I was given a heads up that there were dogs, cats and chickens. When you live on a road called "Hop City", you have to live up to that name.
When I first walked in the house, I thought the job was going to be removing all the wallpaper. I knew there was a couple of things/areas that the homeowner wanted to have done, depending on overall cost. But, I'm glad removing the wallpaper wasn't one because it was in good shape and thought it went well with the house. The major part of the job turned out to be painting 12 doors and the trim in same areas.
The color we were matching it with was already used in most of the house. Unfortunately, the can was very old and the name was faded. The can had some paint smeared on the side, so I ripped it off and brought it to Colorize to match it. I think it turned out great and wish I knew the original color name.
The crown moulding in the photo below is the color being matched - the doors and trim beneath are the new painted surfaces. The paint is Regal Select in semi-gloss.
Before and After
The first photo shows the old trim color and the some doors looking faded and grainy. The second floor ceiling was also part of the job and needed a few minor repairs. The lighting is dim, so a nice white ceiling helps reflect more light and give a fresh feel.
More to be Done
I'll be returning at some point to finish a hall (photo), fix a hole in the wall, paint a mudroom and maybe some other stuff?!
And when I return, I'll have these two keeping me company.
