I always love transforming rooms with paint, because there are so many creative ways to make a room come to life with different colors. The even better part is that it's one of the most inexpensive ways to bring forth a transformation. Let's take a look at how the room looked before the transformation.
I really wanted this bonus room have a fun but sophisticated feel. I had planned on using this room as a space where I could conduct business meetings and just a place to kind of unwind, so I wanted it to feel like a creative space where I could come up with ideas but also have a chill vibe.
As you can see, this room was as simple as they come. It definitely needed some pizazz, so with a little help from Behr paint, I took on the challenge to bring this space to life.
Step 1: Adding Wall Paneling and Painting using Behr Deep Veridian
I first started off by adding paneling to the walls; I really wanted to add some depth to the room and I knew painting half the room a bold color would do the trick.
I cut the wood down to size using my miter saw and then attached the trim to the walls using Liquid Nails and 2" brad nails. Here I am using 1x3 select pine boards.
Once I added the wood trim, I went ahead and painted the walls with Behr Deep Veridian S400-7. I knew I would need two coats, so I found it easier to go ahead and paint the wall before applying the trim in the middle.
This Deep Veridian S400-7 was the perfect pop of green for this room and I knew it would be the perfect match for my green sectional. Usually with walls, I like to go with matte for the sheen, but being that I am painting trim, I used Semi-gloss to provide a little more protection to the wood.
Step 2: Painting the Striped Wall using Behr Studio Clay
Now on to the striped wall! If you've been following me for a while you know that I love doing funky designs with paint. Even though this was a more simpler way to do a funky design, I knew the striped wall would bring an element to the room that would change the whole feel of it.
I used my laser level to accurately apply my painters tape so that I would be able to create these striped lines. I used two lines of tape for each line to create a thick line all of the way down the wall.
Step 4: Stying the Bonus Room
Styling a room is always huge part of making the room come together and always one of my favorite things to do once I finish painting a room. I am so in love with my green sectional that I recently purchased, it is definitely the highlight of the room, along with some other amazing items. Check out everything in the room below.
The Final Reveal
I couldn't be happier with how this makeover turned out. The painted stripes really elevated the room and made this a space I can really have fun in.
If you've been following along with me on Instagram, you know that I am in the process of selling my home, so I decided to remove the wallpaper soon after putting it up, but I couldn't just leave the wall blank, so I decided to paint the wall with Studio Clay MQ2-27. If you aren't a super bold person, and don't want to go with wallpaper, paint is always a great way to bring a little character to the home.
The sad part about this room is that I will soon be leaving it, so I won't get to enjoy it, but I have many plans for many more paint projects at my new place!
and as always, Thanks for reading guys! XOXO Ashley!
