I've gotta hand it to Teen Mom couple Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. Despite a tough few years which included giving up their daughter Carly and tackling issues on VH1's Couple's Therapy -- they have a beautiful home together and seem happier than ever. Just like any young couple, they're working to make their home everything they've always wanted. But I'll be real -- Catelynn and Tyler's most recent home DIY has me cringing, just a little. The task at hand? Painting their living room.
Hey, at least Catelynn loves the new result. The old room? Pictured right -- a deep brown. The new room? Eeeesh. To say the walls are a pumpkin orange would be an understatement. Let's take a look at what they have got going on:
I mean, to each their own. When it comes to home design, everything is very personal. The tastes of one couple definitely won't match the tastes of another. With that said, though, this room is just very loud now. When it comes to choosing paint colors: opting for a punchy color is always a risk. Instead of turning this whole room a bright orange, I may have painted one accent wall with the pumpkintastic color and kept the other three a bit more tame.
So what's a couple to do when a room turns out not to their liking? Loads of retailers have a "love it or leave it" guarantee. Is repainting it a hassle? Of course. But the home should be a sanctuary. The extra day or two of home DIY work is worth a result that homeowners want to come back to. A result that makes you smile.
Luckily, Catelynn and Tyler love this orange shade. One thing's for sure -- it'll surely be perfect come Halloween 2014.
Have you ever hated a room after repainting it? Did you remedy the situation?
