After a fun visit from my God-Son Winston on his spring break, we decided to tackle painting the guest room. I asked him how he slept , and he told me that there were too many pillows on the bed to get comfortable… I’m pretty sure he has never slept on a bed with decorative pillows before, and since when is 11 pillows too many ?
Other than the bathrooms and garage, this is the last room in the house to get paint ….and the gloss white walls have really been glaring at me lately. Now, at some point the room had been painted fluorescent green, not Kelly green, not even chartruse…actual freaking nuclear meltdown green. It seemed to glow from the poorly painted corners, and the floor moulding where the quarter round had never been replaced after the previous owner installed the hardwood floor. I just happened to have enough quarter round in the garage…and the chop saw is by far my favorite thing that the old owner left behind.
We took everything out, even the ceiling fan… I love a crisp white ceiling,…… and painted the entire room a fresh khaki with gloss white trim….just like every other room (except the office, which is a cool blue ). I even gave the bed and side table a new coat of gloss black. The curtains are drop cloths from Home Depot , grometted with shower curtain rings to plumbing pipe.
