I’ve been Neutralizing the Great Room in our House! We have had the yellow walls for several years now, and while they were fun and bright, i am ready for a change! I am in the process of taking out all the knick knacks and color and slip covering and painting the furniture to give me a blank neutral canvas to work with!
It feels so fresh and new, yet i find myself missing the color… I had thought that i would bring in blues and greens only, but after looking around at the accessories and art that we have, i think that i will use the bright colors in accents, vases, art, pillows etc… then i can change them out as the seasons and my moods change!
right now we are in the neutral stage, and it feels good! The room is also very empty because i am in the process of re-finishing several pieces right now.
here are some before and afters….
And notice the Drop Cloth Curtains, Slipcovers on the Couch, Chair, Table Runner and Dining room Chairs…
yes i have gone Drop Cloth Crazy! I just love it!!
I just finished up the Couch Slipcover! It wasn’t as hard as i thought it would be , and i still have a few seams i need to tighten, but i love it!
I will be writting a post on it soon!
