Room Makeover

We decided it was finally time to paint the workout room this weekend and boy what a difference a coat of paint and some new bookshelves can make. Unfortunately I forgot to get some before pictures, so we'll just settle for the afters. Amanda and Jack will probably be the only ones to appreciate the difference, but we love it.

I picked up the new lamps with fabulous shades at HomeGoods today and I got the bookshelves at Ikea last weekend on the way home from Amanda's house. The walls look a little green from the yellow cast from the lamps, but it's a beautiful shade of blue-green called 'rolling hills.' The new blinds and photos will go up soon!


  1. Looks MUCH better! Will look even more amazing with some window treatments!

  2. I definitely think you should get two more book shelves - it will make it look more like a "wall unit."

  3. I like it. Trying to decide if we should put more effort into our current house or sell and take a loss.... What do u think???
