Summer Before Project: Look Up!

So since I like to copy Sam at The Junk House all the time. (hehe Hi friend!) I have decided to join her in the summer link up party action that is going on. What is my project you wonder? Well here's a clue...

You'd think it would be fixing my lights... okay well that's sort of part of it. My big summer project is to paint my jail cell ceilings. The disadvantage to living in a manufactured home is that there are very weird things that the builders did when assembling the home. Such as making the ceilings look all weird. Super weird. Death yellow and beige weird. Obviously not my favorite.

See how uglio that is? I'd prefer to drywall it all and make it pretty but let's face it that's a lot of work and probably wouldn't get much return on it. So to be practical and get what I want I must use the power of white paint!

It's worked wonders on all the other ceilings in the house such as the guest bedrooms...

I also want to paint the big ole beam and the trim that is up around the ceiling to really update the space. You know, de-trailer-ify it. That's always my goal. Good thing I have a couple months to get it done!


  1. Wow - why would they do that? The yellow and white works great as your blogger background, but not so much on the ceiling! However - it looks like an easy enough fix with paint, good luck with that - can't wait to see it finished! :) Here's to motivation {cheers}

  2. Hi friend! Everything is going to look so much better once the ceiling is all white! It'll make the rooms seem lighter and brighter...and less jail cell like. Ah, I can't wait to see it!

  3. Hi Meaghan, so nice to meet you! Thanks for linking this up to my Before & After parties, it's going to look great and I love your goal to de-trailer-ify it!! Too funny. Good luck and hope you have a great summer. Come on back at the end of August to share your after!
