Living Room Accent Wall: Summer Project #1

We have been busy bees around this joint.  A recent project (we'll call it Summer Project #1, although it was the most recent) was painting the back wall of our living room the same color as the top of the dining room to tie things together and give our living area some much-needed character.
Here's before, this past Christmas, greeting cards, crooked photograph, massive toy haul, and all...

And here are the after shots!  I surprised Jon by painting it four evenings ago when he had Andrew in Charlotte at a drum corps show.  I waited until Ethan was in bed (duh) to start and it only took a couple of hours.

We definitely like the "feel" of the room a lot more now, and it was a super easy change to make.
