It's amazing what a difference a little paint makes.

We have been here just over 2 months now and we're still getting settled in. We moved into our current house about a month before we headed back to the States for furlough so we really didn't have time to settle in. So we've been busy trying to make this house feel like home.

Our living room was a very dark brown with dark brown windows and furniture. The color was a mistake so as soon as we got home we repainted.

I like the new turquoise color so much better. Okay so I super love turquoise and red so this is right up my alley. It's so much brighter too.

Then there was our basement room. For one thing Croats don't use the basement for anything more than storage so this was a very unloved room. The whole idea was to make it a sewing/guest room. Since we have guests (Missionary Danny Foss and his family from Serbia) the room is a guest room but as soon as they head back to Serbia all the sewing goods come in. It's gonna be good!

A little paint and some soft furnishings and it changes everything. I love the fact that this room gave me a whole 'nother reason to use turquoise and red!

What's awesome is that it's finished and ready to be used. Bring on the sewing!

  5. So... I guess I can come anytime and stay in the guest basement? :) I would so do that if I could!!!!

    The color in your living room is AWESOME! The lighter color makes the room look bigger too.
