The problem is, it made the living room seem so dark.
I've been trying to think of ways I could lighten up the room, without losing my wooden walls that I love so dearly. =)
I started thinking maybe I could leave the main wall that separates the kitchen from the living room, and then paint the other 2 adjacent walls.
I am a very visual person though. I need pictures to look at first, to make sure it's going to look okay in my space.
I kept searching "wooden accent walls" for months and months, but couldn't find exactly what I had in-visioned. Then FINALLY, I came across this picture, and that was all I needed in order to make my vision come to life!
(These pictures were taken way back in April of last year. I forgot to take "BEFORE" pictures before I started painting the walls. I guess I was excited to get started.)
So I actually used the same technique that I used for my kitchen cabinets...

I waited to do the moulding around the french doors, because I wasn't sure if I was going to paint the moulding, or stain them.
A few close ups...
So whatcha think? =)
I would love to hear your thoughts!
