I have been busy working on a whole house project, and here's a "before" photo to give you an idea.
I hope to soon have some photos of the progress being made.
This entire home has been painted in this color and other similar dark semi-gloss paints. The "idea" was to match the wall color to the living room floor tile shown. I KNOW that paint is the quickest fix, and most "bang for the buck", but every room that gets paint in this house, and every dark brown curtain panel that I take down surprises even me. It gets more cheerful each day.
So, my advice for today is: semi-gloss paint is for doors and trim. Flat paint is for walls.
