The change of wall color in the bedroom is now done. All walls are finally painted and not just three of them. The painting came to a halt just before Xmas because of a flue and a then an irritating cough. But last weekend I did the final wall. I now have dark blue bedroom walls.
The color is the above mix. A dark blue hue that looks different in each angle depending on the light. It replaces the light green melange wall paper which I’ve never liked and planned already before I moved in to change. The green is finally gone.
Painting the fourth wall and corner needed some logistics to move around furniture to get at that last wall and corner. The above “tower” of two Expedit was tricky to move, but I succeeded without anything falling out of it.
Needed to reach that part of the wall behind the sliding doors to the living room for instance. Not that anybody ever sees which color this wall has unless you move the furniture, but I wanted all walls done.
And that corner behind the three wardrobes… Hidden behind the wardrobes are a telephone-connector, a TV-broadband-connection and an electricity output. I use the one for the telephone and the electricity one, but not the one for TV-broadband. I have yet another one like this in the bedroom and another one on the other side of the wall, in the living room.
Fortunately the wardrobes are only 50 cm wide (but 236 cm high) and not attached to each other or the wall (which Ikea thinks they should be). So I only had to push them and they slid nicely over the floor without making any marks on it.
Then it was just regular markup along ceiling and floor etc. and go to work painting. Two layers was enough as the paint is darker than it looks in the pictures. Dries fast. Water-based. Was all finished in the early evening and I could move the furniture back.
I am happy with the result.
Photographed on a sunny day which makes the walls look much lighter than they actually are. I also got light from the big mirror-door reflected on the wall.
One thing that still needs doing here is to exchange the curtain rods. They are presently black, which looks odd toward the dark blue wall. They need to be white. Made a quick trip to Ikea and bought them, but haven’t put them up yet. Will do tomorrow.
As I was already moving furniture around I also decided to change the carpet in the bedroom and put on the big colorful one I’ve had on and off in the living room. Brings color and looks good there I think.
It is a relief that the green walls are now gone. I am happy with my dark-blue bedroom walls.
