Updating the living room of our house has been the top priority around here since moving in. We spend the most time there and our guests spend the most time there, so we want it to be a place that reflects us! The whole room was orangish wood, and I knew I wanted to paint the giant wall white- but I wasn’t sure about the beams.
I finally decided to go dark on the beams and the mantel to provide some contrast and tie in the slate mantel.
Ah, so much better! This was another project that I came home to (I should really leave more often, Dan always gets a TON of stuff done while I am away!). We researched the process and found a way to complete them without sanding! Yay! These beams are high up!
So how did we do it? Head over to Remodelaholic to see the step by step!
