I vote a big negatory on that one. All rational thought says that it should be, but my experience says otherwise. Less square footage should equal less paint and time, and maybe it does, but it feels like so, so much longer and harder. Perception is everything, right?
This is a tiny 1/2 bath on my first floor, I blogged about it, here. Originally wallpapered, I painted it a few years ago with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®, Graphite and Old White, using this stencil. After removing the wallpaper, the walls were in less than pristine condition, and I wanted to camouflage that with pattern. It actually worked very well.
But it’s time for a change and I’m dying to paint walls and a room with my new found love, Pure & Original Paint. A small room seems like a great place to start. But I have these vague memories of just the opposite. Dripping paint, stepping in the roller tray, accidentally swiping newly painted walls with my arm or brush, and finally knocking over the paint can. No room to move and maneuver, no room for tools, especially when you add a ladder to the cramped space. You can see why I hesitate to go through it again.
I’ve chosen my color from the gorgeous Pure & Original color palette, but can’t quite decide between the Fresco Lime Paint, which I love. And the Marrakech Wall paint which I also really, really love, but with which I have far less experience. Please feel free to weigh in with your opinion in the comment section.
Blogging about projects, even ones in the planning stages, makes me feel committed. I now have a responsibility to follow through. So wish me luck and I will keep you posted:)
