This is our 3-step plan :)
Monday: move-in small stuff, paint trim
Tuesday: continue to move in small stuff, paint our bedroom, dining/living area
Wednesday: movers will move our furniture, paint kitchen
Here are the colors we have chosen so far:
For the trim - Behr's Swiss Coffee - it's an off-white, couldn't find a sample picture online (semi-gloss)
Bedroom - Behr's Gulf Winds - the blueish color (eggshell)
Living/Dining Room - Behr's Comforting - the tan/brown/pink color (eggshell)
I still need to pick a color for the kitchen - hence why I've "scheduled" that room for Wednesday! I'm thinking either a green or a blue (maybe a purple if I'm feeling really daring). It will connect with the comforting color and will also be on one wall in the dining room.
I will be sure to take before and
Not quite sure how I will be painting tomorrow. I think I did too much research and am overwhelmed with all the different techniques! I've heard it's best to wipe everything down with a TSP cleaner and to mix the paint with some sort of paint thinner so that it stays wetter on the walls. BUT the guy at Home Depot told me it's not really necessary and he just paints right from the can (well after he pours it into the paint roller thingy). Really, Home Depot guy...now I'm just confused. I also can't decide if I should tape or rely on my cutting skills/a wet rag to fix my mistakes! lol Any suggestions?
