Next up in the before-and-after series, the upstairs hallway and guest room. These two areas didn’t need much. A little TLC in the paint department, and they were looking fresh again.
Before, with the same mustard-color wall paint:
We repainted the ceilings, trim, walls, and stair balusters in the hallway. Wall paint: Benjamin Moore Natural Linen. Trim and stair balusters: Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White. Ceiling: Behr’s ceiling paint in the standard white base color.The carpet was steam cleaned.And we traded out the old light fixtures for new, neutral ones.Guest room before:
This room had a purple wall color over a damaged wall. They had removed a border of wallpaper around the center of the room’s walls, but didn’t do a very good job, so the wall had to be repaired in numerous spots, and then repainted. Also, there was peanut butter and jelly on the walls and trim. And an old light fixture. And a stained ceiling.
We repaired the walls and then repainted them Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments. The trim, doors, and ceiling were repainted too, and the carpet steam cleaned. The light fixture was replaced with a new ceiling fan and light. The door hardware was also updated.
