Bye Bye Blues

by Kay~Kacey on 2/3/2011

Yep, the horrible screen-saver-blue room at the Love Nest? It’s gone. Bit the dust.

Note to self…be conveniently gone the next time we have a brightly colored room to repaint into a soft cream color. Just saying.

Two coats of primer…and still the blue showed through. :wallbash:

So we painted it a nice, warm cream color. Going to go with a beachy theme in that room with a few pops of teal as accents. Some beach photos on the walls. It’s going to be lovely. No, I didn’t take photos of the finished paint job because I’m waiting to get the bedspread on the bed and pretty the room up a bit. I have a cute worn blue teal wooden chair we’re going to put in there, and I think I’ll paint a bed table teal.

Anyway, the best part of the two day paint job? The end of it…

It sounds like the new space will look beautiful and relaxing. :) FWIW, when I painted over the deep red wine color in my new studio space, I used a product by Behr that was a paint and primer in one. One coat of primer and two coats of paint was what it ended up taking to fully cover.

Loved reading this. And hearing the gladness in your voice.
