HOW TO PAINT A ROOM

How to Paint a Room // 7thhhouseontheleft.com

We’ve had a few emails and Facebook comments asking us to do a post about how we paint/prep a room, and with the completion ofΒ the guest bedroom painting processΒ last week, we figured now was as good a time as any. There are certainly any number of ways you can go about painting a room, but we thought it would be fun to put all of our painting tips/methods/suggestions into one post. On top of that, this will be a good…

SCRATCH THAT & LET’S PAINT

Anonymous by Behr // 7thhouseontheleft.com

We spent a good portion of this last weekend re-painting the guest room. Before we get to what it’s looking like now, we need to back up a bit and explain a few things.

This past weekend, we took the next step in our big carport renovation: painting the carport floor. For us, getting the floor “done” was second on the list of carport/patio priorities, right after the ceiling. We couldn’t very well have this nice, planked ceiling with an oil- and who-knows-what-else-stained floor below it. So, we decided that paint was the best, most cost-effective way to go. I guess I’m getting a little ahead of myself, though, because it took a lot…

PAINTING THE TOWN RED

Red Front Door / 7th House on the Left

Okay, so we didn’t necessarily paint the town red. Just the front door. Our current mission is to spruce up the foyer and turn it into a real, bonifide, cozy, inviting entry. As we mentioned on Monday (in this post), we were given the chance to pick the brain of one of our favorite designers, Sabrina Soto (Ashley is still having random fangirl fits). During our Q+A session, she mentioned that painting the front door would add some needed visual…
