The living room makeover starts with a coat of vanilla paint to create a winter-white palette. Large vertical stripes painted with a mixture of glaze and silver metallic paint add some elegant glitz to the walls. The far accent wall is painted a soft, mossy green. A new chandelier is hung in the center of the room to brighten up the space even more.
A pair of old window panes is given new life with some inspiring holiday words. Frosted self-adhesive paper is applied and the words Love, Hope, Joy and Peace are stenciled onto the glass. A freeform Christmas tree is also drawn onto the paper and then cut out. Soapy water is used to peel off the paper.
