We’ve lived in our house for about 5 1/2 years now and there was only one room we had never repainted in that time. We did almost the whole upper floor of our house, and unfortunately the finished basement after the “Great Flood of 2010” (post on that to come soon), but we had never done the guest room.
Tara randomly decided that she wanted to do this room over February vacation, which she would have off work. I thought it would be nice to finally have it done, so in the span of a few days we picked out the paint, bought it and got the room prepped.
I’m really helpful. The only part I did was spackle and sand the walls. Tara washed, taped and painted everything herself while I was at work each day. She even took the opportunity to sand and paint the dresser and nightstand we have in that room. We don’t yet have anything to decorate yet, but we bought a small sample of paint that Tara is going to use to paint a canvas eventually. We chose the colors we did by bringing the comforter from the bed to pick our palette.
Enjoy our before and afters!
