Words cannot express how happy I am to be finished with this project.
You can check out my last 3 posts if you are curious about the process,
or want to see the products I’m using.
Here was before:
Whites can be warm, cool, bright, or mellow, so they are tricky, at least they were for me this time.
I sprayed on a few different colors to get the right one for this room.
Ben Moore Acadia White was a nice, creamy white,
but it was a little too white for the vibe of this room.
Bone White was very pretty, but too brown next to the white in the stripes on the wall.
But Linen White….just right.
It is a soothing, creamy white with mild yellow undertones.
It works well in a farmhouse/cottage decor.
(BM Mayonnaise was a close contender and a bit lighter than Linen White.)
I took the liberty of distressing the edges before the kids had the chance, and used Ben Moore Stays Clear in low sheen for the final finish.
Edit: next time I will use Varathane in semi-gloss.
A simple basket holds current projects.
Up next: Kevin built an open laundry shelf for the washer and dryer to sit on that I have left to paint. He even offered to do a guest post/tutorial, so keep an eye out if you are interested in building one!
