Hot off the heels of successfully adding color to the house via the pantry, I was ready to paint something else. It is an addiction, just like spray paint. I get to painting and don't want to stop. So, this time I painted the back of the built-ins the same blue color from the pantry - a girl's gotta get the most out of a $5 can of miss matched paint. These built-ins are located in the sun room. And the back of them is only visible when you are in the sun room, so it isn't like there is a large blue spot painted on the wall. Behold the boring-in-need-of-some-organizing built-ins:
I don't know what got into me, but I taped off the built-ins. I never use tape and just cut in when I paint. But I thought it might be easier to use the tape. Guess what, it is not!
Sure it was easy to paint with the tape, but when the tape was removed, the lines were wavy and blotchy.
I want crisp lines. So I had to cut in with the brush anyways. Now I know why I never use tape.
Anyways, enough about that. On to the finished picture:
Much better. The color is much more fun and works really well for a sun room. I also did a little shelf rearranging and organizing. I used a tray to corral the liquor bottles and make a mini bar area.
The best part...this makeover was free! And I still have plenty of paint left over for another project! What should I paint next?
