Home Makeover - Raulerson Home Office Edition Part 2

Before moving in..
When we bought the house and moved in with all our furniture, one of the big things on our project list was to liven up the knotty pine walls in the office. The room is in the middle of the house, so it doesn't get a lot of natural light throughout the day. It acts as a passageway to the "guest suites" on the opposite side of the house. Preston was anxious to get his office put together so he could have suitable work space should he decide to work from home on Fridays. 

The Transformation...
After much debate and several color samples, we decided on Everglade Glen (or Kermit the Frog Green if you're my dad...). We wanted something that would brighten up the room and add some color other than BROWN! Preston wanted a "creative" color such as blue, yellow, or green. We're pleased with the end product. Although the green may be a little bright for some, we think it works well with the space. The wood floor and dark brown/black colors of the furniture compliment it well. We're planning on putting a large painting on the wall behind the futon and a whiteboard off to the side. It's coming together... finally!
