I am working on some fun projects. I just helped a family finish their lower level. They had a big old entertainment center that was solid oak. We donated the top portion and decided to re-purpose the cabinet base. We primed the wood and painted it with a warm cocoa ebony color. The final step will be to paint a gel stain over the painted wood.
I recently received a call from a frustrated female who just couldn’t get the paint color right in her great room. She confessed that she had her husband paint the room three times with slightly different colors and was still unhappy.
Tip for selecting a paint color: The lighting in your home is the best place to match samples, but as a starting point you can bring an item from the room with you, such as a pillow. When you’re in the paint store, take the paint swatches and your fabric sample from home over to the window to see them in natural light. I’ve even stepped outside if the store has tinted windows.
Who says they should be white?
We can add glaze to bring out a shimmering effect that will warm up the entire space.
A new ceiling can dramatically change the look of your room.
