    It was stark white with a bunch of junk hidden behind the couch:

    After 3 IKEA shelves and a gallon of paint:

    I'm pretty happy with the result - I'm going to use this color in a couple more areas now.

    I have another bookshelf that I am thinking of adding so they go all the way across, but now that they are up I dunno.

    It actually has a lot of red/orange in it, more than the pic shows.

    Other walls in my place are bright orange, dark red, dark gray, and light gray.

    I want to use this color around the entry wa and behind my desk, and like a camel color in my bedroom.

    I'll get some more pics - I need to finish painting the rest of the walls first and redo my desk area.

    Thanks guys.

    Actually a bit more than that, but who knows if I could even sell it right now.

    Here are a few more "before" pics which I'm sure everyone has seen. I'm in the process of painting and redecorating, still not sure about gray in the kitchen.
