Yesterday I shared with you how we had tested four different types of gray paint (found on Pinterest) to use in the entry way, well before I get to the "reveal" let's just take a look at the hot mess we called our entryway/living room last fall...
YIKES! Let's break the above photo down...
- builder's grade orange doors and trim
- SIX different test colors on the living room wall
- a tall bookshelf that is half spray painted
- college dorm room lamp (did any one else have that one from BBB?)
- no installed lighting
If you want to see more of the chaos you can check it out on a blog I posted back in the mix of it! The pink of the walls shines through a lot more in those photos too... Lovely.
FORTUNATELY those spaces look a little different these days! It's taken a lot of time (minding a budget so doing things slowly) but the year was well worth the wait!
I kind of want to do something above the bookshelf or on top of it but not sure what... Maybe above the computer too or instead of? I asked hubs what he thought and he asked me why I feel the need to put stuff everywhere. Silly boy.
Hello install lighting! That was a BIG deal. I never thought I could get so giddy about lighting- what a difference it made!
See that basketball hoop? How could you not, right? Well we love it and Gabriel loves it but the next "project" is to somehow turn that corner into a kids corner. I want to get a little table and chairs and maybe some sort of plastic mat to catch messes and the works. We'll see. Any suggestions or ideas?
We also want to build some sort of surface area behind the sectional. a place to set a drink or put a lamp or something. Nothing super wide, just wide enough to be utilized.
