So…let’s do a bit of a recap on that last post. Remember the streaky brown room? We used the Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer to make orange walls, but then decided on the color SW 7070 Gray Screen in SuperPaint.
Well…feast your eyes on the new room. Oh boy. It’s light and bright and BEAUTIFUL. I’m loving it.
For this to give a more open room, we had to play around with the furniture…so I first started by moving the future around. I was not happy with the setup before we started this room makeover. I knew there was a better way to have the furniture in the room. I moved the TV and couch on every wall until I found the perfect setup. By putting the TV in the corner and the couch on the opposite wall I felt like the room double in size. It totally did….
Remember the ghost frame picture? (see to the left of the curtains). That is what we termed this picture. We’ve shown a picture of the brown wall…we will show you the other wall in just a bit. But the room is open and wide now and
…wait…did we mention bright!?!
Wanna know a secret? Do you see that clock? I got it at a craft store and guess what color it was?? Brown. I went ahead and bought spray paint while in the paint aisle to add a bit of pizzazz. I like it.
After wall…be still my heart. Okay so wait…let’s back up a bit. Once I got the furniture in the right place, I started buying accessories. I bought my gray pillows and lamp at the local Gornmans store. I searched for drapes with the perfect pattern and found them online at Overstock. I also had the mirror above the couch just sitting in a closet. It was just like finding a $5 bill in your coat pocket! Wahoo. It too was also a brown color, so I though why not paint it? I bought the frames next to the mirror at the craft store.
So here is the ghost wall again…and are you ready for the “after”?
Oh lovely, lovely, lovely day. Yes…the ghost has gone and angels have arrived. It’s so airy and light.
So after that room was done we had a bit of paint left over…we rolled it on in to the dining room.
I didn’t have time to decorate it, but you can see the difference. That paint makes it look amazing! Thanks Sherwin-Williams. I’m loving this make over!!
