The Painting is Done!

Finally! The color we picked for the kitchen was a bit light, it would have looked great in a baby boy's room, but not in my kitchen! So we chose a little bit darker blue. It looks great! The bedroom was such a pain in the rear! I think at the end we had about three different colors on the wall. I wanted a nice relaxing green, probably because I am starved for green right now. When will spring be here? But the first color I chose looked seafoam green when on the walls, so I went for a light blue/gray. I swear the temperature of the room went down 10 degrees just from the color on the walls. I felt like I was in an ice cube! I was so frustrated and was a little gun shy about picking another color. It is just so hard to imagine what a color is going to look like on the wall from those little paint swatches. My husband suggested looking at books and magazines to get ideas. To make a long story shorter, I found the perfect color of green! I'll have to take pictures once we get moved in. Overall I think we wasted about $100 in paint looking for the perfect colors! The skinflint in me is cringing right now!

There has been zero running and zero knitting in the past week. I have been scrambling to get things done so we can move in this weekend. Hopefully then things will slow down a little so I don't feel as rushed all the time. But the painting is done, the house is clean and all I need to do is pack whatever is left to pack, which is actually about 3/4 of the townhome! I think I am going to go crazy!!!!

    It sounds like you are making progress. Picking paint is the hardest. It took years for me to agree to paint our bedrooms anything other than china white. H picked her own shocking pink. We painted N's a blue similiar to your blog. Our bedroom is a blue gray that I find very relaxing.
    Once you are settled you'll be so glad and everything else will fall into place.

  2. Good luck with the move. We moved on the only day in January 2000 that decided to have snow and wet! Oh well, nothing got too wet.
