Bathroom renovations- Painting DONE!
Since I didn't have to work Friday, I bit the bullet to finish the painting. The oil-based paint (Kilz odorless- and it WAS odorless) went on very nicely. I'm not a taper, because I've taped a room and then found the paint to 'sneak' under the tape, so I go REALLY careful and I also use a tiny paintbrush to fill in the edges around the trim. AND I had to hold UP myglasses doing near the ceiling, because I have bi-focals and it's a b---- to try and focus ABOVE the bi-focal, so I was holding the glasses up high! You'll see when you get to the final color photos.
Here is the first coat of primer... I had them tint the paint to a softer color of what I thought was my final color (or close to it-didn't have the paint swatch with me). I actually like the color, but it won't go with my towels. Actually, looking at this photo makes me think of a robot for some reason. Picasso-style. LOL
Okay, it's not too bad. just bright/dark. Much darker/brighter than I've ever done before.
