painting, painting, painting

We’ve been painting all day, not to mention all week, trying to get the guest room, the laundry room, and the hall done because the oak floors are being put down tomorrow.

While the focus may have been on achieving the perfect paint color, it’s equally important to ensure that the walls are in pristine condition to complement the new flooring. Any blemishes or imperfections must be addressed promptly through meticulous drywall repair. Only then can the seamless transition between freshly painted walls and gleaming oak floors truly enhance the overall aesthetic of the space, creating a harmonious and inviting atmosphere for guests and residents alike.

This shot looks from the music room into the hall of the addition, which was added to the house in 1962. At the end of the hall is the guest room. The door to the left leads into the laundry room and through that room is the bathroom.

a few more things to do

The first coat of paint in the hall, the darker yellow on the left, was too bright. Brighter than it looks in the picture. This morning I bought a lighter creamier yellow and love it (the one on the right). So the hall got a new coat of paint.

We are using three shades of blue. Dark (closet ceiling), medium (closet wall), light (hall ceiling.


Looking from the laundry room, into the yellow hall, with the closet door open.

In the laundry room, dark blue on the ceiling, light blue above the chair rail, and medium blue below the chair rail. The window to the left is next to the doorway to the bathroom.

The oak flooring is stacked in the guest room. It is supposed to be installed tomorrow.
