfumed scent!

    I'll look forward to seeing this already beautiful room become even more so,

  29. Those flowers are so pretty... love the pinks of course! Roses have such a wonderful aroma.. especially "real" fresh ones right off of the rose bush! I'll be anxious to see your new paint color. I swear, you paint more often than I run my dishwasher! We've lived here over 3 years and have as yet to finish up the painting we started before we moved in! Neither of us are painters... we both hate it! My one bedroom wall still has blue on the bottom, where we "were" going to put white beadboard, but never did. The main bath is still a dull ugly white, that I want to paint light gray to match my other bathroom, and the 2 bedrooms are still the original colors! I wish I could be on one of those TV shows where someone comes in and redoes all the rooms, in about 1/2 hour! ha ha. I wish hubby and I were more handy with the "handiwork" that needs to be done around here. I would love to show this little house some love. Have a great Sunday! Marilyn
