After talking it over with Jack (who is just the cutest lil’ thing) they decided they would like to do a room with Buffalo Bill colors. Maggie was all over it! Even though she is a die- hard Dolphins fan, you can still find her cheering for the Bills on any given Sunday. Plus, most of the time we get the task of redoing a girls rooms (which I totally am all over)so when she had the opportunity to do “boy stuff” she was pumped!
The center line was going to be the navy blue, with thinner red stripes, so in order to achieve that look and save ourselves time; we painted the red up higher, taped off the lines (using Frog Tape) and painted the rest in blue. When the tape was pulled off it revealed two smaller red lines. Painting the base coat of red higher made it easier for us because we didn’t have to try to go back and paint within the lines.
I found with acrylic painting you always have to work from the bottom up. You really have to think through your design and plan it before you start; otherwise you’re going to create a lot of extra painting for yourself.
It’s always thrilling to be part of a home make-over, especially when it’s a couple’s first home. The joy of picking out colors and decorating is heightened and it brings extra pleasure to our job. Over the next week or so, we are going to be taking a walk through “Jamie’s” home (we painted the whole inside). Today, we are going to show you before and after pics of the daughter’s bedroom and bathroom makeover.
