Before & After: Blank Entryway Gets a Bright, Easy Makeover
My apartment’s entryway is an angled, narrow pseudo-hall that opens to my main living space. After searching for a way to create some definition, I decided to do a little painting project, inspired by my coworking space.
Here’s the inspiration:
I love that I work from a place that makes bold design decisions, so when my WeWork location recently opened up this new common area, I filed away this simple geometric painting technique for future use.
After many days spent working at home due to faulty public transit and way too much snow, I decided to do something about my bland entry. Here is how it looks now:
With a simple roll of 1-inch painters tape, some sponge brushes, and a handful of paint samples, I did this on one particularly snowy day. This project took all of 10 hours, which was mostly waiting for multiple coats of paint to dry.
I used Behr paint samples (under $3 each) from Home Depot in the following colors:
- Silver Screen
- Electric Orange
- Aqua Spray
- Blue Jewel
- Yellow Flash
- New Green
- New England Patriots Navy
The rest of my place is quite colorful, so I chose hues that are already in my art and decor.
Have you done any painting projects recently?
