Media Room Update- Blogging Without Borders

August 13, 2012

Well we are down to the wire with two weeks left for the big Media Room reveal here on August 27th. If you missed any of my updates, you can catch up on my progress here.

Since the last update I was able to finish painting the room..... well almost. At the 11th hour, I decided to add a pop of red on the wall as an accent color. Since I painted my base and trim the same color as the walls-Anonymous Grey by Sherwin Williams, I am thinking about adding a red stripe on the top and bottom of the wall. Haven't decided but am open to suggestions.
I was also able to modify the curtains in the room and remove the gold trim. Eventually my husband would like to take the curtain down and create shelving to store all of the electronics and movies.
I am still working on the art work for the walls. I will be finishing a project this week for the room and am adding other pieces from around the house.

I am happy with my progress and the changes so far and look forward to sharing the finished room with you. In the meantime, please check out what my other buddies have been up to with their challenge.

  1. the pops of red are so fun and i love the plain curtains!

  2. Can't wait to see the whole reveal- so far- so good! It looks great- xo Diana

  3. So fun! Can't wait to see it all come together. I think I'd skip the red stripe and just use red as the accent color, but I know whatever you come up with will be fabulous!

  4. Yoohoo - can't wait to see it. My DH would LOVE to have a media room, but I don't think I would ever see him again. He would probably set up a bed in there. LOL You are a very busy gal. xxoo

  5. The SUSPENSE! It's killing me! Can't wait to see this!

  6. can't wait to see it finished, like everthing else you do I'm sure it will look great

  7. Can't wait to see the reveal! I love an accent wall.

  11. Can't wait to see the finished project!

  12. Love the idea of a red stripe around the room - I think I like the idea of just one - maybe along the bottom. But I know you'll rock it!
