The HC - insert wall, part 4

by brae  

I've decided to go ahead and scare myself into motivation mode by adding a countdown in the sidebar.  :O  My mantra: "Everything I do is one less thing to be done."

Here is how the insert wall looked when I left it last with wallpaper and paints added.  The Ceramcoat Waterfall paint was nice, but it was darker than I wanted once in place.  I was trying to make the door blend more with the wall as if to say, nothing to see here.

I mixed the Ceramcoat Waterfall with Ceramcoat Blissful Blue to get a lighter color.  I painted over the base coat of Ceramcoat Waterfall, and the result was much closer to my original idea.  For the trims, I started with a base coat of plain Ceramcoat Waterfall since I needed it all to match the door.

The baseboards around the room are Minwax Jacobean, so to disguise the mitres I used a dark brown Sharpie on the cut edges before gluing the boards in place.

I thought it might end up looking weird to have dark baseboards on the removable wall.  Typically, when you're painting a door the same color as the walls, the trims are also the same color.  I didn't want blue trims throughout, so I mixed the styles.  Somehow, it works and looks relatively seamless.  :]

It will also fade more into the background once furnishings and the dark gable trims are added.  It might not be the cleanest solution, but I just didn't want dark trim to interfere with the line of sight when the structure is filled and I needed that large of an opening.

The wall is a tight fit, which is just fine.  This won't need to be removed often.

And, the back....

It looks wonderful! I wouldn't have thought the combination of dark and light trim would work but it really looks beautiful. I think the repaint of the door was definitely the way to go, everything blends in just a bit more.

You did a great job mixing the colors. I was thinking of doing my 1:1 bathroom a similar color scheme. Thanks for letting me know how it would look!
