|Border down! Now I just had to remove the pictures, so we could start painting.|
I had my paint colors picked out and decided to paint the walls half dark and half light. I figured having a young boy in the house that loved to run his hands down the wall, it would be smart to have a dark color on the bottom half of the wall. Hubby was not to keen on my idea. So, I painted a test strip to show him.
|The test strip. I made sure it was as level as possible using my four foot level.|
|Spiced Vinegar on top, stoney fields on bottom|
We began painting and the walls were a breeze! The paint rolled on great. I cut in the top as my sister rolled the walls. We were done by lunch and planned on doing the trim after.
The trim was a chore! We taped and painted. Hunter green was a pain to cover. We worked on the trim for four hours! I believe we applied three coats of off white enamel. Then my sister had to leave. I worked for another hour before calling it quits for the day.
|Working on the trim. See the blue painters tape.|
Hubby mentioned that the chair rail would look good. I told him to wait and see what he thought after I put the pictures on the wall. So, I decided to go ahead and put the pictures up tonight.
|The finished product!|
After I had the pictures were hung, he agreed, no need for a chair rail. Now to finish it off, I just have to wait for my new floors!
