Living Room Before & After

I'm constantly working on our living room but I wanted to show you guys what it looked like when we first moved in and what it looks like today.  Your home doesn't have to be a final complete product- it can be evolving, changing and developing.

Here is a picture from the online listing of our living room.  The bottom of the chair rail is a rosey-beige and the top is a light green.  Not horrible- but it really wasn't my style. (note-this was the previous owners furniture)
What I really wanted was to do a panel wainscoting below the chair rail but that can be expensive and wasn't in the budget at the time so I faked it!

I painted above the chair rail Benjamin Moore- Chelsea Gray in a flat paint.  I painted below the chair rail Benjamin Moore- Dune White in a Semi-Gloss to give the illusion that there was wainscoting.  It's certainly not the same as paneled wainscoting but it does the trick for now!
