There is a room in my house that I have not showed you.  I have preteneded like it didn’t exist…like my house was perfectly decorated.  But it wasn’t.  I was lying to you.  Now if you have come to my house in the last two years you have seen the eyesore that this room is.  But in blogland nobody knows.  Well today is the moment of truth.  Yes I have a room that is bare and without paint on the walls.  GASP!!!
It is the loft.  It is hard not to notice since the room is ginormous and I see it everyday in all its naked glory.  The painter’s white primer is all dingy and fingerprinted.  The The massive space had nothing in it but a few boxesv until recently.
In the summer I dubbed this room “My Winter Project.”  So it is definitely winter here in Indiana so the transformation has taken place.  I have mentioned before that my mom has moved here.  When she arrived we inherited a pingpong table.

Then some people from church gave us a small air hockey table.  Which is perfect because I wanted to make this area the game room. 

First up…paint those white walls!  Hubby lost a bet so he had to help me paint this past weekend.  There is nothing sexier than a man in paint clothes!  He is irresistable when he is serving me by helping me with a home decor project, I tell ya.

I wanted something subtle and versatile in that room.  Normally I go for color, color, and more color.  But I decided on a khaki that I LOVES.  It is the same color that is in Kayla’s room.  We have also painted rooms in two other houses the same color.  It is such a warm color and looks good in every lighting.

It is Gobi Desert 710C-3 by Behr paint in en eggshell finish.  LOVES!

Paint just warmed up the room and made all the white woodwork pop.  I would have been just content with paint and nothing more.  Ok…well…maybe not.  But I loves the color on the walls.  LOVES!  You probably feel like you are looking at the same pictures twice…but believe me…it looks like a new room.

Next up…finish the window treatments!  Please watch the room unfold in the next month.

  1. The color is great! Oh, and we all have those places and those rooms. Thank goodness for zooms, photoshop, and cropping.

  2. I'll be watching every step of the way and I also love that color – it is warm and inviting and it is hard to get khaki just right – this one is easy on the eyes, not too dark, works with any color you want to throw with it and it definitely warmed up the space… and your hubby comments… ooohlala – you sound a bit naughty there… love to see that you can stroke his ego a bit while he gets the brush strokes on… its good payback…

  3. Love that color. Going to have to keep that in mind when I get to my next painting project. My husband would be so jealous of your "game room." We need a bigger house if we're going to have one of those! 🙂

  4. You really do have a great blog here. I have a blog myself which brings inspiration and guidance to people all around the world. Life is hard enough, and I hope my site can contribute anything positive to someone's day.

    I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible. Until then, keep up the good work.

  9. I can't believe you have kept a room a secret from us! BUt I love that we get to see your blank slate transform!

  10. thanks for the true confessions 🙂 I think it's funny though that what you consider to be tabu–an undecorated room–just looks clean and uncluttered to me! would LOVE my unpublishable rooms to look like that! lol love the new color and can't wait to see more!

  11. I love Gobi Desert, too…loved it in the living room so much that now almost every room except the kitchen is that color! (With some accent walls thrown in, of course). Good choice.

  12. Hello again! Just wanted to follow up with you on your question about the spice rack, they come in one size, but it's narrow so would probably work perfect for ya!

  13. When I watched your children and saw that blank canvas, I knew it was only a matter of time! I can't wait to see what you have planned! I love how it's looking so far! So, when's game night?! 🙂

  14. I love Gobi Desert! I chose this color for my living room in my rental several years ago when I convinced my landlord that it needed to be painted! The home we bought this year was already a neutral tan all throughout the house, so we didn't need to repaint those walls. But someday in the future if they do need to be repainted, Gobi Desert will be the choice! Can't wait to see your room transform.
