This first pic is closest to the actual color, the others were taken with an improper White Balance setting so they turned out very cold and dark. I didn't realize until I uploaded them. Ooops! Hey, at least I know what White Balance is, right? Go, me!Despite the color, I knew that I could make it work out fine. And it didn't stink like adhesive anymore, so that's neato. We also primed/painted the trim and doors:
Then I tried out a couple paint samples, including BM Hale Navy (middle square) and SW Gale Force (on the left).
I chose Hale Navy, matched in Sherwin Williams paint. Why? Because I thought the BM paint was a bit too runny when I did the dressing room. However, I actually like the finish of the BM Matte paint much better than the flat from Sherwin. And the Sherwin paint was about $10 more. And it still splattered all over the place! Anystupidpaintmanufacturers, after I was done yelling profanities and drowning my sorrows in a nice Port, I decided WHO THE HELL CARES anyway. It's done, I will live with it. And without further ado, here's a teaser of things to come!
I did it. For reals. It's almost black, and oh so cool. Full room shots coming next week!
