Chris and I picked up a new favorite show recently: Modern Family. We laugh out loud through every episode and we have already caught up on the past two seasons. We have fallen for more than just the family members–their houses! Ahhh! We love. We love. In Phil and Claire’s home, they have this blue wall that we have been eyeing since we started watching the show two months ago.
So, when we set out to paint our family room, we agreed right away that we wanted a “Modern Family blue” for the accent wall. We went with Behr’s Waterscape and got painting. Two of the three walls we painted the same color as the majority of our dining room/kitchen/living room/staircase–Cape Hatteras Sand–because it opens up to those areas and we wanted it to blend. Before the color of the family room looked a lot like some of Greta’s diapers (excuse the mess, it has been a bit of a dumping ground while we are getting settled):
After a quick paint job (it took us less than 2 hours to paint to whole room), it looks like this:
We are almost ready to invite “Phil” and “Claire” over to admire it with us. But, we definitely need to get a sectional for seating down there first. … Which we may have taken care of this morning at a huge Memorial day sale. :) I guess you’ll just have to wait and see when it gets delivered on Wednesday. I’ve said too much. I’ve already said too much.
