Dave was skeptical at first, but it really turned out well. For the color choices it was easy. I went with our lighter tan color, Valspar Lovely Buff that is in our living room (our LR isn't worthy of having its picture taken yet so you'll just have to wait and see) and Valspar Woodrow Wilson Linen which will be the color of our cabinets. The two colors complimented each other very well. We wanted even stripes so we followed John & Sherry's helpful post on how to paint chic and subtle horizontal stripes step by step. Dave had to do a little extra math because of our ceiling issue and with the help of our handy laser-leveler and painters tape, we now have a chic hallway. Here's the break down from start to finish.
Dave was getting a little tired of all the taping so I told him I would paint the but I didn't know he would catch me in the act of painting, bad picture I know. Thanks Babe.
We have Stripes!!!
Look at all the painter's tape we had to use, a trash can full. I feel wasteful.
Pretty cool, huh? All we need to do now is get a new light fixture. Oh, and I'm still crossing my fingers for hardwood flooring in the hallway, we shall see. Keep looking for more updates on the house and please comment! We would love see see what you think!
Happy Painting and Happy Weekend!
