ceiling white

Boring but Necessary

When living in an all white house, there is nothing more unsatisfying than painting more white, but that is just what I have been up to.  You see, all of the ceilings are semi-gloss white–the same paint that is also on the walls and trim.  I am a big fan of a super flat finish “Ceiling White,” so away I went with painting white over white.

If you look closely, you can see the old shiny white on the right and the line of flat white on the left.  It took 2 coats to cover the semi-gloss.

I’m always amazed at how white can appear white until it is put next to an even whiter white which then proceeds to make the first white look dirty.  I think I need to go back and edit that last sentence to include about 5 more variations on white!

I painted our recessed “eyeball” lights white too so that they would blend into the ceiling better.

I promise that my next post will a bit more dramatic and a little less…white.
