We've been busy bees painting in the front room and it finally looks like progress had been made, yay! Christmas Eve we spent nearly the entire day painting 4 different kinds of white on the walls and ceiling. Can you handle that excitement?
First up: the bookcases
Let me tell you, painting two coats of Behr Ultra Pure White Semi Gloss in those 2 built in bookcases was not fun (usually we don't use Behr, but we already had it from past projects so we decided to finish it up)
White number 2? Chris finished priming the other two ceiling bays with our Glidden primer
And once he was done with that he started painting the ceiling color, Glidden's "Ceiling Paint" which is a bit more flat so we like that it doesn't have much sheen
And oh yeah, it goes on pink
But the most exciting white we painted? The fireplace detail, eeeeee!!!!
OMG the beautiful difference that high gloss makes :)
I painted a bit of the detail on the lower part as well
Look at the difference between the gross dirty white before and the new high gloss white
(we're hoping to demo that remaining non-high gloss white area and tile it because it's buckling)
And more exciting news? Gray has finally made an appearance! But I'll save that for later this week, we've got to get back to painting! :)
