Transform a Room with Paint

Remodeling does not have to be expensive.  You can change the look of your room completely with a fresh coat of paint.  When we bought our “fixer-upper” condo, the paint had not been refreshed in many years and was drab and boring.  The first thing we wanted to do was paint it and bring some color into the room!

Because the color of the furniture was very light, we decided to paint a darker “feature” wall and paint the rest a brighter yellow.  Our goal was to create a Caribbean beach look and make it fun and inviting.  At first, I thought the color may be too dark, but it is only paint and you can always change it!


A couple of months ago we were back down at the condo and decided it was time to replace the furniture.  The furniture was old and sagging and it was time for a refresh.  Of course, the furniture we chose was simply not going to work with that Caribbean blue wall!  We decided it was time for the condo to grow up and look more sophisticated, so we repainted the wall a soft green.  Now the look has changed from the fun beach look to a calming island look!

We love the look we have created and it only took a couple of gallons of paint to change the tone of the room.  Don’t be afraid of color…you can always change it!
