A Coat of Paint Does a World of Good

I've been wanting to paint our front entrance hall for months, perhaps years. It originally had a coat of beige flat paint. If you know paint you know flat paint is impossible to clean. With 4 kids and 2 dogs the walls needed to be cleaned. Paint was the only answer. This past weekend I did it and I love it. I re-arranged some nick-nacks, re-positioned photos and now I sit back on the couch and gaze at my handiwork with pride. I love it!
the front entrance, one wall is milk and coffee tan and the other, burnt red
family pictures rearranged
repositioned and rearranged the shelves
Cead Mille Failte, a thousand greetings, in Irish
Ian's shelf re-used, showing off the red
a view from the couch, love it!

I love your color sense! Have a kitchen/dining room that either needs paint or dynamite thinking you have the better idea!
