Goodbye Purple Room, Hello Fresh New Office

It’s finally time to say goodbye to our infamous purple room, aka – ‘the dungeon’. The previous home owners thought it would be a brilliant idea to paint the walls AND CEILING a nice plum purple in a room that gets very little natural light. We have a large tree that blocks majority of the sunlight into the window – so mix that with a dark color on the walls/ceiling and you’ve got yourself a dungeon.

This room is going to be Evan’s new office once we get it done. The room he is currently using was always a temporary thing until we got this room painted – it only took us two years to finally do it. One room at a time, one room at a time. 🙂

We used this room to spray all of the upstairs doors so that’s why there’s weird overspray/white on the walls. It has basically been our “project room” for the past two years. And to be honest, the pictures here actually make the room seem much brighter than it really is. It’s a lot darker, but I had to turn on my flash to get any sort of shot of it.

Everything in this room is getting painted – trim, walls and ceiling.

I put together a little mood board for the direction we are going for this makeover.

We spent all weekend painting and the room is finally starting to take shape. I can’t wait to show you all the final reveal soon. I seriously cannot believe how different a room can look just by painting it! More updates coming soon…
