>The front room our house was intended as a formal living room. For us, it has served as a playroom for the kids and, most recently, as a bedroom for Gracie. It has always been a hodge/podge and a mess! Like the rest of the house (still in the works), the front room was due an “unextreme” (read – bad economy) makeover! Popcorn ceilings came down, new knockdown texture was sprayed on both the walls and the ceiling, and a fresh color scheme of paint was added.

Before . . . . all the walls were a robin’s egg blue.

(sorry for the dark/blurry photo.)

We hurried on this room in order to get finished by Christmas so that Santa would have somewhere to leave the Wii! We painted the front wall a peacock blue. The other three walls are a dark chocolate brown.
