After finishing the primer in the basement, we thought we were ready for color. Little did I know that our color choice would turn out to be unsuitable. The color we had picked for the main part of the basement appeared too dark. Back to the drawing board!
We stopped by Lowe's, HD, Sherwin Williams, and Benjamin Moore, as well as the many of your build threads. We literally evaluated hundreds of colors. We even picked up a bunch of samples of the ones that we liked the best:
These were on the wall in the basement for a week or so while we tried to figure out which we liked best in all of the different lighting. We knew we wanted a neutral tone. The wife really liked Bill M's blue color, but in the end, we kept gravitating to hues of brown.
We even picked up samples of Craig (StrangeBrew) and Blaxxima's colors. In the end, we decided on Brown Bag (Blaxxima's room color) and an antique white for the ceiling.
We picked up 11 gallons to do both the ceiling and walls, and hope to get started on it today.
In addition, we started tiling the shower:
Since I didn't get started until after 8:00pm, I didn't get much done. I did however, remember how much I don't like carrying boxes of tile. I carried 14 boxes of tile to the basement (through the house...the basement doors are covered in preparation for painting).
Question for you...when I spray one color on the ceiling and a different one on the walls, is there a special order I need to take to get this done? I think I'll spray 2 coats on the ceiling first then work on the walls. Has anyone sprayed both? How did you do it?
