Now, on to my house. (click to enlarge pictures)
This is one of the guest rooms. Here is the before picture (mainly a blank slate) I painted it pink in anticipation of little girls coming home! Although since painting it I've come up with a whole other decorating scheme. Good thing I like to paint!

This is the main guest room that gets the most use. Before:
After: All of the decals the previous owner had on the wall (they left them for us to remove!) left big spots in the drywall. So I painted stripes to help cover them up.
I love the paint color in the guest room. I wish I could remember the name of it!

Here is the master! Before: Another blank slate. I decided on a harlequin pattern for the focus wall. I wanted something interesting as we don't have a headboard. This wall is my favorite decorative thing about the room. The wall behind my bed is paint. I painted the diamond pattern using the 2 shades of lilac I used in the rest of the room. Then I painted a sheer blue glaze over it and topped it with a silver metallic glaze. Jon made me a diamond template out of cardboard. We learned a lesson though, we should have started in the middle! The diamonds on the far right are a little smushed into the corner. Oh well! My favorite thing thing in the room is our bed. So comfy.

This is the sitting area. We have a futon in the bay window. Good for reading.
The view from the corner toward the hall.
The view from the corner toward the bathroom. I love the double doors- the big set going to the hall, and the mini ones going to the bath.
