Phase Three of my bedroom makeover is to paint the walls, skirting and cornices.
Painting the bedroom walls was relatively easy (compared to the other tasks) and I was able to get everything painted in one day (with help from my mum). Thanks to the heat we have been getting, it should be dry in a day.
Before beginning the painting today, I spent some time the previous day vacuuming the walls and wiping them over with a damp cloth, to make sure all the dust was removed from the sanding.
Today I started by stirring the paint. I stirred it for about an hour to make sure it was mixed well.
Next I covered the floor in old sheets and material. It doesn’t look that attractive, but I am glad that I covered it, because there was drips!
After a few hours of painting, it was finally finished! The colour that I have painted is called Vivid White. It’s not a huge difference compared to the previous white, but it does give everything a fresh new feel.
However….. There might have been a slight spillage around the walls….. ?
I am hoping it’s not going to be a major task to get that excess paint off. Ideally I should have done it while it was still wet… Heh.
Up next is phase four, the final step. Decorating! I still have to buy a new bed, mattress, side table lamps, mirror and a few other finishing touches. It’s going to be a lot of fun. ?
- What colour walls do you have in your bedroom?
- What colour walls would you love to have (if you can’t change the colour)?
- Do you like all walls the same colour, or a feature wall that is another colour?
