Pale, Pale Pink

Back here I painted our smallest bedroom Benjamin Moore Head Over Heels pink.

I had about a third of a can remaining and decided to use it on the master bedroom ceiling. The ceiling was part dirty and part raw drywall mud from repairs after removing the closets.

The master bedroom has not been painted for over 15 years.

I bought a gallon of  flat Clark and Kensington White Mosaic and mixed it with the leftover pink paint. (We’re using White Mosaic in semi-gloss as our interior trim color.)

The palest pink you can imagine is on the master bedroom ceiling.

The ceiling is just the palest whisper of pink.

I’m still planning to use a light but intense periwinkle on the walls. But plans are known to change.

Are you painting something that really needs a lift? How many years (decades) do you wait between paint jobs?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. The only reason pink is even in our palette is due to our pink tile (but thankfully white fixtures) bathroom. I agree that it creates a lovely softness. Jo
