We've Got Color!

The painter came back to begin Round 2 of the guest room painting experience.  In Round 2, he finished with some prep work and primed the walls.  I chose to tint the primer because the initial wall color was an eggshell white and if the primer was tinted, then less of the wall color paint would need to be used.  (I know I'm not alone in this, but even when I purchase a 2-in-1 paint/primer, I still prime the walls.)

The next day, the painter returned to finish the work.  Just like with the initial prep-day, he was very meticulous.  Even still, after inspection, I found a place or two that needed additional paint.  It happens, especially when you finish a paint job at night.  In the day, the glare will show if there are areas that need a touch-up or two.  I'll just do those myself.  Then I can say, yes, I did help paint the space.  LOL

Each day, as the paint settles into the wall, the color changes a bit.  I don't regret choosing a darker, deeper wall color (although I almost second-guessed my choice when I fell in love with the primer color).  I plan to balance it out with whites and lighter colored accents.

So what's the next plan of action?  Rescreening window screens, hanging blinds and curtains, and a bit of electrical work. 

Stay tuned!


  1. Beautiful color choice Libby! Any color you bring into the room will work perfectly. I hope the rest of the project goes smoothly too.

  2. Wow, I totally didn't expect this! I guess your house must receive plenty of sunlight for you to have chosen this dark colour for the walls. In my place this would look gloomy, as I don't get any natural light. Can't wait to see it dressed with blinds and curtains! :-)
