The den is almost done! Almost…But what the heck, let’s look around and see what you think.
Let’s do a quick birds-eye view…
And to think it all started with 2 gallons of Behr Ultra Paint and Primer and a determination to paint my wainscoting!
When I picked my new colors I thought I’d so love to have a new sofa and love seat in a sandy-color. Not the sugar white sand of the gorgeous gulf but kind of an Atlantic-side-sand color! At the Macy’s Clearance Center (at Town Center for those of you from Metro Atlanta) we came across this…
I loved it … but it wasn’t a sofa and love seat…it was a sectional.
I’ve always resisted sectionals…here’s why:
The Husband calls them:
Oh for the love of Pete! I can’t put something in the den called a pit group. The Husband has wanted a “pit-group” since the first year we were married in 1986.
I hate the term pit-group. Let’s agree never to speak those words again…
I may hate the term…(I won’t say it, read my lips: pit group) But I LOVE the new sectional! It’s half filled with down and it’s ‘slipcover’ style so (supposedly) it’s all removable and washable.
But BEST of all there’s plenty of COMFY room for everybody…
There are usually 4 pups stretched out on this end!
And look! Just in time for our new (almost out-of-the-oven) granddaughter, Lucy Jean, a swivel rocker!
Reba, our little survivor, loves to sleep on the ottoman.
I was worried about lighting and tables with a sectional but I put a couple of floor lamps in just the right places and used small tables here and there! I’ve never been so comfortable in my den! NEVER!!!
I do love the sectional but all in all…the Behr Ultra Paint with Primer is the star of this entire makeover. For very little money we got HUGE results!
When I painted I took stock of every single thing I put back on the walls…only those things we truly love made the cut.
I’m still looking for a few things…
I know we need a big rug. I’m looking…
And I need something for this wall…
(Isn’t that round frame divine? It was gold and it isn’t in good shape but apply a bit of Behr Ultra Paint with Primer in Antique White and …sigh it’s true love)
Whew! And there you have it!
Next week I’m going to show you around the kitchen! If you’ve been thinking about painting your cabinets you may want to drop in!
*****I’m also going to give all the paint colors again, as many have asked about this. But I want to post the tealish custom color that I’ve used on soooo many pieces of furniture, frames and the hardware on my kitchen cabinets! My Behr Paint Specialist worked so hard to get the shade just right! (I promised I’d do this today)
I took in a vase and an Easter egg to match. The vase was too shiny and the egg had speckles so that ah-mazing Home Depot employee searched until she found a Behr color that was close to what I wanted and then she mixed and remixed and remixed until it was just right. I almost kissed her right on the cheek!
Have a color-filled weekend Peeps…
