We’ve already painted it twice and both times the color just didn’t sit right with me. The color is too dark and makes the room seem cave like. I knew I didn’t like the color so I didn’t even bother to do the touch up work on the trim. Needless to say, it’s been on my “to do” list for a while now.
I’m learning that Austin does not get as excited about repainting rooms as I do. He’s probably in the majority on that one. Knowing he would want no part in sprucing up the guest bedroom, I suggested that I take on the project while he is at a conference all weekend in Minnesota. It didn’t take much convincing when he knew he wouldn’t be the one laboring away in a room he doesn’t care about. Having the thumbs up from my hubby, I headed to Lowes to get some paint swatches. As you can see, I grabbed about every color that was even close to what I want.
I’ve learned that paint can look completely different at different times of the day. It can also look different on each wall. So for about 30 minutes, I taped my favorites to each wall, looked at them with lights on-lights off-blinds open-blinds closed-etc. I even waited until it was evening to go back in and check out the colors.
I eventually kept coming back to one called, “Night Frost.” It’s a greyish-blueish-greenish color.
Let the work begin!
