Here are some before shots. I had already starting tearing the place apart before I remembered to take pictures...thus the deer head on the couch.
Lots and lots of spackling! Once we had all that done, we painted the short walls a really light grey color. It actually looked white at first, but it darkened a lot over the next week, so I am happy with it! For the long walls (window wall and couch wall) I wanted something that was going to POP like crazy. I am not a pink person, but for some reason I really wanted to go with a coral color. We landed on a Valspar color called "whipped strawberry."
So here are some "after" shots before I really got to decorate. I've rearranged the shelves and mantle, and hung a few things on the wall. I don't have my charcoal couch yet, but I'm aiming to get it this summer! The room will look a billion times better with a new couch, but for now I'm satisfied with a fresh paint job :)
That's it for now! I will post some more "complete" pictures once I get my couch.
