What do you picture when you think of the word cozy? Most of us think of blankets and candles, but I also think "cozy" is an essence. To me it's a wrapped in warmth feeling, which is
exactly the feel I set out to create in my foyer. Luckily, I was well on my way to achieving the look of the inspiration photo, already having a similar wall color and furniture. I just needed to warm it up a bit which I did with the purchase of some frames and a DIY art project. Come see the results. #KeepingCozy
If you want to add a French look to a room, it's amazing how just adding one piece of French furniture can give it that Frenchy feel. I know a lot of people are on a budget, but don't have a consignment store or auction house nearby. I hear you, so I searched the internet to find some inexpensive furniture for you. 7 of these items are under $100. (Not a sponsored post) Click on the link to see my selections. And feel free to share your own. I'll always on the lookout for a good deal.
What I am.....though.....is so much better. I am the person who has painted and repainted and repainted rooms because I couldn't figure out the answer to this simple question, "Why did the paint color in the store not look like the paint color on my wall?"
If you have ever stood in front of a paint chip display and closed your eyes and pointed....this is the post for you. :)
Q: How can I remove a textured ceiling in order to paint it?
A: Boy you have embarked upon one messy job. This is the most difficult of home repair
projects. A textured or "popcorn" ceiling is essentially styrofoam added to the paint. It is blown on to the ceiling with a gun and hose.To remove first move everything out of the room.
You then have to drape out the room with wall to wall plastic in order to catch everything that falls. It is a mess. Wet the surface with a garden sprayer and let the moisture penetrate the popcorn. Then gently run a scraper through the popcorn. Most of it should come off pretty easily. Be very careful not to scrape into the ceiling.
The resulting gouges would then have to be spackled and sanded.Yet again another mess.Popcorn can successfully be removed but to be safe this probably should be left in the hands of a professional painting contractor. You can easily cause more damage and the mess can spread everywhere if you do not properly prepare.
