Guest Room Sneak Peak...
Yesterday I started painting the downstairs guest room that I have been orchestrating for a while now. Here it is when we looked at the house, one of three office spaces in the house - the people that lived here must have worked way too much.
I posted my inspiration pics earlier here. The room has some really pretty crown - but it is that yuck orange wood that the whole house is trimmed in. The color of the wood is really an additional color in the room - only once the orange is painted over you can see what the wall color is.
In this small room I have 3 doors to paint, 2 windows (which partly will have to wait until spring), crown moulding and baseboards. I will do one maybe two coats of primer, then at least 1-2 coats of paint. While my MIL and FIL were here building and painting our built-ins they said they discovered a miracle primer that was outdoing my Sherwin Williams Adhesion Primer 2 to 1. I hope she's right! I'm not that excited about it 1 coat in, but we shall see.
Amazing Gray Silver Fox
I thought I was going with Silver Fox, but when I took everything out of the room and started painting out the trim, it looked a little dark - so I will paint a bigger swatch tomorrow and see how I feel.
Here is my pillow sneak peek:
If I can get all the trimming done, maybe I can get some help with the walls this weekend. My roller seems to be more willing to help if he doesn't have to trim. Wish us luck!
