Dos Orchards Color Match Paint
We are alive on a DIY with Help advance in our active allowance and I'm disturbing over my ceiling. Its a 10' to 15' basement with abominable 1980's "stomp" texture. Previously, all of the walls and the beam were corrective the aforementioned blush and I actually abominable the beam (and aggregate else). Now that I've corrective the walls, I don't abhorrence the beam -as- much. Originally my plan was to awning it with crisp, white beadboard to bout the acme abstraction we're putting up, but I'm not abiding that I abhorrence the beam abundant to absolve spending $500 on beadboard and trim (it's a BIG ceiling). I'm because readjusting my priorities and instead spending that money on adorning items and new appliance to absolutely accomplish the allowance feel accomplished and beautiful. But, if we don't beadboard the beam again that agency that I charge to acrylic it... so, should I acrylic it white and it be a abrupt adverse to the aphotic taupe and greige colors on the walls (which I LOOOOOOVE), or should I acrylic it the aforementioned aphotic taupe colors as are on the advanced and aback wall? I'm aptitude against the dark, but I'm abashed that I won't like it. Would painting it aphotic abbreviate or accent the barge texture? I'm ok with bringing the beam bottomward visually, as it is -very- aerial and lofty. I'd like for the allowance to feel cozier and added intimate. Please agenda that the unpainted areas on the walls are places area we are activity to adjustment cracks in the drywall. And we're putting acme abstraction up so I didn't go all the way to the beam with the paint.
