The color I was going for was that of a worn baseball:
There really isn't a dramatic makeover here. We went from a grayish taupe to a warmer tan. Neutral to neutral. The biggest reason for the new paint was that the walls were in terrible condition after our various renovations. Nail pops and split drywall everywhere. I think the prior homeowners had a rainbow mural at one point which left behind paint lines. ROYGBIV. 3 coats of spackle and lots of sanding later and the walls looked like new.
The soon to be 6 year old helped out.
One more week until our baby is 6 and we can show him his big boy sports room!
