Well, it's been quite a job, but I finally got the entire wainscoting in the family room painted and I'm very excited! But let me just stop a moment to say this: I officially hate latex paint! Okay, I'm exaggerating, I don't really hate it at all, but I've had LOTS of problems with it peeling and stretching lately. Part of it is my own fault, I admit, but the other part is all the paint...I promise! Anyways, the point here is that I think I shall try and avoid using latex paint for any more big jobs I do.
Alright, back to my excitement. Despite the problems with the latex paint, I'm really satisfied with the outcome.
Here is a before shot. You only get a little peek, because I'm saving the real "before" shots for the big reveal when the room is finished.
Here are some after shots:
You'll notice my table and decorations from the previous post have now been moved to their proper home.
And more, because I'm out of control with my camera...
I'm very, very pleased with the direction this room is headed, and I can't wait to get to work on my next project for it. And speaking of my next project...
I'm planning on painting all of the bookcase seen above white, except for the back paneling, because I want a bit of contrast. Unfortunately I'm a little unsure of what color to paint the paneling. I don't really want to paint it a color (although I'm not eliminating it completely) and I'm not sure grey would work considering there are other walls in the room that are tan. If any of you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate hearing them!
Thanks so much for reading!
