So, I talked to my mom the other day. She asked me if I had painted the bedroom black yet. Well, not exactly....
Why you ask?? Well, because decided to do it properly and started from the top- painting the ceiling first. Ugh. I started with one color of ceiling white, then switched brands to get the one with the pink colorant in it. Let me just say- of course- that they aren't the same color and I had to paint it twice.
Then, THREE STINKING coats on the walls, including cutting in around 5 doors and two windows, and wainscoting. I mean- seriously- what was I thinking??
Then came the time- do I paint the trim black? Nope, decided on white- the room is too small with too many doors to not end up dark and choppy.
The doors? They're going to be black.
The wainscoting? I'm undecided. So...
Enter the primer. Yes, this wood must be primed. Two coats of Kilz on FIVE doorframes. (Oh, did I mention I have a 5 gallon bucket of Kilz... yeah, that's how much painting this house needs. And, Kilz is not my fave, BIN is better.)
I have primed one of the windows. Believe it or not, I will totally finish the window before starting the other. Why? It gets light very early in Maine, like 0430-0445. So, you see my conundrum.
So, here's a few before pictures, wall by wall, so you can tell me what you think as far as the folding doors- black or white?
I will post some in-process pictures tomorrow. Stay tuned!!
