Weekend Update: Ceiling Paint

March 25, 2013 — 2 Comments

I wish I could say that I did something awesome with ceiling paint this weekend, like this:

But sadly I just did a few boring touch-ups. I moved into this house 14.5 months ago and all of these ‘spots’ have been on my to-do list for oh about 14.25 months. Thankfully, the previous owners left a gallon of ceiling paint in the basement which I finally made myself go down and get this weekend.
It was ridiculously rusty but the paint inside was still good-to-go after a vigorous shaking (I should have taken it into a hardware store to have it shaken in that machine-thing, but ain’t nobody got time for that).
So after shaking it up, I got my trusty 2″ angled brush and I got to work on those spots.
Spot #1
This spot on the living room ceiling has been there since I moved in and since denial is my best friend I like to think that this spot got there magically and that there is no underlying issue. After a few coats of paint…
Okay, so it’s still pretty┬ánoticeable, but at least there isn’t that ugly yellow ring in the middle.
Spot #2

See that really hideous yellow ring around the dining room chandelier? Yeah, that’s been there for a long time. I should have used one of those decorative caps when I had the light installed, but live and learn right?

Much better! I’m so happy that I finally took 10 minutes to do this. I hope no one noticed it before so I don’t expect anyone to notice it now, but I know and sometimes that is all that matters.
Spot #3

This is the kitchen light which I actually did buy a decorative cap for, but sadly, it was too small. Oh well, I knew a little paint would make it look better I just didn’t think it would take me 14.25 months to do.

So that was my big weekend project (just kidding it only took me like 30 minutes).
Did you get any projects done this weekend?

  1. I got nothing done this weekend. Lol. Except cover the dozen paint swatches I’ve painted all over my house because I’m having the toughest time picking paint colors. I swear I’ve gone to home depot and purchased a million paint swatches. I need to be more decisive with paint colors like you.
