how to choose a paint color for a bedroom

in painting my walls, i’ve come across anissue that i need to deal with, and that is this 220 volt outlet. we used to have thewashing machine and the dryer upstairs and we’ve moved it to the basement. this can’tcome out, and we probably wouldn’t want it to because if we ever resold the housesomeone might want to move the washer and dryer back upstairs. on the suggestion ofmy interior designer craig, he said just paint it out; just go over it. this is not a hightraffic area, so it should not scrape; the paint shouldn’t scrape off. i’m goingto give it a couple of coats, and that way instead of having this khaki camel color withthe white outlet, that’s very blatantly obvious. it’ll just be the same color, andpeople won’t even notice it. there’s a


couple of other things i’m going to do likethat as well, which i’ll show you. now, i’m also going to cut in with paint on mytrim. i have a kind of a weird trimmed out window here, where with my handy dandy tapemeasure; i figure out that i have 11 1/16 of space here. yet on this side, i only have2 1/16. so i’m going to mark this out this direction. 2 1/16. i’m going to come uphere though, and then also mark it at the bottom. then i’m going to take my painttape. i’m going to take my 2 markings, go on the inside of them, press my tape down,go a little bit in here so i want to be absolutely concise there. then i’m going to take…we’repainting this wall red…i’m going to take my red paint and go over the whole entiretrim, so that when it dries and i pull off


this tape, this distance will match the samedistances as this here and here, and that way it will look more concise and perfectlike it should.
