It's a very gloomy day so the lighting isn't the best.
I still need to do a little more tweaking, but you can get the gist of it.

I asked my sweet hubs for an honest thumbs up or thumbs down.
I got a happy thumbs up! Woo-hoo!
(Heck, I knew I would!)

He even admitted the room looks much bigger now.
Tsk. Tsk. He should never doubt his wife.

Man, I worked up a sweat wrestling and hanging my Betsy Ross Flag fire board into place! Those pieces weigh a ton!
I should have used a double layer of Degree.

But she really pops now, doesn't she?

You can see everything in the room with your new color and it does look bigger!

Another GREAT job!

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. ♥
I cannot believe how much bigger it looks. I've always known lighter walls make a room appear bigger. But until I actually did it, I had no idea how it truly does!
I still love the Graham Cracker Crust color I had on the walls. But with only two windows, it made the room too dark.
Thanks again!!

Hmmm... I wonder what I'll paint next??!!
