Thank You!

I think the cream turned out great. I did add a little brown glaze on them to soften them up a bit. Now when you walk in you notice them instead of not really seeing them like before. Thanks for the advice! I am going to finish decorating for Christmas this weekend and start showing some pictures next week. I'm excited! Have a good weekend!

That looks really good... the cream jumps out at you. The green almost blended in with the brown wall and the cream makes it look so much more noticeable.

Hi Shannon...they look lovely. I had a question for you. Did you make your drapes, or did you purchase them? I'm looking for some in that exact fabric to go in my living room and library (I have walls that exact color of brown in my library and the drapes look just as fabulous as I imagined they would. Do you mind emailing me? shabbynest (at) yahoo (dot) com.
thanks!!! Wendy

Hi Shannon! Girl, you're so lucky that it doesn't snow where you are...well, at least not like the crazy snow we've been having here lately. They are calling for another 8-10 inches tonight! Seriously dampening my plans to go shopping at Target!! Can't wait to see your Christmas decorations! I'm hoping to put things up next weekend. I want to finish painting my den area first. I haven't seen The Holiday. I'll have to check that one out!
