We've been very brave this year! After much thoughts....we've finally went ahead, and my husband painted all our ceilings and wooden floors in the house - creamy off white! It's one of those things we weren't sure of but we just had to do it to find out..and there's no going back afterwards!!
Since our house on the ground floor level got a very low ceiling, ...we felt the need of expanding the space even if we have to do it through illusion, yet still maintain the character of those exposed wood beams in the house.
We left the wood beams in it's natural wood colour...and we thought it came out good that way. The best thing was all the painting jobs were done in the summer, where we can get the paint fumes out by leaving windows wide open for the duration of time.
If you have any garden, home, cooking, craft, or any good projects in mind...go ahead, just do it....it's fun to work. In the end, you could say: I did that, I've done it:)
