The PTA President at my kids’ elementary school wanted to update the faculty room/ teacher’s lounge and asked me for some advice! Obviously I was delighted to get involved!
Obviously I recognized the potential for this space when we first toured the house. I appeared to be dry, had a wall of shelves, was surprisingly bright for being below ground and… was relatively BIG! My first instinct was to be lazy and just to paint it all: white concrete walls, white shelves, white floor.
When I first saw our house, my first reaction was “immediately no.” Our beloved agent showed us a dozen more homes and suggested that *maybe* I take a second look at this house and consider ways I could add my special sauce to the space to make it more exciting. This tiny foyer was one of the first problems I wanted to solve.
I didn’t realize how much I wanted to paint the playroom until… I painted the playroom! These stripes give the space SUCH an unbelievably needed boost of fresh and clean energy and I LOVE it. I also love that the scuffed and drab walls are now doubly protected because I used a special scuff defense paint that should help with the fingerprints and ball marks that were *everywhere* down there.
