Love me some paint!

It has been 2 1/2 years since moving back into our home after a major remodel.  During this remodel, the stairs were moved out of the laundry area, we created what is someday going to be a 3/4 bath but currently a storage area, and the old (lead based painted) walls were covered up w/ drywall.  And there it sat...

Painting this room was on my summer project list, but as we were going into August, I had little hope of it actually being accomplished.  That is until.... my folks rolled into town!!!  Bill loves a good project and when he asked if there was anything he could help us with... well, let's just say I didn't let Brian talk first!!! =)

There was a lot of touch up, retexturing, priming, and painting... and it turned out great!!!  You can see my laundry room through a french door in my kitchen, which is painted a deep red color, so I wanted something that would flow with that.  Also, there is a lot of natural light in that room, and not tons of wall space, so I knew it could handle something a little more dramatic.  Bill said he doesn't ever want to eat chocolate again... but I've been dreaming of trying that color in there and I'm absolutely thrilled with the results!!! 

(I took these pictures at night with my phone... so it looks even better in the daytime and not on a phone snapshot!)
I still have some decorating to do, and pinterest has loaded me with inspiration.  Thank you so much, Dad2, for all your help and constant determination to help us get our house 'done'!!!  We love you!!!
