Here are a few "befores"
See how that paint color just sucks up all my light? That really started getting to me. It was time to hit the road, ugly brown!
I'm so excited to show you the "after"!
I wanted to add a different and darker color behind the TV. The wall space is asymmetrical and I thought painting a dark color might help to disguise it.
Here's a reminder of how it looked before...
...a little more progress with the bookshelves added.
(sorry for the crappy iphone photo!)
The color I chose is by Valspar...I'll need to update with the actual color! It's a great inky green and almost black when it's dark out. It's safe to say, I'm obsessed with it!
(Ah! SO washed out. And what is up with the weird glare on the tv!? I apologize. I'll keep them up under the guise of trying to keep it real? Is it working?)
I also added an Instagram wall! More on that later.
Big improvement?! I'd say so!
Isn't it amazing what a little paint can do? It feels like a different house to me. I love that the grey is so light and bright. My living room gets a TON of natural light and the room glows when the sun shines in now.
Next up: Painting the "entertainment center" white, a DIY cornice board, and hanging some crisp white curtains! Can't wait!
