The home inspection was yesterday so I took some pictures of the house :)

First is the living room, I didn't get a close up of the paint, but it's a pretty cool technique, looks like they used rags. I just don't like the colors or that they put it on every single wall! (also, the paint is really darker in person, so keep that in mind).

The sideways laundry room and half bath :)

The hallway leading to the other bathroom and the bedrooms, more paint, oh and you can see it a little closer on the left.

L's future room, I took pictures of all the walls but figured you got the gist of it here ;). Yes, it does cover the whole ceiling too.

Master bedroom, same paint texture technique as the living room, just in blues. (This paint is also darker in person). A pretty good sized room though, they have a lot of furniture in there so I just showed the one corner.
The boys bedroom, I'm thinking of leaving one wall this color and painting the other three, or maybe leaving the bottom half of the wall this color, not sure yet. Any ideas?

I am so excited for you guys! Congratulations!

I don't think I have any good advice, though, except to paint over any and all murals and techniques. I don't like techniques, but hey, if you like it, keep some of it I'd also look around on websites for paint tricks to make rooms look taller and bigger and use that on your living room.

Did I miss a picture of the kitchen?

Thanks Kermit :). I don't like techniques really either :)

I was a dork and didn't take any pictures of the kitchen, they used to be on the MLS listing but it is gone now. I don't know what I was thinking :P.

If we go back soon I'll get some of the kitchen. I like the kitchen color but it has the wallpaper border of sunflowers along the ceiling line and randomly under cabinets, those will be going too, lol.

How exciting! I'm not a fan of "techniques" either, but the blue in the boys' room is nice. The layout looks great, too. When does escrow close?

Not until August 10th, so we have awhile to go :S. I guess it's good because I have to pack still, lol.

Wow Meadow! One day we will be buying a house too. That day should be in about 3 1/2 yrs. Once you know who retires. I dont mind a technique as long as its done in a color I like and is done right. If those are darker than they appear that is not going to work. The mural one for L's room though there is a special paint you can paint over it that will make it where you only have to do one coat to cover that ... I will have to ask my SIL what it is though. Her hubby used to be in the painting stuff for extra cash. She told me about it a long long time ago but I forgot what it is called.
