Because Superman Can't Wait!

So, we've been working on a few projects since Superman came home for Christmas break.  Since his return to work, he's been clamouring for pictures of our progress.  While we're not completely finished, I can't make him wait any longer.

Today's pre-reveal is the transformation of the room formerly known as the "Macaroni & Cheese" room.  Now that the kids are older, we don't need a "kid" room anymore, so Superman and I picked out a new "grown-up" wall color. 

To remind you, here is the before:

Bye-Bye, Macaroni & Cheese!
And here is the after:

Hello, Celery Sprig!
The view from the other side of the room...this is where I do all my sewing
and crafting and blogging...notice the bright white ceiling...it looks fabulous.

This is where the kids sit to watch television.

I still need to cover the ironing board in new fabric and we still need our new baseboards, but doesn't it look fabulous?   It is a much more relaxed space, that I, for one, am really enjoying.  I am so pleased with how it is coming along. 
Did you notice that we only changed paint?  Isn't it amazing how much of a difference a new wall color and freshened ceilings can make?

So, Superman, are you pleased?  Doesn't it look good?  Thanks for supporting my desire to change up this space.

OMG! That is fantastic. It came out even better than I imagined it would. Are you still thinking about adding colored backings to the shelves?

It makes it a lot bigger looking. I love it! (But I have beige yellow walls, only because Neal wouldn't let me paint them white so my opinion doesn't count.)

I think it looks much bigger, too. Interestingly, when we lived in So Cal, our walls were all white. I'm convinced it is the quality of the sunshine, but I could be completely.
