Derona's Living Room

I wanted to paint my fireplace a wall deep charcoal for ages, but was hesitant as it is such a strong colour. I finally did it, thinking that if I hated it I could just repaint it. I loved it straight away! It defines the wall in such a dramatic way.

Jennifer's Living Room

This room was so dark and dated. The paint color was a deep hunter green with a yellowish/beige ceiling color. We lightened everything up with white paint on the fireplace, trim, and ceilings, and pale gray on the walls. We also added beams.

Gail's Living Room

My fireplace was downright ugly. I have hated it for years. The brick, the stone mantel and hearth. I changed the facade of the fireplace and gave everything a fresh coat of white paint.

Lisa's Living Room

I livened up my living room with an accent wall. While I was at it I updated the fireplace by painting the brass accents black with heat resistant paint.

First thing I did was get rid of the blues and egg yolk yellows! I wanted warm, neutral colours in the living room.

Myra's Living Room

The living room was a bright, yellow-gold which overwhelmed the space. With the addition of Board and Batten as well as a lighter paint color the result is much more pleasing. More details at MyBlessedLife.net
