Painting the Livingroom

With help from Karrie and my parents, i painted my:
  • living room
  • dining room
  • hallway
  • stairs
  • upstairs hallway
  • living room ceiling
  • front closet


It took 2 days and almost 4 cans of paint.

I was originally thinking of gray paint but after doing a bit of Photoshop drawings i thought that it would look very bland. Here's what it would have looked like.

But i decided to go with a type of tan with a satin finish. The room doesn't have a lot of light so the shinier finish would help to brighten the room.

Looks nice. Probably feels like a whole new house in there with all new paint.
