These days, we´re slowly but surely tackling our attic room. The picture above is the "before" from about two years ago. I wrote a bit about this room here. So far, we have used this space as a huge guest room. Also, we´ve dumped everything in here which didn´t find a space elsewhere. We don´t have a basement where we could store anything (ours is too wet) and despite its generous size, the house is lacking storage space, so stuff was kind of piling up in here and it all felt very disorganized and chaotic. Which eventually made me think that I should probably stop feeling guilty about all this unused space and just make it work for us. Paint seemed like a good thing to start with.
So we borrowed a huge ladder from our neighbor and painted those endless walls white and grey (farewell yellowish beige, I will not miss you). Once we were finished, it was the floor´s turn. This is the only room where I can get away with white floors (since it´s a pet free zone), so white it was (it´s Whimborne White from F&B).
I love it. It makes the room instantly brighter (duh). It takes forever though. It is a really large space so I divided it into three "zones" and I am painting one after the other to make this task manageable.
Now, here´s a bonus picture for those of you who think I always have an immaculate home:
There you go!
Once everything is finished I´ll show you how it turned out and also tell you how we plan to use the space in the future. Until then, come help me paint those floors? Pleeease?
