We needed an entertainment center with A LOT of storage for all our books, games, and yes VHS movies (I know, I know, I'm a little behind on the technology front).
See the old window frame on top? My sweet friend recovered it from her home renovation.
It was one of the original windows in her 130+ year old house
and it is one of my favorite things in my house. Thanks again Tiff!
On the opposite side of the room we had a few chairs and a huge blank wall so the room looked very heavy on one side and bare on the other.
Sorry, no pictures of the huge, blank, beige wall.
Just use your imagination. ;0
I taped off the wall for 18 inch stripes (making sure I didn't need to paint where I had the vinyl lettering) and took the original beige paint and added white (just like with my painted wallpaper) to create a bit of a contrast without making it too "bold".
I wanted it to visually draw your eye but not smack you in the face.
