Before and After- Den

February 5, 2010

Before: Blue and white floral wallpaper with a bright red, yellow, and blue border as a chair rail, a window with stickers all over it, a ceiling fan with glow-in-the-dark stars and planets on them, and a really rough and uneven base board.

So after the war with the wallpaper (I won, but did not leave unscathed) we cleaned and prepped the walls for this smoky blue, Behr Ultra, Silent Tide. This is really great paint, no priming and only one coat. We added a new baseboard to match the rest of the house and it looks great.

After: A perfect space to write, read, and be creative. I am planning on making a large cork or fabric board over the desk (Markor, from Ikea, doesn’t look like Ikea does it) using an old frame I have. Be on the lookout for that project. Now we just need a new fan, a daybed or sofabed, and a window treatment. Ranch style windows are challenging as they are small and high. I am thinking either a bamboo valance or shade.
