Painting was time-consuming — but worth it.
The entire painting process was a learning curve for Janine, as it took her a long time to land on bright colors that would work in the north-facing room and a long time to do the physical work. “It’s a huge room and took a couple of weeks,” Janine says.
After lots of painting throughout the whole room, she recommends investing in quality painting tape. Janine used Frog Tape, which she made sure to seal before painting. “Paint with the original paint color to seal it,” Janine explains. “Then, once you’ve painted the color you want, remove the tape when it’s wet.”
Factoring in paint, which Janine was gifted, the entire renovation process cost just under £800 (roughly $974).
