Next Project - North Upstairs Bedroom, 17 x 13
At the right top is a circle to a half chimney (place for the wood stove used to heat this room a long, long time ago).
Northeast corner. The walls have a fair amount of cracks to be repaired with durabond, web tape, and our standard two skim coats of plaster with sanding in between coats. Primed with Zinzer 1-2-3, and finally two coats of color. The end result is a wall finish that feels like b-u-t-t-e-r.
COLOR - Lots of room for something dramatic. I feel comfortable re-using the divine red from the dining room. Or, I could go very neutral with painting wide dark cream stripes, alternating eggshell/semi-gloss finish. I have a great black/cream toile thick comforter that would look good. Then again, there's something exciting about painting a dark blue and crisp white trim. Lots of possibilities--I just haven't decided.
