Before, During, and After

One of the spare rooms in my house was previously home to a sticker-happy little girl.  There were stickers everywhere.  Little. Flower. Stickers.  They were on the walls, above the closet, on the blade of the ceiling fan.  I have no idea how a little girl could even get to some of these places.

Before- Bright crayon ORANGE

Kilz is the only thing I could come up with that even had a chance of covering this crazy color.  You can’t go wrong with something called Hide-All.  Worth a shot anyway.  I’d say that it did a pretty good job.  This is after just two coats of primer.  I’m impressed with it.

During- Two coats of Kilz primer covers almost all of the orange nightmare

I attempted to paint over the already poorly painted trim but it didn’t go well and I ended up stripping the whole room.  Not really fun… even for a picker like me.  But I like how it turned out and I’m glad that I decided against pulling the carpet.  Now, onto the next project.

After- A nice work space that won't blind the senses
