Painting The Ceiling

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 12, 2009

is no fun!


Note: Ceiling paint goes on PINK but dries white. Don’t worry! haha.


Tonight’s challenge: Find a colour for Eric and I to paint our living room!

Living room (Click to enlarge):


Note: We are replacing the carpet with walnut hardwood flooring. We will also likely paint the crown moulding white.

Any ideas?? :)

Bonus if you send me a link to a picture of a painted room that you think would look great in here!! :) We are really stuck with this room!!!

Back to your regular scheduled programming tomorrow AM. :)

In tomorrow morning’s post I will show you my raw granola bar- Attempt #2! Did they work???

I’m thinking that the wall opposite the window should be a vibrant blue, and the rest, bright white, kind of like this:

i love that you guys do all this stuff yourselves AND together! painting normally isn’t horribly fun, but at least you have someone to paint with!

Wow, you have tall ceilings! I like a beige colour for walls, but I am a bit boring :)


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 12, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Mara- wow that blue is COOL and so unexpected!

Your home is beautiful, I have no clue what I would do with that room. Wish you the best of luck.

This blog has zillions of decorating ideas – it’s one of my favorite diversions!

I agree with Mara! Go with something bright or another contrasting colour on one wall.. how cool would that look!

I love the yellow color at the top of this post of KT’s link:

The blue is fantastic, too!

No ideas on paint…but wow that is some terrible carpet.

I think you should paint it restoration hardwares silver sage. Heres a link to what it looks like on the walls.

I have no idea what you want to do with your room color wise, but my living room is Behr Wickerware and I love it, and a few people have painted rooms in their house this color after seeing mine.

How about a sage green color? I have that on two walls in my living room, with white trim, it looks nice and peaceful!


Liz May 13, 2009 at 9:38 am

How about a warm saffron yellow?

Do you guys blast the music and just have an awesome time painting and jamming? Because that’s what I’d TOTALLY do. Is it a good arm/shoulder workout? Because i bet painting a ceiling would leave my shoulders sore…


Jo @ Seeking Healthy Balance May 13, 2009 at 5:28 pm

Wow I love your house, its got so much character! I think contrasting walls would look great as you have the space to carry it off!
