Alright, where was I? Ah yes, accent walls. For those who read this blog often, you know I've been mildy obsessed with dark grey/black walls for quite some time. I initially wanted to paint our blue bedroom black and white, but as we spend 90% of our time in the living room, I decided it took priority. That, and the fact Will looked like he wanted to kill me every time I brought up pulling apart our bedroom to paint. So, I sold him on painting the living room, or part of the living room I should say, partly because I passed it off as "just a few walls" and partly because he hates red accent walls just about as much as I do. See? I knew we were perfect for each other. It was actually his idea to paint the red wall white, which I'm really glad we did, it's nice to have a bright wall offsetting the dark grey. It was also his idea to hang the mountain print (previously over our bed in the apartment) on the wall, next to his Grandpa's ice pick. He's got an eye that one, let me tell you, I was very happy with the result. Also, I got my grey walls, so I'm a happy camper. I especially like that it breaks up the living room and gives us a little "diningroom".
So for now, here are the before and after pictures, and I swear I'll take better ones, but you get the general idea.
ps - How awesome are our "diningroom" table and chairs? Scored those bad boys at Value Village for $30. It was a great day.
