Anyone want to guess what color we painted the guest room? And no, I'm not talking about the color we chose our first go at it. If you remember, we didn't quite get the color right the first time. The black-splattered, tortured teen's room desperately needed a paint job:
Initially we painted it this warm, tan-gray called Closeout (by True Value).
We got one coat almost on all the walls before I started having an anxiety attack. We went from black-splattered walls to poop splattered walls. And that's where our last segment in our online mini series ended (you can watch that video here). Oh the suspense! This weekend our long list of projects included repainting that room. Technically, we should wait until the next video to show you the new wall color, but our next video is going to be so jam-packed, you aren't even gonna notice the new paint color. So, newsflash!--we went with a light gray. Shocker, I know. I guess we know what we like, and also we wanted to keep things light because it is a basement room. The color of choice--Benjamin Moore's Moonshine, color matched to True Value's paint because they are picking up the tab on everything we do to this room. And after our fastest painting session to date--just 90 minutes!--we had the whole room painted soft Moonshine:
*Sigh* So much better, right? And if you are wondering what that blue strip is near the baseboard--it is blue paint that was under the carpet. There are no baseboards in this room, yet. While I am spilling secrets, also this weekend, after painting, we ripped out all the carpet in this room (the carpet extended up onto the walls--scroll up to see) to prep the room for our next project--staining the concrete. You'll see all of those details in our next online video due this week (it will go live next Friday). We have tons of work to do in the next 3 days on this floor, but we can't wait to show you the results. We think it is going to look amazing. We think.
