Painted Walk-Throughs Anyone?

(Don't forget to enter the 2 by $25 Gift Card Give-Away this weekend.  Easy to enter {here}!)

So...as you know, I've been dealing with a lot of WHITE.  And, when I say "white" it's an understatement.  The paint color they use for the interior walls in base housing here is called "asylum white".  I wonder why!?!?  The advertising slogan for the paint is likely, "Lovingly used in mental hospitals all across the globe!"

That being said, you've seen my painted wall in the master bedroom makeover {here}.  And, I've also put up paint in 3 more spaces - on my kitchen backsplash (reveal soon!), in my powder bath (another reveal soon!), and...drumroll...in my "walk-throughs/archways/door frames" - depending on who you are and what you'd call the fragments of wall between my living space and kitchen area.

Here is the area pre-paint:


And, a more-lovely area post splash-of-color paint job:



Much livelier, huh?  I used Benjamin Moore paint in "Million Dollar Red (2003-10)".  Couldn't resist with a name like that!  I needed (yet another...) splash of red, and this was a great way to get it without committing to an entire wall in red - which I would also have to commit to priming and repainting when we move out in a couple years.

Have you seen this done anywhere else?  I looked for examples out there in blog-land, Pinterest-world, and Houzz-ville, but came up short.  Look at me, being a decor innovator... :)

I'd love to hear what you think of it.  Was it a crazy idea - as in crazy cool, or crazy not so hot?  Either way, have a fabulous weekend - I'll be enjoying a girls' weekend at a college roomie's wedding in Nebraska!

Well now, that's kinda genius, now isn't it? What a great way to get a pop of color without having to do a whole wall!

What a great idea! A very different way to accent a room. Decor Innovator? I say yes!
