I wrote in the last post about being inspired by the latest issue of Country Living and some great charcoal walls.
I haven't been able to figure out what to do with my living room since I moved in over a year ago. Light? Dark? Wallpaper? Plain?
All I did know was that the glossy cream had to go. I hate glossy paint on a wall.
I love to paint, in part because you can completely transform a space in a matter of hours. This is my living room "after".
Deep, warm charcoal walls and darker accents than what I'm used to incorporating, but I love it.
I got the old oil painting yesterday. It has some holes in it and has seen some miles, but that's why I like it so much.
I might keep the cabinet and paint it chocolate brown, another Country Living inspiration with the charcoal walls. And I thought I'd take a large old gold mirror from my booth home, but I found this one yesterday, a score at only $60!
It has a great green gold patina.
And the minnow seine adds some design interest to the space.
The old school lockers I found last week blend well with the darker gray.
I bought one gallon too many, even with the two coats, but I have plans that just might include a master bedroom makeover. That will be next weekend's project.
And so it begins...
