At this point Hubby chose to open up the ceiling to check for moisture. Years ago we had a water pipe leak and he just wanted to make sure all was dry. This was relatively easy for him as originally he had covered the pipes etc with white metal. A few screws and it was off. All seemed to be fine in there, so it was covered back up again.
Then came the cutting in of the paint. We chose a pale beige or tan. Small room calls for lighter colours.
The room was painted with two coats to cover the original green walls. The floor was washed and baseboards put in. So love-i-lee.
