Let the painting begin!

This week's house selling prep project is the master bathroom. Of course we painted it a dark color on 3 walls and it needs to be a light neutral color!

My husband put up painter's tape on every edge, took down fixtures and outlet/switch covers, etc. Now to prime and paint 2 coats of the new color. Wish me luck.

  2. Good luck! Better you than me, haha! :) I do like your old colour but I know that agents and buyers will want neutrals.

  3. I also like the old color, but it's true a lighter shade will make the room look bigger.

    1. You are right Tom - and we have been told that neutral wall colors help potential buyers imagine their own stuff in the house. Plus they aren't adding painting to how much it will cost to make the house the way they like it. Hope it helps get a higher price!
