    18:09 why are you painting over wall paper? UUUGh if you are going to do something do it right. 19:40 there you go use the light to off set the deep dark hue of the wall

    6:28 that's the one! it harmonises with all your sample colors! …..meanwhile everything is in the grey or muted brown family and the paint chip is like a peachy muted orange but i guess that was the style back then 😛

    18:07. Painting on the wallpaper??? AW, PLEEEEASSE! The seams would be visible no matter what. Our 1953 home that we bought in 1990 had a couple of rooms painted that way. We had to get rid of the walls and install new sheetrock to get rid of the mess, No way we would paint them over again.
    LOL!
