Basic Painting Strategy
There’s not a whole lot to go over in this post about painting the house, but we’re pretty happy with the strategy we took so far: paint the whole interior white and decide after we’ve settled in what accent walls to paint different colors.
Too often people rush to paint their walls all sorts of crazy colors only to move in and realize the color scheme isn’t going well with their furniture or their lighting. We hired Excel Coatings to paint our exterior soffits grey (to match the metal roof), our interior walls mostly white, and we’ll be calling them back in in a couple of weeks to do a couple of accent walls for us. In the end, we’ve decided to only repaint one wall in the dining room and one wall in the kitchen. It’s really all the house needed and it should hold over us for the next 5-10 years until we paint the whole thing florescent green.
Costs accrued during this stage:
|Interior house painting (Excel Coatings)||$26,100.00|
|Paint supplies (Sherwin Williams)||$161.00|
|Exterior house painting (Excel Coatings)||$2,672.00|
|Post-construction painting and touch-ups (Excel Coatings)||$5,290.00|
