Have you ever painted/papered a wall that you immediately disliked the moment you were finished?? This is my wall:
That was my second attempt on this wall. At first, when we started the basement project, I wanted to just hurry up and paint it to be done. I painted it BM Raisin Torte 2083-10.
It was ok, but I thought it was just too boring. So then I convinced my husband to help me wallpaper which was a BIG mistake on my part. As I told you at the end of my last post here , I disliked the wallpaper the minute it was up. Too loud for me. My husband did not like it either! He refused to help me with the wall anymore (but honey, it has been about 5 months already! haha). But I knew how bad I wanted it off so I began to scrap off the paper:
Bringing back any memories of your own scraping? And then 11 hours later, the wall was finally clean and clear!
Ta Da! My hands hurt really bad even as I type this , but I was very happy to get it done over the weekend. The painting came next- that was the easy part!
This is the new Ben Moore ‘Color Stories’ baltic sea cs-310. I wanted to use the new paint and check out the results for myself. I had it mixed with the Aura formula and as usual, the paint went on so smooth and easy. Drying time was only one hour between coats. And with the promise of a rich, beautiful shade here, the texture and depth was better than I could have imagined. It is a beautiful color product.
The first painted picture above is a more accurate color representation. It is more of a tealy blue. It is beautiful! I am done with this wall! (for now… )
Have you ever disliked the color that you were painting right away? Did you paint/paper over it right away? Or did you live with it for awhile like me and tell yourself it is not so bad…
I just loved the new BM ‘Color Stories’ paint. It really is a step beyond what we expect in a paint, very rich and gorgeous. Hope you get a chance to use soon!
