Well, we did it, we finished painting the master bedroom. We put up a chair rail to seperate the two colors and make it look more finished. It was fairly simple, except for the two longest walls that were not flat. In some places we had almost a quarter of an inch gap and no amount of caulk will fill that in. So we decided to add quarter round to the top of the chair rail to disguise our amateur attempts at caulking and it worked pretty well.
Without further ado here are the before and after pictures.
PS I think HGTV should have a warning like Mythbusters- you know one that says "we are trained professionals, don't try this at home unless you have an interior design degree or are a master carpenter."
After- soothing blue and brown.
Before- Primer over the orange- you can still see it
After-no more orange!
After- close up of the fine detail work. :)
