Living Room Accent Wall...DONE!

So I finally buckled down yesterday and got the job done.  The most tedious portion of the painting had me wanting to put it off, but once I got started it wasn't too awful bad.

I went with Sherwin Williams' "Griffin" (as seen in the dining room) for the accent wall since the dining room and living room are very open and seamless, and introducing another paint color seemed like a bit much.  I'm sure somewhere along the way when choosing the color for the dining room it must have occurred to me that this browny-gray color is also found in our kitchen granite and in the specks in our fireplace tile surround (thus also making it a great color for the living room), but if not, it was a very happy accident!

Here is the big picture...

Another angle...

Close-up of the fireplace with the new wall color.  Yep, stole the artwork from above the black piece in the foyer.  Might be a permanent change--me likey.

Another shot...

And the miniature hallway that was not so fun to paint (yes, this would be the previously mentioned "tedious portion").  I had to cut in around a smoke detector, doorbell box, and ADT box.  Not to mention, I had tight corners to work in and had to paint that little bit of "ceiling" above my head (awkward!).  But all is well that ends well!

And a shot of the old wall as a reminder...


Much better!
