Hopefully, you're not tired of seeing this room. I know I have already shown it several times, so I'm not going to go in detail over anything I've already posted. I spent most of my weekend and this week repainting my family room, bead board and trim. I decided to go with the same color that I used in my kitchen and foyer. It is called Linen White by Benjamin Moore. I'm very happy with the results. I also painted my armoire that houses our TV (does anyone still use these anymore?).
That was my 360 degree panoramic tour! Ha!
I painted the armoire to look something like the one on Deserae's blog, Peeking through the Sunflowers. I have always loved her style, but when I saw her painted armoire, I thought I could try that. Her armoire is intricately carved and much more substantial than mine. So, mine isn't in the same league, but I tried her tutorial and came up with this.
It's difficult to get a good picture because of the clouds today. I used Fawn Brindle by Sherwin Williams on it and then dry brushed it with white. I may go over it with a dark wax later. It's a nice touch of grey for my room.
Since my walls were painted white, I decided to paint my urns grey on my mantel.
It's hard to see the color difference in this picture, but trust me.....it's grey!
I have bead board around the perimeter of this room including a hallway that leads to the kitchen.
So, as you can see, I was wearing white paint for several days! Glad that I'm finally finished before Christmas decorating begins. That was my goal.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow and gets some rest before the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season begins!
