We (my dh) painted the two upstairs bathrooms over the weekend. One was a shade different shade because I picked the wrong one the first time (too powdery blue instead of watery). So I'm pretty happy with that one.
I cleaned out the room so he could do our bathroom and then I went shopping. WELL....I picked the paint out about 3 or so months ago. It's HORRIBLE!! My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw it. It's a bright sunflowerish yellow. I was looking for a muted gold color. NOT. I have no idea what we're going to do but it has to be changed. First I thought of some sort of faux finish over it to tone it down. Then I thought it would probably be more work and what if it's still horrible?! So I guess I'll be looking at paint chips again and I'm letting my hubby pick it this time! I guess I'm just not good with color. Somehow I think I'm ok with color in my scrapbooks but on walls, I suck. Mind you, we had to do our porch over during the summer too. And I take so much care in getting a gazillion chips and take my time deciding....I need a color class!!!
I'm very excited that our new appliances will be coming on Friday! Yippeee!! We got all Whirlpool - dishwasher, fridge, stove and microwave. I'm curious to see how stainless will look in my kitchen!
