Can you believe THIS is what our family room wall looked like almost exactly one year ago?! Thanks to my INCREDIBLE hubby, it has opened up this room. Insert: Best House Decision YET!
Because there always is a but...
They work well with other things.
Come together without much thought.
Look great quickly and effortlessly.
Other things DO NOT.
Enter the KITCHEN OPENING struggle.
It is a much added bonus to the room, pleasant, gives us this AMAZING view of the family room and aids in helping us be more hospitable to guests in the family room, however, like all wonderful objects, it has its flaws.
It is plain, empty, barren, and sad looking.
Even with lovely flower pictures from Target I can't seem to liven it up.
We tried painting it. Grant it, the paint color was an awful choice - made it look like a boys dormitory basement.
Oh, the complications.
As you can see, I LOVE this wall and LOATHE it all at the same time.
much like the feeling I have after eating 2 bowls of ice cream
If you have any suggestions please feel free to help a gal out :0)
I will leave you on a positive note - I really am grateful for this opening and even if it stays just the way it is, it does look ten million times better than before!
