I started uncovering the window that had been sheetrocked over.
All sheetrock removed and ready for paint.
The wall above the mantle is now gray, a really pretty purpley gray called Battleship from Valspar. The ceiling, walls, trim, shelves and mantle are all getting a fresh coat of our trim color, basically a pale gray tinted white. I'm really happy with the colors and am about half way through painting the room. I can't wait to get it all put together.
