Painting the bedroom + adding character to brick walls

Yesterday's post was about how to texture ceilings on your own. Once the ceiling was dry in the basement bedroom, we moved onto painting. I forgot to get before pictures. Fail.

Here are the pics after one coat of Glidden primer:

I'm standing in the living room looking into the bedroom.

This is what it looks like after two coats of Perfect Greige from Sherwin-Williams:

**Remember that we are putting up crown molding so I didn't cut in. Why waste time, right?

My mom had a fun idea to roll a lighter color of paint (Popular Gray) on top of the darker color (Perfect Greige) on the brick wall in the closet.

Take your paint roller and very lightly roll it horizontally.

Halfway done...

This only took me a couple of minutes. Even though this is in the closet and may get covered up, I love it! I'm going to apply it in the office as well (but reverse the colors) since there are two brick walls in there.

For those of you who are new to this blog, we are finishing our basement on our own. Here are some other basement related posts:
