Hi Everyone! Glad the week is over and the weekend is soon approaching. If you all have been to my blog you know I have been changing things up in my living room.
Today I will show you how I created an inexpensive way to decorate a blank wall.
I paint a lot of furniture and sometimes I keep it and sometimes I sell it. Sometimes I get rid of too much!
I am always moving things around.
My husband never knows what he will find when he wakes up....he is used to it now. He always has a different place to sit Now the dog is starting to get acclimated to it too!
I can't wait to show you my madness!
My main color are turquoise and coral. I am loving the way it has brightened up a dark space.
My living room is a dungeon!
It is! My husband loves it that way. No light! A man cave feel. Ugh!
Without doing major construction, I decided to add mirrors and bright colors to the space.
I started with a huge blank wall and little furniture.
Actually I brought the buffet I painted into the living room for the TV to sit on.
I am not crazy about the TV being the main focus but my husband again likes that man cave feel!!!
So this is how it started.
I wanted to create something affordable and I didn't want to paint. Remember I like changing things up so I like a neutral palette. and I didn't want to attach too many things to the wall.
I wanted to bring in some texture.
I found some old shutter doors to lean up behind the buffet. I added some old architectural pieces to give it a little whimsy. All the white chippiness wasn't helping me with color,so I painted a couple of the spindles.
I added a few pieces to bring in more color. Using things I had around the house. I even wrapped some canvas with fabric. I wanted to add a modern look with the vintage look.
It wasn't enough so I moved the canvas out more to the sides. Then changed the direction of the spindles. All this achieved with 3M Command Strips holding it up! I love those things. Now I can move it around when I want to change it up and no holes! (My secret tip)
It added just enough color and texture.
It filled the blank wall enough so that everything wouldn't be just floating in place.
It is very different and I like it for now! LOL
Starting to look bright and cozy in here!
All this using things I had laying around.

Still wish I had a sky light or something....
Time to work on the next wall!!
