Ahhhh! So, totally, obsessed with how this lounge room design turned out! My goal was to make this petite room as cozy and inviting as possible while working in the vintage character and hints of animal accents that Tyler loves. The color scheme with the warm crimson walls (Benjamin Moore Dinner Party AF-300) and the metallic painted (Dunn Edwards bronze metallic) embossed wallpaper below the chair rail molding make it feel elegant while the animal knobs, Hackney Empire fabric and hand-painted (by moi) Mix-Owl-gist lends an element of whimsey.

DIY Mix-OWL-gist Bar Art
- Pencil and eraser
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolor paints
- Pallet or small bowls
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Sketch your owl or animal bust using a pencil **If you are not a confident drawer you can have an owl printed from online art or trace one**
- Go over your sketch with watercolor paints starting with more watered down pigment and adding darker pigment with a smaller brush. Let each paint layer dry unless you want them to bleed together.
- Sketch and paint accessories for your animal keeping in mind the size of your animal so that the bow tie, top hat, etc. will be proportionate.
- Cut out your desired shapes and hot glue for a 3d interactive art piece.
- Frame and prop on counter or hang!
I used a ton of thrift store finds to accent in this room from glassware to bowls, pitchers, etc.
What do you think!? We’d love to hear from you in the comments! What’s your favorite part of this room transformation or the episode in general? How about Joey thinking he’s Michelangelo painting a ceiling medallion…LOL ; )
