It's amazing what you can do with a little paint and some decorative molding. Just ask GardenWeb user enigmaquandry. That's all it took to give her living room a completely new look. Prior to the makeover, the room was "painted" by a previous owner who threw handfuls of paint on the walls. Enigmaquandry installed a chair rail, which she painted white, and chose Valspar paint in London Coach (4002-1B) for the bottom section and Modest Silver (4002-1A) for the top. Add to that some deep purple accents and the transformation is remarkable. Check out the before and after pictures.
