A (yellow) light clicked in my head. "Let's paint the living room the same color as the kitchen! That would solve the color transition problem." We were set on this idea, but a took a long time for us to finally buy the paint and find the time to do it. Even though I wasn't thrilled about repainting a room we painted when we moved in, I was excited about the contrast it would create and the brightness it would bring out.
|Beginning the first coat.
|Color transition problem gone.
|Final coat. I love the contrast!
Now that the walls are brighter, I feel the need to add some wall art to decorate them. We'll finally put up our pictures that have been sitting in storage or on the mantle. I'll also be heading to a couple of antique stores in town in hopes of finding something rustic, like a piece of curved wrought iron or stone.
