For whatever reason, I decided to tackle several DIY projects while organizing the master bedroom closet. We decided no to paint the shelving or walls, in the closet, because it would be too time-consuming. So, I was looking for a way to add some extra drama to the room. It was no surprise to myself or my husband that I decided to paint the ceiling a non-traditional color. It’s expected that the ceiling be white, so I thought it would be interesting for it to be just the opposite. Since I didn’t need much paint, I searched the house for leftover paint. I found the upstairs bathroom nook color. It’s a dark, smoky, gray – Sherwin Williams Iron Ore. But it’s not black. Perfect!
I used painters tape for the molding and then painted the entire ceiling in 2 coats of SW Iron Ore. It took about an hour to complete the project. The corners were a little cramped so it wasn’t the funnest project. But I’m so glad I did it! Here is what the ceiling looked like before we painted it. It was pretty boring but most ceilings are.
Here is the ceiling after it was painted. This project was worth the time. It adds interest to the closet and would be easy to re-paint. I must say though, that now, I’m a fan of non-white ceilings. Paint the ceiling ANY COLOR other than white!
Bring on the dark painted ceilings! I’m in love. It pairs well with the entire look of the master bedroom closet makeover. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the new light fixture in the space.
