For us, this month has been all about painting. Next on the list was our friend Heather. It was her New Year's resolution to transform her living room into something striking and new. She borrowed a few Domino Magazines from us to flip through for inspiration--and she found it. Going off this bright colored, teal wall, we worked with what she had and made her space into something brand new. See the after photos below the jump!
Before the transformation
We failed to take before pics but rounded up this old photo from the 4th of July last year.
We arrived just in time to finish prepping the walls and start applying the paint.
We think the space turned out amazing! With a few coats of Behr's Empress Teal and Ralph Lauren's Golden Candlesticks, the room is instantly updated.
On a budget, Heather splurged for the Ralph Lauren paint and little else. The one item she did purchase was the empty gold frame (from a thrift store) that showcases the new teal paint. We culled art from other rooms that unified the space (going off the Domino picture as a guide).
We love how the gold paint opens up the space and the bay windows now pop with a fresh coat of shiny paint. The only thing left to purchase are a few window coverings.Related Inspirational Posts
