I think I was a little upset last time I posted
today I am better.
I still have to paint the boys room, but I think i'll survive!
The floor are coming along nicely.
I choose Sweatshirt Gray and Gray Cloud for he floors, I am using Benjamin Moore's Porch and Floor paint.
The boy's like the stripe.
I choose to run the stripes horizontally to make the room look less long.
See the new color I tried beside the window?
It is the same light color on the floor, gray cloud.
it looks nothing like it does no the floor.
More of this later.
I painted the floor the solid darker sweatshirt gray first, ( after priming with Benjamin Moore's Fresh Start),
to help cover the knots.
I decided to put the white next, without taping.
I followed the natural lines of the wood.
Today I will put another coat of white and if that is enough, let it cure for a couple of days.
I will then tape and paint the last coat of sweatshirt gray.
Then it has to cure for about a week.
No driving on it until then.
That's what the back of the can says.
here are some color ideas for the walls....
I have decided that gray is out
this is Farrow and Ball's Farrow's cream. It looks slightly yellow.
It could work but ....
This is farrow and Ball's Borrowed Light
A slightly grayed bluish green..
This is one of my favorite colors;
Vintage Map by Martha Stewart.
It is a great neutral that is neither blue nor green. I have it in my kitchen.
I plan to share this with the boys and hopefully make some decisions.
I will be getting samples this time.The room is dark, with only one window and lots of trees outside.
And then again, I am also considering white walls.
I have never painted walls white.
but just perhaps, because there is color in the floor and because I plan to add color to the room...
What do you think?
