If our house were still on the market, I would not have chosen this color–it is quite vivid. 🙂 But I need vivid in the laundry room, and I think this color will keep me awake while I’m sorting lights from darks. 🙂
The hardest part about this job was removing the wallpaper. The regular wallpaper came down quite easily, but there were a few spots where I’d applied spray adhesive to keep the paper stuck to the wall. The spray adhesive did not want to surrender, so that took a bit of doing. Then the paint needed two coats (it wasn’t Benjamin Moore!), and then I needed to caulk around the little molding strip at the top–realized that my walls aren’t perfectly flat. (I think the dry wall guys got a little careless in the laundry room). Anyway, my caulking job was less than perfect, so I had to haul the ladder out yet again to apply one final coat around the molding.
But–ta da! Perfect or not, I will live with it until I don’t like it anymore, then I’ll simply paint again. I think those walls would also look nice in a nice shade of gold . . .
