There is almost a white palette to work with!
Hello Dear Friends! It has been a week or so since I last posted studio progress... so here goes...
The ceilings and trim in both rooms are now primed & the walls in one room are primed... I ran out of primer (after 3 gallons) and will be stopping at the store in the morning for more...but it does feel so good to be this far!
These walls (and ceiling) are far from being "perfect". They still have a tremendous amount of imperfections on them... but maybe it won't matter too much after the rooms are filled with furniture... hooked rugs, needlepunch, and samplers. I plan to do a texture paint technique on the walls... haven't decided yet if they will be dry brushed or ragged, but they will be painted in two shades. In fact, I finally picked out my shades of tan today. It was tough because so many paint samples seemed too pink, too green, too gray, or too blue. All I wanted was tan! Well, these are what I have picked...
Mocha Cafe, Whisper of White, and Ashbury
The darkest shade will be the porch paint for the floors. The lighter two will be the wall colors. The lightest will be painted on the ceiling alone - not textured. The trim in all rooms will be off-white (different from the paint samples) - mainly because the replacement windows we installed are white vinyl & I can't change that.
Thanks for letting me share... and supporting me and all my remodeling efforts. The kind words you have all offered have meant so much. Thank you!
Wishing you all warm smiles...
