The very first thing we did was go through everything in the room and got rid of a TON. Several bags went to the Goodwill, which felt great. Then they emptied the room and had the carpet stretched and cleaned. It's in great shape, it was just buckling in some areas.
Next we painted over those lilac walls. Mom's favorite color is purple, so we decided to do a bold deep purple accent wall. The color is Quixotic Plum by Sherwin-Williams. We used Sherwin-Williams Basalt Powder for the room's main color. The paint made such a difference.
