I think I’ll paint the floor the same black as the rest of the basement.
Imagine white curtains over the windows and a bed-less king bed against the left wall (not the one you see there, which is queen-sized and therefore too small for us). A few books in the built-in and some coat hooks along the right side for robes and such, and we’re good to go!
What color should I paint that cool (yet creepy) built-in? Black and shiny? (maybe too dark) White and shiny? (maybe too country) Yellow and shiny? (maybe too loud?) Blue and shiny? (perhaps) The thing is really big and awkward in that corner, but in it’s original spot (between the windows) prevents us from putting a bed there, so, it’s gotta stay where it is.
It came with the house and is well-built, but reminds me of a prop for a scary movie. But, hey, it’s already there and in great condition, so let’s see what a little paint can do. Painted furniture immediately makes me think “country,” (not my thing) so I’m struggling a bit. I want it to be punchy but not Crayola, delightful but not ridiculous, bright but not overwhelming.
