How to Paint a Bedroom in Mountaineers Colors


The West Virginia University Mountaineers wear their colors proudly at every game. To make your bedroom a show of support, you'll need to add a little "old gold and blue" to the walls. If you aren't sure just how to paint a bedroom in Mountaineers colors, you'll want to collect a few ideas. Take your time selecting the paint color to be just right for the Mountaineers, and get your room ready for a day of painting.

Things You'll Need

  • Mild soap
  • Bucket
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Level
  • Painters tape
  • Paint brushes and rollers
  • "Old gold" paint
  • Navy blue paint
  • Wash the walls to remove any dirt or dust and allow the new paint to more easily adhere. Measure and mark a level line approximately 3 feet up from your floor and going all the way around the room. Measure and mark a second line 6 inches up from the first line.

  • Run your painters tape around the room, with the edge of the tape running along the line, so you have a 6-inch-wide stripe going around the entire room. Paint the stripe with your gold paint and allow to dry. Apply a second coat if necessary and let dry.

  • Remove the old tape and put new strips of tape on the wall, along each edge of the gold paint, leaving the unpainted wall uncovered.

  • Paint the wall space both above and below the gold stripe with your blue paint. Be sure to cover the area entirely, and apply a second coat if needed. Allow the paint to dry before removing the tape.

  • Paint the baseboards and door jambs with the gold paint, for a more complete look to the room.

Tips & Warnings

  • To add a little more flare to your Mountaineers room, consider putting stencils on the walls in "old gold" or adding gold pillows and curtain fabrics.
  • If you are working on a newly constructed wall, use primer before applying your first coat of paint.
