I’ve wanted to paint the boys’ room for some time. It was on the “to-do” list that kept growing instead of shrinking.
The boys were rooting for blue, but in order to match what we already have, it would have been navy blue or a light blue. Light blue would have needed a primer coat and I was afraid of it approaching the dreaded country blue that I don’t much care for. Navy would have been too dark, especially for a smaller room.
Being the brilliant man that he is, James recommended red. It matches all of the boys’ bedding and wouldn’t need a primer coat since the mauve on the walls (before shot above) would be a perfect base layer.
So, around lunchtime yesterday, I declared that a trip to the hardware store was a necessity to buy paint. James was working from home, so he kindly moved the furniture for me and by dinnertime, I had applied two coats of red paint.
The boys couldn’t be happier with the results.
