Did I mention I was able to complete this project for under $50?! Well, I was.
Here’s what I used:
- Particle board trimming: 2.5 inch and 3.5 inches – $42
- Painters Frog tape – $7
- Cream paint (on hand for touching up the trim)
- Nail gun and nails (on hand)
- Saw (on hand)
- Spackle (on hand)
- Painting rollers and brushes (on hand)
Now, if you don’t have these items on hand it would obviously cost more. But for those of you who do or know someone that would let you borrow theirs, it is an easy (yet very time consuming) project. I am lucky enough to have my hunky hunk help out with the cutting and measuring, but I could have done it myself, mostly-ish.
I ended up doing three coats of paint to make sure I was able to get a thick coat over the dark existing wall.
I am loving how it turned out! It adds so much light to the space.
