It will look a little weird…so just paint one room at a time.  Then the different paints won’t be RIGHT next to each other.

Just start doing one room at a time until you get everything done. While it looks odd, if you are going to paint a different color (instead of builder white), it will look like it is just being worked on.

I did our entire house over the course of about a year. I just took it one room at a time. The largest room took about 2-3 weeks to finish (as it is a huge L shaped room). We left the ceilings are flat, looks fine though.

@Winter11:  You just have to start somewhere and keep painting, especially if your not happy with how it is.

Just do one wall at a time, over the course of a few weekends. If you can do more than one, then great. Heck, when we did our upstairs hallway, it was probably 2 weeks before we got the actual 2 story step area done since we ended up having someone come in to just do that. We had a wall half painted and the other half undone.

Our master bedroom was basically a 2 weekend project as it’s huge. The main wall runs the entire length, it was basically an entire day just doing that one wall. All bedrooms upstairs are valted ceilings as well, so I feel your pain with them – these have the shelves on the one side too.

Take your time and you will get done. The only flat paint left in our house is on ceilings and in closets, that’s it. We painted the hallways and main areas a neutral tan color, so much better than white.
