Getting Our House In Order

My name is Meg and I live in Buffalo NY with my husband Andrew and our cat Jake.
We are working on getting our house in order by saving money, getting organized, and simplifying things.

Doing a little design on a dime

Our project this weekend it to paint the living room. It definitely needs some freshening up, and paint is an inexpensive way to get a big change.
The plan started as a simple paint job in the living room, but has now evolved.  The living room is getting new paint, crown moldings, and furniture is being rearranged (really pretty colors, nutmeg and spiced cider!!). We will also paint and do molding in the dining room. The plan is to go for a green shade, but we're still tossing that around.  That painting won't happen until next weekend at the earliest, so we have some time to deliberate.  Andrew also painted the bathroom ceiling and put up 2 new light fixtures, which are a nice change from the old "very brady" fixtures we have wanted to switch out since we moved here 11 years ago! :P It is amazing how small things like that get away from you...
Andrew starts his new job on March 15, so he has a few weeks to spend on this project.  I'm helping on the weekends! There is a lot of prep work, and he got a lot done during the week, so we're in good shape to have phase one done by tomorrow!
I'll post pictures when its done!
