Cottage Paint Color: American Cheese (Yellow)

Painting the bedroom turned out to be more complicated than painting the bathroom!

The bead board in this room is the original tongue and groove type boards as opposed to bead board panels. Not only was it not pre-primered, it was original knotty pine. So, before we could even begin to paint, each of those knots had to be treated with Zinsser Bin and allowed to dry. If you don't do this, the oil from the pine seeps through the coats of paint and in a few years would start to show up as rust-like spots.

Here's a photo of the walls before.

Now that the hard work is done, it was definitely worth the sweat. And I am loving the bright yellow in this cheery little sunlit room. The paint color is Benjamin Moore American Cheese.
