Hi Everyone. Most of you know that follow along with my decor crazy blog that we moved into the new place just about 6 weeks ago and we have been painting every inch of this place. We left the "Fireman Cave" basement alone since it was the identical gray to Terry's old office in the other house. We liked that gray with all his fire stuff.
Ok with all of that said the previous owners liked flat paint and that in my book is a no go!!!! Flat paint just shows all the flaws and is not easy to clean.
They had twin 2 year old boys and a 5 years old so you can imagine the walls going up and down the stairs.
At 2am one morning you know when all those creative ideas flow!!!! At least for me that seems to be when it happens!
I thought hmmm maybe painting that stair case down to the fireman cave might be a good idea since the walls looks so bad. Maybe using a lighter shade of gray would lighten things too. I usually wake Terry when I get a brilliant idea in the middle of the night but I thought maybe a better approach for more painting in this house would be better after he had his morning coffee!!!!!
|I really like this gray. It is not too light and not too dark especially for going down to a basement.|
All this rain is bringing in some cooler temps for us. Woo Hoo it is only going to be high 70's this week end.
Hope your summer is going well. Enjoy the week end.
