Painting Project

Jump to recipe!

Before moving into our new home last Fall, my middle and youngest son and I stripped the wallpaper in their room. And, here we are 7 months later, and are just getting to the painting. This project will probably take awhile, so I plan on doing a weekly update for you.

This is where we started



Our plan is to paint the walls white and trim in black. The boys that share this room, both enjoy sports of all kinds. Originally, we were going to make it an orange and black Slicer (High School colors) bedroom. But, my middle son came up with the idea of using the College Teams as decorating. Stay tuned for the outcome of that, it’s gonna be cool!

I bought 1 gallon Flat White Paint for the ceiling, 2 gallons Satin White Paint for the walls and 1 gallon of black Semi-Gloss Paint for the trim. I spent a total of $54 for the paint. I’m hoping we will have some leftover for my oldest son’s room, which we will tackle next.


As you can see, by his arm, Nick’s girlfriend is helping with the painting, and they had a little fun painting each other.




Nick spray painted all of the hardware silver.

  1. Great job! It’s always better late than never. I love the idea of spray painting the hardware instead of buying new. His smiley face is too cute. =)

  2. WOW, this looks great. I’m not brave enough to tackle painting an entire room but I don’t mind painting furniture! Maybe once the littlest one gets older I’ll feel more confident about taking on a bigger project like painting or wallpapering a room but for now I’ll stick to the furniture! lol

  3. looks like a lovely large room with wonderful windows

  4. New paint always makes me SO excited : ). How nice is that his girlfriend helped? The painted smile is the cutest!

  5. Great tackle! Love the smiley face on the arm…that’s something my boys would do to me. lol
