If you remember, I was having a really hard time deciding paint color for the living room. Then after a late night Pinterest binge I decided to go with my gut and I'm so glad I did because I am LOVING the color!
Here are a few before photos...
So when we first moved in this wall was a terrible tan. It also had a pretty ugly security system monitor right when you walked in. After removing it (because we went with a different system) we patched up the hole it left with a wall patch kit from a home improvement store.
Here's a look at the house (clearly with Christmas decorations)
As you can tell there is no overhead light so I have to be creative and move around lamps for the time being.
Here are all the paint colors that we were deciding on. We ended up picking Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.
After just one coat we were beginning to tell a MAJOR difference!
We painted two coats just to make sure we covered all of the ugly tan. I also fund some light silvery/whiteish curtains from Home Goods. Right now I'm light on the art and photos on the wall but all in good time.
I LOVE the Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. It's a lovely gray but it doesn't feel cold which I was really afraid of when we were painting it. It keeps the room feeling very open and much brighter than the tan.
I still need:
- Better lighting (COMING SOON!)
- Console Table
- Corner Chairs
- New Pillows
- Other things I haven't even thought about
But, I'm happy for now!
