When the Walls Come Tumbling Down, Part II: Paint. DIY Bedroom Redo

The Morning After…over 9 hours spent painting the bedroom yesterday: Ceiling, walls, trim, and decorative element. Shoulders, neck, back and obliques sore and achy, but it was worth it. How very satisfying to have such a major part of the redo done!…

Today I’ll do touch-ups, finish repainting the hanging lamp, and start in on sewing the duvet, pillows and curtains. Still need to figure out what to do for new bedside tables (I hate the old ones!) and pick up a few odds and ends. I’ll be making a trip to the Habitat for Humanity warehouse on Thursday and will hopefully find what I need, super cheap. There are many projects still ahead, including painting a large mirror, rehabbing a large dresser, repainting a pair of hanging lamps for the bedside, and more. I am so looking forward to having the bedroom finished! Bedroom paint is Behr Premium paint/primer in “Anonymous”, eggshell finish walls and hi gloss in the trim. The ceiling and decorative element are true white in eggshell. (see “When the Walls Come Tumbling Down, Part I HERE)


Bedroom Before, purple and lavender.


Plastering finished, what a messy job!
