A few weekends ago I got a wild hair (for you, Sam) and painted some of the gawdawful paneling on the 2nd floor. I started small and completed the little hallway area first. The paint's color is "Lyrical Yellow." Mike and I liked it because it was a creamy color with just a hint of yellow to brighten up the spot. We may use it in the TV room upstairs as well and use a complementing sand-ish color for the stairwell you see in the background of this picture.
We still aren't sure if we're going to paint the ceiling. I have a nice print of Goebel's Mountaineer Field to frame and hang on the wall. We would like to put a small console table in this space, too. When all the paneling is painted it is going to be such a big difference up there. The space already seems brighter, cheerier and bigger with this little bit painted.
