Hello dear friends,
I wish I could say I was painting something artistic and fabulous, but no,...this last week I have been painting my youngest daughter's bedroom while she is away in Europe studying and travelling.
I always forget how HARD painting really is! The ceilings are 12 foot high....... so that's the first challenge.
My husband really wasn't interested in doing it...so I somewhat rashly said "I'll do it...you don't need to help!" Hmmm.....!
Three (!!) undercoats were needed to cover the aqua paint in the cornice followed by 2 top coats and the same (one less undercoat) to cover the pale green.
That is a LOT of time up and down a ladder...my legs certainly got a bit of a work out!
While the aqua and pale green combination was very pretty...it was just a bit too "teenage' for a young woman, I think. ( By the way she does know I was probably going to do this!)
So, as much as the look is terribly neutral...it matches the rest of that portion of the house....and besides neutral is good as you can change linen etc!!
The aqua wall!
A very neutral palette now.
The main walls are still to have their top coat, the woodwork still to be sanded and painted...but I finally feel like the end is in sight. ( dear husband has started to help..think he saw I was starting to struggle a bit!)
I have got lovely new linen bed set and I am going to try and make a padded head board....wish me luck with that one.
Has anyone had success with headboards...if you have I would love to hear.
Ok...have had my little break...now back to the paint!
Hope you are all having a great day.
