To brighten everything up I had chosen this really pretty lavender-ish Behr color called Amethyst Phlox. Not cute on my walls but my almost 4 year old daughter loved it. After a ton of internet searching I instead decided on Light French Gray. It’s a good neutral, airy color and I can pretty much pair anything with it. I felt bad about the purple princess paint and the ugly frames and found out that I could actually paint them myself instead of buying new frames. Weird.
I really like rustic mixed with contemporary so I tried this distressed paint tutorial. My frames don’t look nearly as authentic as hers but at least I know I don’t have to buy all new furniture just because I hate the color. Trying out this furniture paint tutorialnext. I have a 200 year old dresser that needs a makeover.
