I was so overly excited to hear that I would be able to make over our blah family room.  It really needed a lot of help.  Do you see the spots on the wall (see picture below)…makes ya think it was painted in stripes!    The previous owners of the house loved brown.  I like brown, but not when everything is brown.  Light brown, dark brown, medium brown and kinda stripey brown.  I really wanted to brighten up the room and see if I could make the room look bigger and engage the ‘ahhhh’ feeling.  It is such a small room, so I was up for the de-browning challenge.  Bring. It. On. Sherwin. Williams.

How about another angle of the stripes.  Jealous?  I didn’t think so…

Let’s take a look at the other side of the room.  Do you see that rectangle ‘ghost’ picture?  So do I.  Kinda creepy.  I’m hoping it’s a glare from the picture frame on the opposite wall.

We started off using Sherwin-Williams’ Color Visualizer tool on the Sherwin-Williams website.  I registered using a username and password.  The website had easy step-by-step instruction on how to upload a picture of the room you want to paint. It was extremely helpful because you can pick from any Sherwin-Williams paint color and drag it onto your picture you uploaded.  It then automatically changes the wall color in your picture to the paint color you chose.  Hello coolness…yes, we tried orange walls.  Not to my liking, but it was cool to see how ugly orange would be in that room for when 1970 rolls back around.  In the end I picked a very lovely light gray color called Gray Screen.

Here is a bit of a hint…and look how it looked on my screen.  It was cool to change the wall so easily.  Too bad I couldn’t click ‘save’ and it would just paint my wall automatically.  Mr. Sherwin…get on that.

I then went to the Sherwin-Williams store and bought SuperPaint in color SW 7070 Gray Screen.   See picture above…and below.

We prepped the room for the painters to come.  We took out all of the previous decorations and pictures on the walls.  We moved everything else into the center of the room.  My little girls thought we were building forts!  Yes, kinda…just don’t touch the walls!

1 alison room before (9)

The painters came and painted the room in one day.  I noticed they used frog tape and were able to make the lines really straight on the base boards and ceilings.   When I first saw the room, I was so happy with the results of the paint.  The room already looked so much bigger.  Thinking of keeping the green trim…hmm?

1 alison room before (10)

In the following days we hung the blinds back up and changed out the electrical sockets.  Seriously exciting, as lame as it sounds.  The previous owners had just painted over them, so we really needed to replace them with white ones.  We went to Lowe’s and bought about 6 electric outlets and plates.  Another small thing we did that we thought might look nice was to paint the door handle on the sliding glass door.  Something so small looks so much better now.  Now our room was ready to start decorating.   Hello fun.

1 alison room before (14)

Okay, so you just get the sneak peak now of what is in progress.  You’ll have to wait a bit to see the rest.  It’s seriously worth it.  Oh, and while we are waiting for the paint to dry…go over to Sherwin-Williams and start playing with your wall colors.  Let me know if ya choose Orange.

    Lately all of my inspiration comes from Pinterest! But to be 100% sure we always get samples of a few different colors...it usually ends up being the one we thought we would like the least that we like the most. Much better to find out from a small square on the wall than have to repaint a whole room!

    I have two ways ... the first (and most of what I do) find a color from a paint swatch that I LOVE and can't live without! There's NOT one white wall in my home! My new - want to do - is adding a pinkish-purple- red to my living room (my living room is man cave - we have deer mounts, hunting pics, etc) ... Man cave is going to meet shabby chic!
    And the second way is by finding a piece of fabric that I can use - like my recent redo of my bedroom. I've had the comforter stored for 2 1/2 yrs, finally changed my paint colors to match my "new" bed spread!
    I JUST LOVE COLORS!!!!!

    I'm not very adventurous when it comes to paint colors. I hate painting so I try to go low key. I pick colors I like that tend to be more toward the neutral end. I don't like having to repaint when the color goes wrong. I've done that one too many times. We're getting ready to paint a bedroom, hallway and entryway and I'm leaning towards more color for the hallway since it's dark and right now it is very white.

    I usually find my inspiration from a piece of artwork that I want to hang in the room. Or if it's my bedroom I find my inspiration in a comforter I love. And then I match the paint to that.
