With our crazy work schedules it’s important to keep as organized as possible when it comes to projects around the house, which means most projects are done in stages over a few days if I’m trying to get them done during the week.
This week, I very much wanted to get rid of our living room accent wall. I’ve been toying around with the idea of painting over it for months now and I’ve finally got a new idea for that room brewing so I needed to take the plunge.
Here’s how it went down:
- Thursday night: Pre-prep work (making sure I had everything on hand, gathering all my supplies into a pile).
- Friday night: Prep work (clearing all the furniture out of the walls, putting up painters tape, priming the wall with one coat).
- Saturday morning: 2 coats of Wheat Bread Behr paint, same as the rest of the room and a massive cleaning of the whole room when I was done (even the top of the fan!)
Ideally it would be best to do this project in just one day, but that doesn’t work for us so organizing it to make it as quick and painless as possible, without eating up an entire weekend day, is super important.
And what’s a post about paint colors without any before and after pictures?!
Do you have to spread your projects out over a few days or are you able to get them all done at once? Does the updated wall color make a difference to anyone but me?
