Birch Lodge Dining Room Update
The solution is to scrape off the paint, wash off the chalk based calcimine paint, and seal it all with an oil base primer, and apply a new top coat of paint.
Time consuming and messy. Especially washing the ceiling..
I also wanted to change the 50's blue. Although a pretty color, we were hoping to use something more appropriate for the period of the building.
I chose a celery green from an online article on arts and crafts color schemes.
The ceiling still needs to have a finish coat of a more creamy white, but I think the change is for the better.
I think the green really provides a nice background for the antiques too. Now to find just the right creamy white.....
