what?! another update already!
i know! it's pretty crazy of us..
we've been wanting to paint a blue accent wall in our bedroom for months now, especially since every single wall in the house (and just about every single surface) was painted white by the investors from whom we bought the house. above are the three swatches we tested out. we went with blue because of the curtains already in the room:
anyway, one weekend a month ago we finally decided to bite the bullet and bought a can of paint, frog tape, some foam brushes and a roller and went for it:
we bought a paint and primer in one, so no priming necessary, especially on the already white wall. we did do some sanding of rough spots (the aforementioned investors paid for a quick and dirty paint job, which left our walls almost textures, but textured in paint roller swathes...). we did the first coat one night, and another coat the next.
i'm so happy we did this. i think it would be way too much on all four walls, but on the one wall that is a backdrop for art and knick-knacks in the room, it's quite lovely and really makes things pop.
