I am not the most patient person. I am not alone in this, I know you are too even if you don't want to admit it. Ok, actually maybe you are incredibly patient but I for one like things done well but I also when them finished so I can move on!
It seems I always have a long list of to do's that as much as I tick things off are filled with new jobs.
Where am I going with this? Yes, let's get to that. I have painted parts of the house several times and while I enjoy the end result I always dread the process because I know I'll have to prep and paint in layers, waiting in between for each coat to dry.
This is why when BEHR asked me to test their MARQUEE Interior Paint & Primer, the one-coat coverage guarantee made this was one painting project I actually looked forward to.


Elin shares a room with us but I've still tried to make her side looks like hers and differentiate her space from mine. I decided to paint half, well more like 1/3, of the wall in Translucent Silk. I wanted a color similar to her bedding which is like a soft taupe/pink for a subtle pattern against the existing white wall.
The entire project took about an hour from masking off the area to painting around the trim and rolling!

/A quick tip for this sort of paint project when you want a crisp line and you have textured walls like I do, first paint along the taped area with the color of the base, in my case white, and let it dry. Then go over with your new color as usual. The first coat color will be pushed between the textures and the second will be a much cleaner line of color across.


  1. This is lovely! Is that the GULLIVER cot from IKEA? If so, are you happy with it? I'm debating whether to buy it as a simple and inexpensive option or splurge on the new Stokke Home cot that's shaped like a little house.
