After one marathon of a weekend, there are now three rooms in the house that have been painted. One of which has been painted twice.
You may remember a Saturday night wherein I picked out all of the colors for the Full bath under the influence of alcohol. Guys, how many times do I have to say it? Don’t drink and DIY.
And actually, wait a minute, tell me I’m crazy here but monitor calibration aside, does this look pink to you?
About fifteen years ago my step-mother redecorated the great room in the house I grew up in. She picked a nice beige for the walls, a coordinating color for the “sheers” over the windows, and one day I came home and found myself in the middle of what we affectionately referred to as The Passion Pit until the walls could be repainted a week later.
Call it karma for the “passion pit” remark, but after I painted all for walls of the bathroom this lovely neutral hue, I stood back to look at it and what came to mind was…
Holy crap, I just painted my walls pink.
In theory I have way too much stuff to do to be repainting the walls, but even if it meant sacrificing a few more hours of sleep… it had to be done.
The new color is Maritime White and it looks 1000% less pink.
You can really tell in the after picture, right?
This may be my favorite thing I’ve ever posted to this website. A before and after picture, both of which look white and exactly the same. You’re just going to have to trust me, things are much better in there now, and hey bonus, I can actually sleep at night. If I had time, that is.
Next step is painting the leftover rough sawn cedar 1x for the bottom half of the walls. I expect things will be much more exciting then… I mean, there will be a saw involved so there’s always the off chance that I lose a finger.
