Time to Paint! (and White Wednesday)

Well, I've been busy making plans for my house...
I have compiled a very long list
and hubby is not going to like it!

The first thing on my list is to paint the walls.
 We've been here for 3.5 years and I've ALWAYS hated the wall colors.
It's time...
Most of them are a pretty sage green
(pretty if it's in one room, not your entire house).

Also, if you've been following my blog for a while,
you may recall a post I did last year about the hideous stripes painted
 on the icky yellowish peach walls in the living room and dining room.
They have GOT to go!
(Who paints stripes and stops in the middle of the wall?)

I've found that I'm never completely satisfied with the
way my decorative attempts turn out
and now I realize why...
It's because the wall color is throwing off my desired look!

 Once the walls are painted,
the cabinets are next!
Ugly golden oak...good condition,
 just need to be painted or stained a darker color.
( I really want to paint them white and maybe add a glaze.)
Here's some photos of some of my decor for
