With moving Clint's Man Cave to the basement, I was able to take back my office! There was one dark, problem though....
The paint. Ok, maybe this picture is pushing it. Do not get me wrong, I loved the color he had originally picked out, but I was sick of having to turn lights on during the day to see in there. For a few years now, I was begging Clint to let me change the color, to even just a few shades lighter. He had denied me every time. I think he liked the dark cave-like feel.
I even tried adding white curtains and furniture to brighten it up. Nothing worked.
When we decided to move his man cave to the basement to give him more space, I saw my chance. I started to think how this room would be used over the next 5 years. Office/Guest Room/possible kids room. With that said, I had to pick a neutral color that went with what I had. Thanks to a lovely gift card to Home Depot from a couple hard working volunteers at my work, I was able to nab a can of paint.
I decided on a soft yellow color. Due to the dark color, I choose the Behr paint with primer. After two coats, you could hardly tell the room was a dark cave before.
