Steve and I are in the middle of a mini-basement makeover. Remember, here we started laying tile in our basement. We ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT and will be grouting starting tomorrow night. Wish us luck--we have over 500 square feet of tile to grout (Steve and I).
Before we put down the tile, I decided to re-paint the guest room. It was this horrible purple color and it needed a major up-date.
|The nasty BEFORE COLOR!|
|I pulled all the baseboards off the wall (and we have since decided to replace with thicker boards).|
|I picked-up my Hardee's un-sweet iced tea, and slapped on my plastic gloves (great for painting)!|
|I decided to go with Glidden semi-gloss white paint.|
The following are the painting progression photos...
|I started by cutting the edge. Because the ceiling was white (taping was not necessary) and honestly, I NEVER TAPE. I just take my time.|
|Coat One done! ONE MORE TO GO!|
|Two coats on. We are replacing the windows. Also, the trim still needs paint.|
And, here is where we are at with the tile. WISH US LUCK ON GROUT!
More updates coming this week (hopefully)!
