Color Correction Before & After

By | Craft & Create | One Comment

When I first bought my house about 3 years ago, I immediately painted each room a a different color. A typical story of being overwhelmed at the paint aisle and buying a gallon in every color I liked. I knew better, but I did it anyway. Ugh. Now, I am a little more mature about my color choices, choosing whites, blacks, browns and grey with a lot of help from my Domino book and Louise (my design advice-giver). Here is quick look at my front room. This is the second room I’ve color-corrected.

Before, walls in Behr Fossil Butte:

And now (almost done), walls in Ralph Lauren Cannon:

I’m leaving some wall space open for a chalkboard wall (see below) and will post pics of that soon.

Gnome Your Options Before & After

Garden gnomes are the best. If I could, I would have gnome lamps, gnome clothes, gnome pillows. But surprisingly, these little guys are hard to find in a decor-ready state. After staring at my sad little Walmart-sourced gnome for a couple of months,  I took matters into my own hands.

Here he is pre-makeover:

And after, with two coats of high-shine spray paint:

So easy! I have one more that I might do in the same color and use them as bookends. So glad to save these little guys from my poorly maintained garden.
