Hey! So excited to finally share what I have been up to the past few weeks. Today it’s all about the niches and nooks and color block! What a huge difference paint makes when I added it to the niches in our house.
And until this project I never realized how many niches and nooks we had in our house. They must have been a cheap way to finish an odd shaped space.
This particular niche below is right off the garage door entry into our house. I have an identical niche off the main level. This space is my husband’s “remote office.”
The process to color block niches is a bit of a pain (p.i.t.a) in the #arse because I applied Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy adjacent to the existing Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. A friend taught me a technique I will share later. And, it’s not one you have probably used, but it works almost every time!
Guess in the comments!
I am so excited with the results of my color block. I have additional niches and bookshelves to paint, but these are the ones I did over a long weekend. I was ready to take a break after the 2 story mantel below.
This is the identical design as the one above, but this niche is just off the main hallway outside the guest bath. I did this one first and loved it because all I needed was a step ladder to paint it. Oh.. are you seeing a theme with my decor?
This last one (for now) was the hardest one to paint. It required me standing on the mantel to paint the arch. As long as I didn’t look up to the ceiling I was “okay.” And, of course, I had the hardest time with the color block edges on this one. I think it’s because I had about four inches of clearance from my face to the back wall of the niche.
But I love this one! It’s my favorite! I hope to get some mileage out of this photo on future posts (blog humor, right).
