I haven't been posting as much because I have been doing. After being super inspired by the last house I posted I set out to make the house more "masculine," which to me means stacking books, simplifying the mantel and painting everything matte white. I painted the trim around the doors in the house (something that should have been done when I painted the walls but I guess I got lazy) as well as the wainscoting in the dining room and the non working fire place in the living room. I plan to steal this idea from Anna at doorsixteen. I'm so excited for an inexpensive fix for the old wall sconces.
