paint job

How many of you have painted the walls inside your Airstream?..just wondering, if we can redo the furniture, the appliances, the floor, why not the walls?

You can.

I painted the general walls and ceiling, two coats, in a Benjamin Moore OIL based matte-finish paint and the bath walls and ceiling with POR-15 WhiteCoat.

The Whitecoat is brilliant white and feels like porcelain.

We used a small foam roller to apply both paints over two coats of KILZ primer.

It looks very nice.

The bathroom walls in Chummy, including the shower top are painted with Tru-Valu acrylic (latex) enamel over a coat of KilzII. I love those water based products.

codybear, Maybe if you could get it to Northern CA we could help you do a Zolotone job.

Kent,

I think definitely we'd start out w/the primer like that kilzn!

Claudia and Don,

So you're back from BB!..ready for the 29 Palms one?

Hey, maybe we might just have to go up No. and check out that zolotone!..Steve says he remembered your paint job!..I was too distracted w/all the other cool trappings of your interior!

The walls in our FC are done in a soft white and it is not distracting but compliments the wood nicely. It was done over one coat of primer and there has been no problems. If I were to do it over I would probably shade it just a tad darker but it's okay the way it is. We looked at one a couple of years back that was done in a very bright blue to match the upholstery and carpet and I did not like it at all. We also looked at one that had been painted a light grey and it made the trailer feel very cold (my impression anyways).

Thnx for all of your feedback!..The first part of my interior decorating project is just about completed: I've decided on taupe/beige and cobalt blue colors for my comforter. The curtain/divider for the bath/galley is neutral beige/brown tones..see pix..so now all I have to do is decide on the walls!..maybe a soft white, or beige???

Either sounds good to a partly color blind guy like me. The soft white leaves a bit more room for color changes down the road as well.

Of course I'm the guy who's wife has to dig out matching clothes for me if it's dark as I struggle to tell the difference between subtle shades if it's not under bright light.

Hi Barry,

That's ok..color is all subjective anyways

After the paint colors decided, I'll move on to the dinette area. I am going to start shoppng for the twin dinette sofa/beds cushion upholstery..not sure what colors to go for there..maybe deep green and crimson/cranberry colored pattern???
