Here's the Master Bedroom before:
Step 1: Remove the old dirty curtain hardware left behind by the previous owners.
Step 2: Paint the ceiling Benjamin Moore Decorator's White.
Step 3: Filled all of the existing holes in the walls and sand even once dry. Spot prime any questionable stains and spots.
Step 4: Paint! I chose Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal. (It was meant to be.) It's the paint chip on the bottom right.
Next step: repaint the door and window casings. Someone mixed oil and latex paint the last time around so they currently look like this. But we'll fix it!
