On the striped wall, after the primer, white stripes and backfilling the tape, we then had to do 2 or 3 coats of color, with a heat lamp on them to dry between coats, removed the tape carefully, and there is always touch up. I've learned that. If I expect it, I'm not so frustrated.
|The other walls look very blue in the evening, and quite green during the day. |
I love how lighting changes things!
In choosing so much color, I also didn't want to simply go with a "rainbow" color scheme. If you notice, there is no green in the stripes. Turquoise, yes, but not simply primary/secondary true-hues. I used red and tinted red (red+white=pink) and the charcoal grey has a blue hue to it, which allowed me to not use violet in the stripes. The pale green on the other two walls isn't really pastel, or maybe an updated pastel, but that's how I got away with not using green either.
I can't wait until the whole room is put together! This is turning out so nicely... a good pay-off for all that work. Phew!
