Yo yo! You guys, my living room is literally 98% done. I have one small project to finish and then dun dun dun dun DONE!
So all you ladies out there know what a huge difference mascara makes to your over all finished makeup routine right? (and even better than mascara are fake eyelashes) This project is like that. You don't know what you are missing until you look naked (or your room looks naked) without it.
Today we are talking window trim, and more specifically black window trim. I know it may seem a bit well, black, but it made the HUGEST difference in my living room. Here is the before and after:
This project LITERALLY took me one morning to do (because that is all the time I had!) Its actually a fun story. At 10:00 I got an email from Laura. She co-owns Southern Utah Bride magazine, check it out if you need any sort of inspiration, they are so fantastic. They were doing a mid century photo shoot the next day and their location had fallen through. So naturally with my famous orange couch she thought of me. There is nothing like a quick deadline to get me moving. I had been playing around with the idea of framing out the windows since we took out that awful beam and put black moulding up in our hallway. So my BFF Hailee came over and helped me get the job done. I have no idea what I would do without that girl. She is my Justin Beiber to a screaming teenager. You can check out the photo shoot here.
And because of the crazy rush I didn't take any pictures. So if you are wanting a tutorial you will have to wait a bit (because I am doing it in my kitchen too!!)
Painting high contrast trim is such a great pick me up if your room is feeling a little stagnant. Its like the best set of falsies you can buy.
