Ok guys. This is SERIOUSLY starting to get good. Paint is all the wall!
Who remembers this nasty color? The trim was this weird brownish color and the wall was this brownish color. It was time for some major paint.
For the wall color, I chose Crushed Ice from Sherwin Williams and had Home Depot match the color for the Behr paint plus primer. It worked like a charm to cover the dark color. I did one coat, then a second coat over the textured places that the paint didn’t go all the way in. It looks fabulous!
It made the room so much brighter. Now for the window seals. I didn’t want to do anything too pricey, so I got some cheapo Better Homes and Gardens Glidden paint from Walmart. I used the Cotton White color. So much better!
I can’t even tell you how much better things are looking now that the window seals are done! I was really avoiding the ceiling for as long as I could, but I finally buckled down and did it.
I was sure to wipe it down so that it would be nice and clean before I started painting. As soon as I started to wipe it off, The weirdo texture started coming off! First of all, who texturizes a bead board ceiling?! I was SO excited that the texture came off so that I could have a nice and smooth ceiling. I couldn’t wait to cover up the brown paint that the previous owners got on the ceiling and the random places that didn’t have any paint on it at all. Surprisingly enough, painting the ceiling wasn’t all that bad! I can say that now that I am done. It was totally worth it.
Sorry for the cruddy picture, but I couldn’t wait any longer to take pictures!
I am not even kidding you, you will DIE when you see what I did to this room today! I am so excited to show you!
