How to Change the Look of Your Gallery Wall with New Frames

Do you have a gallery wall, or maybe some art prints that are missing a wow factor? As we are wrapping up our living room makeover I decided that I want a gallery wall to display some art and prints that we already have. But the current mix of the different pieces or art and prints and frames don’t quite jive together.

Go Bold with Orange Painted Tables

Go Bold with Orange Painted Furniture *Redesigned Coffee & End Tables*

These vintage coffee and end tables were originally made by Mersman and are from the 1970s. The end tables each feature a dovetail drawer, while the coffee table merely has a faux drawer. The hardware on the trio were not at all original to the pieces but were thrown on at some point before they came to me, and they weren’t even the correct size. mersman, vintage mersman furniture, coffee tables, end tables, vintage furniture, orange painted furniture

Painted Media Console in Sunshine Yellow

This media console is part of our living room makeover. Initially, I had plans to replace it with a piece from my inventory. I figured I would sell this one and grab an unfinished piece from my stash to paint, but that just seemed wasteful since this media console is barely two years old. Hence the final decision to keep this and jazz it up a bit, besides it has an electric fireplace, so in hindsight, it was a no-brainer to keep it.

Make sure to stick around until wayyyyy at the bottom of the post, there’s a special treat down there for you as well! You get to meet some awesome peeps.

The Before – Unfinished Media Console with Electric Fireplace

I do love this tv stand set up, but hate how dark it is. I ordered it online a couple of years ago and love the electric fireplace inside since we don’t have a real fireplace in our home. You can get one (or something similar) HERE if you love it too.

Painted Wall with Fresco Lime Paint

Fresco Lime Paint by Pure & Original

Can I tell you how excited I am about my ‘new’ wall? We have been knee deep in a living room makeover project. We have removed and replaced just about everything except the children! I decided that I want a cloudy finish accent wall.

The Before – Plain Wall Before New Paint

Here is my ‘ before’ photo of my normal wall. Actually, the wall was a dark sage green to start and was not initially going to be the accent wall. After starting to paint the room we made a few changes to the plan and decided that we would move the television from one wall to this wall and make this the cloudy accent wall. fresco lime paint, pure and original home renovation, living room, painted wall Continue reading Painted Wall with Fresco Lime Paint
