What Houzz contributors are saying:
Paint the walls yourself, but hire out the tricky parts. If you’re not a fan of painting, take a moment to consider which part is your least favorite. Consider hiring a pro to tackle just your least favorite part (ceiling, I’m looking at you) and do the rest yourself. Maybe you don’t mind painting walls but hate fiddling with intricate trim. Do the walls yourself, then have a pro come in and finish the job. You’ll save a little cash and a lot of sanity.
The couple's bedroom was originally very dark. Missy painted the walls a soothing neutral and the ceiling a soft sky blue to create a relaxing retreat.
