So, my husband and I were talking about moving some rooms around in our house. We needed a bigger dinning room, so the living room got the dinning room furniture and then we were left with a rather nice sized room with nothing in it....what are you thinking??? IKEA trip and a craft room we now have!!! I don't have before pictures of the dinning room/new craft room but I can tell you that there was 1980's floral wall paper on top of a chair rail and pale yellow paint on the bottom. Not anymore!
I don't know what made be brave enough to paint this room brown, but I love it! Painting with this paint was like painting with brownie batter. I've never painted with paint so thick.
So, here are some pictures:
Ikea furnished the room. We brought home to massive countertop units with storage drawers, a glass oval 5' long table, 3 wall box shelves, lamps and oodles of fun small stuff...in one van with 2 kids, 2 adults and a weeks worth of vacation packing. I love IKEA's packaging!!! So here we go: This is the plain counter piece
And this is what I did to it. I added papers behind the glass to hid the mess inside and to make it pretty.
This is the way the room started...clean
And the way it normally looks:
