So, I mentioned to you all that last week I was highly motivated to paint my bed after I had stopped at Home Depot to get the paint. I finished my “work list” that Ry had for me and now it is time for the bed!! The first thing I have to mention is that I never knew how many whites there are to choose from!! If you ever go to a paint store, check it out…it’s crazy!! It will make anyone second guess themselves. I decided to go with the Behr ultra, primer + paint in Decorator’s White. I chose this color because it was actually a little warmer than the stark white, but yet didn’t appear cream. I have white bedding and didn’t want that to look dingy if my bed was too white so I had to be careful. Anyway, decorators white won, and I was quite happy with it.
So, my plan of attack was to paint the bed during my kids naps. 2 reasons: 1.) No munchkins to get in the way, and 2.) No husband to yell at me when I paint the bed on the carpet in my bedroom!! (Have I mentioned I’m a little lazy at moving furniture too?)
So, here’s how the project started…
Hard to believe that this is coat #2. I was a little impatient (imagine that) and didn’t wait the total 4 hours it takes before you can repaint. So, needless to say it took 4 coats!! Ahh!! Also, I didn’t have any little roller pads left so I did it all with my ever faithful Purdy brush. I think I have carpal tunnel after this project!
So just a little reminder, this is what the bed looked like before there were 4 coats of decorators white paint on it!
