One Room Challenge Week 2 - Painting the walls

Hi, friends,  it's week two of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda at Calling It Home.  I'm happy to say I got a lot done this past week!  I prepped the walls for painting and picked out the fabric for the new sofa.  If you missed week one you can check it out HERE.

 The first step in getting the room ready for my design plan is to paint the walls. This is the messy part of the challenge and what I think is the hardest.  The paint color I picked is Origami White by Sherwin Williams Paint Company.  I wanted something crisp and fresh, a little creamy but not yellow. This room has three windows and lets in a lot of light, I think it will be the perfect white for my beachy farmhouse living room.

I use a binder ring to keep my paint samples handy and organized.  Since I am using white on the walls, I'm going to try to incorporate some of these other colors into the design in fabric, furniture, accessories, and decor.

I took everything off the walls and spackled.  Hopefully, if my new sofa arrives on time the sectional will be going.  I need a fabric that is pet-friendly.  We use our small living room to watch television and to entertain family and friends.  This room needs to function as a family room and a living room for when guests come to visit.

I also plan on replacing the white blinds with woven shades. The television will be staying.

There is a small vestibule that enters into the living space.

I use this part of the living room as our entry.

Next week the entire room should be painted.  I can't wait to see this room white and bright.  I know all this mess will be worth it in the end. In a few weeks, I should have a completed space to show you. (hopefully, fingers crossed)
