BB: I can’t stand it when people push their furniture up against the walls of their room. This is not a furniture plan! Pull your furniture in, let it “float.” By creating more intimate groupings of pieces, the result is a much warmer space. Another pet peeve, and I’m sorry BPF, is too much DIY. Most people are not good painters, or paper hangers. Hire a professional to do the work. It’s really well worth the splurge, and that well-prepped and painted wall will make even Ikea furniture look expensive.
