Painting by the Numbers

Four walls.

Three coats of tinted primer, per wall.

One final coat of paint in the final color, per wall.

Plus touch-ups.

I’m almost halfway through painting the Barbie Pink Bedroom to a soothing French Lilac.

Photos when I finish… I have to work in sections and go slowly, or my back gives out.

    My daughter’s room is that horrid pink with horrider green trim. She wanted a green room but her grandmother who paid for the paint said green was a horrible color and made her do pink with green trim. Grandmother doesn’t know to choose color (as in go with the palest tint and then test it on the wall.)

    So I will likely have to paint the room over. Ugh.

      Kate, you have my sympathies. I highly recommend using tinted primer. Good luck! : )
