This week has just flown by! Do you ever have weeks like this? Between this painting project in my dining room and a little one sick, it's been a bit crazy around here! But I am glad to say I have about finished with the painting, with some touch up left. Do you remember what I said about the ceilings, thinking it would seem easy after all the other (more difficult) ceiling projects I'd done? Well, after painting five coats of paint on the ceiling~ yes, five~ I am feeling SO done with anything having to do with the ceiling! (At least for now!)
The reason for the five coats of paint is that the first color I put on the ceiling was the light, light shade of same yellow I put on the walls. It was pretty, but I wasn't sure about it. I did a coat of yellow on the walls and knew it wouldn't work to have the light yellow ceilings. Then I rolled Valspar's white paint, but it was too gray of a white. Their "Ultra White" is a much better white. Living in the Northwest, we see enough gray~ I don't want it in my dining room! :) Now the ceilings are a sparkling white, and the walls are one shade brighter yellow than before...Still not 100% sure I love it, but I think it's growing on me. I have painted a lot of different colors since living here, and have rarely loved a paint color immediately. I give it a week or two, and if I still am unhappy with it, then I know it's time to change it! :)
I haven't been able to finish my "secret" project yet. I removed the part that wasn't working and bought the craft item I needed to finish though!
Tomorrow is Sunday, which means I will have some time in the afternoon to finish this up. (If all goes well!) If I do finish it tomorrow, I'll try to swing on by and show!
I hope your weekend has been a fabulous one so far! :) I'm excited to visit you all in the next few days, and catch up on all you have been up to! Have a great night! :)
