I have just recently moved into my new apartment, and it desperatly needs to be painted. But the catch is, my living room and my kitchen share a common wall. I do not want to paint the two rooms the same color, and because it is an apartment, i dont want to spend the money to put in a false beam to seperate the room.

Can somone PLEASE give me some ideas or suggestions.

I have seen where people have put up a nice oak board that has a router (spelling?) or some kind of design on it,up one side of the wall to seperate the 2 rooms that share the wall.
Have seen also where they do that and then have waynes coating on one side also to seperate the 2 rooms.

Another idea might be to use the common wall as an "accent wall." Basically, choose three colors, using one for the shared wall that helps tie the other colors together.

Hope this helps!
