Here are the still images from video I took of the living and dining rooms. You may not notice a drastic change looking at the pictures. But do you notice the difference in my mantle area? I still don't like the bricks painted brown. I think it needs to be stuccoed over and then painted. The bricks still look like fake chocolate to me. Kind of odd. But you know how these things are... once they've been there a while, you sort of quit noticing them anymore. That's why it would be in my best interest to get on with it before too long. After all, that old wallpaper and chair rail that Casey and I took down are a prime example of that. Do you even remember what it used to look like? Shoot! I should find some old "before" pictures so you can see the difference. Okay, that'll be next on the list, that and posting some images from Cally's surprise 17th birthday party. It was great! We had about 45 people, mostly high school seniors and college age kids with a little variation here and there. Lots of eating and playing volleyball, football and ultimate frisbee! And a lot of jumping in the pool to cool off. The temperature was seriously hard on everyone.
Here's the living room. Oh, I guess you can't even see the wall that we took the wallpaper and chair rail off of. What a lame videographer! Wait, no... the whole mantle wall had wallpaper and chair rail going across it. What am I thinking? I guess, even I have forgotten what it looked like.

Here are the shelves. I painted them the same color as the walls. They used to be all white.
