My office is painted! blog post + video

My office is finally painted. Painting wall after wall in my house is really not fun at all, but making a time lapse of it all is fun! So lucky you, here’s another time lapse video for your entertainment. I’ve also encluded a regular ol’ blog post with photos below. Have fun watching and reading!

The previous owners painted the room green. Honestly, it wasn’t a terrible green. I just didn’t like it very much.

Like how messy my office is? Yes, it’s terrible. The office is right off the family room on the main floor so it tends to become the dumping grounds for any and all crap. It’s a work in progress!

Here’s one more ‘before’ shot.

And just like that, with the magic of the internet, the room is painted! And clean!!

The color is Sherwin Williams Stucco in a satin finish (paint and primer in one).

The space is much brighter now and I feel like I can focus a lot more on my blogging and crafting now.

Before and after:




See all my blog posts that also contain a youtube video here.

Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I’ve always been told you’re not supposed to do edging without painting immediately otherwise they’ll dry different and you’ll get different colors. I’ve only painted, oh, once, so I have no idea if this is really true… In your video, you did all your cutting in and letting it dry (or so it seemed to me) and then went back and painted your walls complete. Did you have any issues with it drying differently, have you ever, or is my information incorrect? Because your way seems MUCH easier! 😀

    • I have never heard that! Interesting. Sometimes I will take DAYS to paint a room. I’ve never had a drying issue with sheen or color. Mix your paint really well each time you paint because the sheen can separate and one will look more shiny or flat than the other.

  2. Looks great! You’re making headway! Love the new color!

    • Thanks! Trying to make some headway on this house! I was so close on the last one and then had to move for husband’s work, so I dreaded having to start over! It is what it is though and I’m happy to be in a nice house even though I have to start all over again. 🙂

  3. I liked the green color but it does look brighter now. Heck, just removing the clutter was probably more work than the painting (because you have to find a place to put it all–super challenging at my housel). Looks great!
