I'm not spoiled, just well loved! ♥

Remember the fireplace delemma I wrote about last week? I didn't like the brown, hubby (and daughter who always takes sides with hubby) LOVED the brown. Well, we met half way and here are some before and after shots:

Before:

During: ("Meow? A ladder? I MUST climb it!!!")

After: ~gasp~
I LOVE IT!

And, hubby likes it too -- says it makes the room look bigger. Daughter hasn't seen it yet...I wonder what she'll think...
.
And, I was right! I'm really happy with the gratitude banner now too. It was a subtle change, but I think it made a big difference.

Note to Connie: I need you to come visit me and help put a dark glaze on the brown that's left. I'm not crazy about the shade of brown, and I think a glaze would tone it down a bit and help bring out the texture. :o)

Have to say, I like the 1/2 & 1/2 compromise!! Love the brown but just having the bottom half is much more appealing. :)

And I love your Gratitude garland---very nicely done!
