Reworking the Office

I started on the office this weekend.

One of the things I had to do before painting was adding another 1×6 header to the sliding rail for the door. When I installed it earlier this year, I didn’t take into consideration that the door would hang at an angle and hit the trim every time I slid the door. Needless to say, I had the door opened most of the time.

I also painted the trim from Super White to Chantilly Lace since that color will go throughout the house.

So after adding the new wood piece, I thought I’d keep some of the turquoise. You might be able to see the pencil line I drew out. IMG_1478

 

It didn’t work so I quickly decided to use Lemon Ice through the entire office, leaving just the stenciled wall in turquoise.

What a difference.

It’s not all done. I’ll finish it out next weekend but I did get the door back up and it works! It hangs straight and doesn’t hit the trim now!

See, not done yet but getting there. The room is definitely brighter. You can also tell that it isn’t bright white. 🙂
