Thanks for your comments on the Canvas Art yesterday…I do love that picture of Babygirl. It really shows her personality, and I think the quirky shot keeps it from looking like a shrine to her.
Okay, so remember when I so cleverly thought I’d add a white stripe around the top perimeter of her room, to give the illusion of crown molding? I assumed all white paints were created equal…Ahem.
Turns out they aren’t. So that hot mess left me with no choice but to paint the ceiling. The plus side was I loved the idea of a color on the ceiling (aka the fifth wall), but would have never painted it without major incentive.
Well, I sucked it up this weekend and got ‘er done!
Because of ‘Part 2’ of the Faux Crown Molding (which I’ll show you this week), I didn’t have to be super careful when cutting in around the wall (for real this time!), so it went surprisingly fast.
I chose Sisal by Martha Stewart, color matched to Home Depot Behr Paint + Primer flat finish. It’s a beautiful, warm khaki color…kind of like, well, a sisal rug! And I’m not all that proud of my vents and switch plates, so I tend to paint them to camouflage.
But after all that (it really wasn’t that bad), it was SO worth it! The difference in the room is amazing.
Now I’ve got to do something about that light fixture! Have you ever painted a ceiling? Any Golden Nuggets you care to share with the class?
Update: See the final ceiling with crown molding here!
