Plus, painting it gave it a fresh, clean look.
What we didn't count on was the paint "changing color" on us. I didn't use the Kilz first in the bedroom. If I had, we'd most likely had the color that it should have been.
We had painted the walls of the living space in our Ohio house Earthy Cane. We had a full can of the color left over, and decided to paint it in the bedroom. Instead of an earth tan-ish color, we ended up with gray walls!
I have to be honest, I think the gray works!! Once we replace the drywall, I may be looking into a nice gray for our bedroom.
