I changed the ceiling color over the weekend from Ceiling White (Benjamin Moore) to a blend of approximately 2 parts of the white to 1 part of Dolphin.
It looked a bit dark when I first started to paint it but once I got the whole ceiling done it was less subtle. It’s now a softer color which works in the dining room.
I decided to repaint my spare bath ceiling from BM’s Ceiling White to a mixture of Dolphin (from my living room ceiling) and leftover Ceiling White.
Ever since I painted my vaulted ceiling an actual color, I wanted to do the same to some rooms. The spare bath was a good place to start because of the size and because it is a work in progress.
This was a pic after I had scraped the popcorn off last year.
Here is the ceiling as I started to practice my paint cutting skills.
About a half hour in:
I still got some paint on the walls but it wasn’t bad. It took an hour and I might need to touch some spots up but it is pretty much done.
Next room to get a new ceiling will be the dining room. It’ll be easier to paint it too since there is ventilation. I don’t mind touching up some spots on the wall but I don’t want to repaint the whole wall :).
