Guess what's sitting in the dining room floor as we speak?

paint 002

Looking at that big old pile makes me realize just what a big job this is going to be!

That's 7 gallons of paint for the walls (4 are in the box). I chose Duration Home in Matte. It's low VOC and super cleanable, which is a must for the staircase and hallway.

We got three gallons of ceiling paint, in the cheapie Design Basics. We decided on Repose Gray for the ceiling, to add some depth. We think our nine foot ceilings can handle it.

And I also picked up a quart of Black of Night and some tinted primer for the fireplace! I can't wait to try it out and see how it looks.
