On Friday night, Dan went to pick up paint for the dining room while I got started on painting the corners and around the trim in the office.
Less than four hours later, we were done painting the entire room. How about that.
We didn’t tape off the trim or cover most of the floor for a few reasons:
1. The floor is incredibly scuffed up and dingy, so we’re going to repaint it soon. What’s a few blue spatters? (Though we didn’t end up with any on the floor after all).
2. I thought I could be neat enough with our little angled brush that I could avoid getting paint on the trim. Hah! Um, yeah. I am definitely not neat and precise enough to paint without taping off the trim. I don’t know how Sherry does it!
So now the sides of the trim are blue. Partly because I got paint on them, and partly because they were painted brown instead of the off-white of the rest of the trim, and that just looked weird. We don’t have time to repaint the trim before Thanksgiving!
I LOVE this color blue. It is Behr Premium paint matched to Valspar’s “Shark.” By the bay window, it looks like a pale blue.
On the other side of the room, it has a gorgeous silvery blue color. Love.
The dining room is done too, but that post is going to take awhile… there was a LOT of masking involved, and several coats of paint…
