There's a lot of this color in my house and I'd like to freshen things up a bit. Ignore the wild drop cloth. It was cold outside and painting inside was my only option. Between coats, I also painted a picture frame from this same color to a warm white.
While things were drying, I decided to see if I could do anything about the curtains you see peaking out in the picture above and in the photo below.
Again, they're in the same color family. I guess I really went wild several years ago! I had some full length white ones in my bedroom, so I decided to switch the two. No ironing or adjusting needed, just a simple change out.
What a difference! I'm really happy with more light and neutral color in the that corner!
I'm going to be looking for a new rug with a fresher color palette than the one I have now and I hope it will brighten the space even more.
Isn't it amazing how small changes can make you feel so good? I've been smiling inside every time I look over there all day. Of course, it's also amazing how tackling one area of your house causes the other areas to become so messy. Here's how the rest of the kitchen looked when I was done...
Actually it's better not to think about that and just focus on what I did accomplish today!
