Here is the after. The pear paintings are originally from Ikea but were found at our local Goodwill for less than $10 each! My sister has been wanting them forever so we purchased them and brought them up as a surprise for her! They really brighten up this wall. The coffee table also used to be a dark brown but we painted it a creamy white and distressed it some...
The lamps received a makeover as well. We used the same bases she had already but switched out the shades for some she purchased at HomeGoods. They were plain white but with some creativity and a little time and patience we turned them into personalized pieces that I'm sure will be great conversation starters!
The wall across from the couch wall received some empty frames, (most bought at Goodwill and some were hers already), that we painted a grey/blue and hung ni a collage. Over time she will add to this and maybe hang some things in a few of them. She will also be looking for a small dresser/chest to put along this wall to hold all of thier movies and games in.
Tomorrow I'll feature her bedroom and bathroom makeover, it too went a little french country!
