Nope, not those polls! Let’s be honest, no one wants to talk about that day looming…at least, I sure don’t.
On a much lighter note, Josh & I have slowly been making over our bonus room this summer. Here’s where we started; although technically this was after we’d already updated our seating. I’ll see if I can find a picture pre-sectional – which is how this room existed for the first 3 years we lived here.
You’ll notice I didn’t even bother to clean up before I took these pictures for you. That’ll just make the transformation that much better! Right?!
We had done very little to this room, we simply placed our previous home’s furniture in it and went on our way. To be honest, we hardly ever used it either.
And then one day I FINALLY convinced Josh that our living room couch is just not comfortable for TV watching! Gorgeous leather? yes. Comfortable for more than an hour? no. Especially since its at an odd angle from our TV because of the layout of our room. So we started watching TV in our bonus room. Finally!
And then, coincidentally Josh’s boss moved and had to get rid of his sectional. We couldn’t pass up such a great deal on a full reclining sectional and decided to go for it. This sectional is about the complete opposite of our living room couch. The most comfortable couch you’ve ever sat on? yes. Gorgeous? definitely not. In fact it may be my least favorite color ever! Which really makes it hard to decide what direction to take this room. How do you complement ugly??
But we are determined. We will find a color that makes even this couch look good!!
So we decided to paint. And though we went back and forth on what color, we ultimately decided on 2015’s color of the year: Coral Reef.
Luckily, we only did one wall. Because…well this. Not great :/
That cutie in the corner though? She’s great!! 🙂
What do you guys think? Could you live with this color on your walls? We actually had this pretty watercolor painting in our living room and brought it up after we painted to try and help. I love the painting and we’d kind of like to keep it up here. So maybe we should try green?
We’ve (read: Josh) put together some pictures in photoshop with different greens and I’m really hoping you can help us make a decision!
Which one would you choose? All paint colors are by Sherwin-Williams.
Thanks for your help guys!
