What has me doing somersaults on the front lawn? A room redo, perhaps! No recipes today. No, this post is all about spreading baked brie on the walls instead of eating it.
Wait . . . what? Here it is, folks. The walls of our office have been pink since probably 1962. ENOUGH! A quick trip to Lowes and a couple hundred dollars later ($277 to be exact), a less-little-girl-pretty and more posh place to call our office/guest room was born.
(And baked brie is the color name, if you were still wondering.)
Here's the office before, in all it's pink-ness:
A little paint shot to show how much different wall color makes:
One more before:
And now a couple afters (still need to take more, but you get the idea).
MUCH, MUCH better!!!
Paint (Olympic "baked brie" color-matched and mixed for Valspar paint) = $23.00
New ceiling fan = $79.00
Couch = free (snagged from other room & it's a sleeper! put the other on the street to find a new home.)
Rug = free (snagged from bedroom, but -- we bought another one for $20 to replace it)
Pillows = $45.00 (Home Goods <3) mirror =" $20.00" prints =" $70.00" curtains =" $20.00">
TOTAL = $277.00
