I posted the before picture of my son's gaming room, last week. Since it was previously my daughter's bedroom it was a nice dusty pink - not too cool for a teenage boy. The first task we had to complete was too change that wall color.
We did exactly that this past weekend. The color we chose was a very masculine Sequoia by Martha Stewart. Both of us love the warm brown.
A small pull out sofa that we wanted to keep in there was covered with a black material. I had previously re-upholstered it to fit the decor in another daughter's bedroom. The original, quite vintage, sofa was a brown stripe. It will go perfectly in the room now.
I painstakingly took apart all the work I had done before to cover the sofa. I must have used about a hundred upholstery nails in that thing. I think the sofa is from the late 70's or early 80's so it is quite old - it used to be my husband's as a teenager. However, since we are going to have some vintage boxing gloves and photos in there too it should all be good. I just need to make some new pillows for the back rest.
Here is the first photo to just show the wall color and the sofa without any pillows yet:
NO MORE PINK :)
