  1. The fact that you like the color means a lot to me Julie since your so good at decorating.

  2. Whose idea were popcorn ceilings, anyway? Haha. Love your choice of paint color!

  3. Hi Annie, I am always excited to hear from others who used Palladian Blue. We did use it in the Dining Room and up the hallway that I blogged about and it turned out great. It no doubt looks heavenly in your bathroom.

    Love Palladian Blue. It’s in our bathroom downstairs and it’s definitely a pretty beachy blue in there. Can’t go wrong with it!

  5. Oh great! You will love that board. I use it a lot to get inspired to paint and choose colors. One of my favs!

  6. I have you on my list to explore more on Pinterest. Paint Profiles board..I want to see and pin!

  7. Oh I know and agree! This why I love having Pinterest! I have a board called Paint Profiles that I house all various paint colors and wow does that make life easier!

  8. Thanks for the encouragement Carolann! Picking out paint colors is the one of the hardest things to do for me.

  9. Oh I love that color you chose! I can’t wait to see the final pictures! It looks like you have some great ideas brewing too. Looking forward to see it’s completion!

  10. Great to hear from you and thank you Doreen. We hope to get some painting done this weekend. Hubby said he has more sanding to do, so that may put us back on progress yet again.

  11. I don’t know who came up with the idea of popcorn ceilings either. Me thinketh they’re keeping themselves on the down low ;).

    That is a LOT of work and I bow down to your patience and enthusiasm Sue! The blue is lovely, and it’s all going to be so worth it when it’s finished.

  12. Thank you Jenny Lynn, that made my day today. We bought the ceiling and wall paint yesterday and hopefully will be painting this weekend. Exciting!

  13. It maybe a mess now, but it is going to be so worth it once it is done and you are hosting that first dinner party. Think of all the stories you will be able to tell. I really like the color that you have picked out. Looking forward to seeing the final project.

  14. Thanks for the giggle, I do feel good about the project now. I need to learn to be more patient and am anxious to see how the color will look in the room.

  15. Whoa, you are doing a lot of projects too. We have more to do too and may be moving in around a year, so I know how it is. I have to admire that you are doing these projects on your own.

  16. You have my full sympathy dear lady. I have never tried to remove a popcorn ceiling but if it is anything like getting textured paint off of walls (except that the ceiling stuff would be falling on your head instead of your feet) I truly feel your pain. But I do really love the Palladian Blue paint if that makes you feel a little better.

    My house has been “under construction” for well over a year now. I still have to finish the flooring (new carpet in bedrooms, new Pergo in kitchen), paint, and put up trim. I’m on a time crunch though as I’m moving in a year and need to get it on the market before that. Ugh. Then there’s all the outside stuff that has to be done – new porch, try to get grass growing (and I have 3,500 sq ft of yard). Feels pretty overwhelming when you’re a single mom trying to do it all.

    I love that paint color you picked out. I have a similar color in my bedroom and I love it. I love Benjamin Moore paint – it’s such a good quality and their colors are great.

  18. Thanks for the wonderful encouragement today Dana. It always makes my day when you stop by to comment.

    Oh, Sue, what a project!! I’ve seen my share of HGTV shows discussing the removal of popcorn ceilings and although I haven’t had to deal with it, I’d probably do the same, and with the same level of enthusiasm!! Just think how beautiful your dining room will be. I love the color you selected, too. Can’t wait to see more photos. But, you may need a glass of wine or two to get you through this project. It seems that one project always leads to another, right?
    Love ya!

  20. I don’t know who came up with the idea of popcorn ceilings. They can cover a multitude of problem areas so there is that thought. It is good to remove a popcorn ceiling if you can for selling your home as a lot of people don’t like them.

  21. I love the color you chose and I love all the idea rooms you featured.

    Good luck!

    BTW – I have never lived in a house with a popcorn ceiling – who came up with the idea of a popcorn ceiling?
