So, it was pink. The previous owners also left the window treatments, which were great quality, just not our style. The plan of attack was to fill nail holes, take down the wall treatment, and start to prime everything.
Another feature was the chandelier. My main concern was that it had a bright brass finish. I saw a post on Young House Love that inspired me. I decided to try to spray paint it into a more modern, cool, attractive chandelier.
Since we don't plan on keeping the carpet, we decided to paint it in the same room. I used an awesome product - Rustoleum's Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
And the carpet? Well, it didn't look like it was affected until I moved a few things...
Whoops! Looks like the carpet is really coming out!
Back to the room. Well the pink had to go, so we started with primer and decided on paint colors for the whole house.
From left to right (all Valspar):
1. Smoked Oyster
2. Oatlands Subtle Taupe
4. Summer Gray (bottom, trim)
I'm thinking Smoked Oyster for the dining room and Oatlands for the foyer - we'll see!
