New Mood? New Paint… that does the trick

If you’re even a little bit like me- sometimes even when everything still looks great, is even still in style- you just are over it.  And that’s why I LOVE PAINT- new paint makes me so happy!  Bye-bye Sour Apple Green and mini blinds… hello Sultana Purple and faux stained glass windows!

What a difference a couple cans of paint makes!

You might be surprised by just how much of the room is exactly the same from the ‘before’ to the ‘after’ photo.  Same flooring and rug. Same end tables and space heater fireplace. Same bookshelves, TV console cabinet and couch. Even the same pillows- sort of.

What’s different and new? aside from several gallons of paint…

Windows- I got tired of everyone in the family constantly closing the blinds so the blinds got ditched and up went this awesome stain glass window cling.  It took some time to apply carefully but I just love the result!  It looks magical by day as the sun comes in and is classy and private by night.  The hardest part was picking my favorite pattern.  Find an amazing selection of window cling transformations at Home Depot.  The window trim and sill was also updated to look like faux wood with Mahogany Satin Behr Ultra also from Home Depot.

Walls-  Behr Satin Ultra in Silver Bullet and Sultana

My splurge... a new chair for me!  Love my new club chair from Wayfair.  Talk about an affordable upgrade! Add some fresh fabric from JoAnn’s Fabrics to recover the pillows and TaDa- an awesome fast, easy and affordable room
