This post is sponsored by Lowe’s Canada, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
When my boyfriend and I moved into our space, the walls were a yellowy-cream colour and had been freshly painted. Rather than rushing to change anything, we lived with it for two years. Also, a few other items in our space had taken the back seat, so we decided it was time for a change!
My plans for the refresh of the space naturally included a fresh coat of paint in a lighter colour, a new rug and some plants. We visited our nearby Lowe’s Canada to pick up everything we needed for this little project. We had a colour in mind for the walls, so we took the colour with us and the Lowe’s paint and colour centre was able to match the colour exactly, and recommend the type of paint to use. We went with SICO Paints and chose “Flat.” While they were mixing up the paint we picked up paint brushes, painting tape, rollers and drop sheets. It was a very easy process!
After the paint was dry we could roll down the rug, put all of the furniture back into place, accessorize, and place the new plants in their new home. These small changes we made in our space made such a big difference and completely transformed the space for it. The last few days since painting we keep walking into the space and complementing the wall colour, and how much fresher the space looks now.
