DECISIONS, DECISIONS....

I'm working on my girl cave today [more on this to come] and - its ugly, people. We're talking creamy orange 1960's walls, Weird, not-smooth wood "boxes" covering piping that runs across the ceiling. Oh yea, lets not forget the speckled brown tile, and that delicious old basement smell...

I'm pretty thrilled to be getting my new "girl cave" beautified. Today, I'm tackling painting this huge built in storage and desk unit. I'm using high gloss white paint, and I think adding a little pizazz in the built ins would do that space well. But- do I use another high gloss paint color, or do I use wallpaper?

So many pretty options. I'm just hoping it looks like one of these when I'm finished...

Love the direction you're headed in. It's almost better when you start off with a space that's as unappealing as the one you described, because then the transformation is that much more satisfying in the end. I personally prefer the solid color background that you would get with a high gloss- allows what you put on the shelves to be the focal point. But I'm sure either way it will turn out lovely!
