BEFORE: The previous owners had all white furniture in here, which I guess made the eggplant tone-0n-tone stripes in here work for them. It felt a bit like a big purple cave to us though, and completely swallowed up our chocolate brown furniture.
The kids pitched in to help prime the walls in here. They really loved helping to paint, and I loved having them help--even if it meant sanding off a measurable amount of drips! Bless their hearts, they were such good sports about the whole big project!
