I am trying to change my approach as I mentioned in my last post when we chose a gray for the guts of our house. I am trying to be more thoughtful and patient and deliberate about my paint decisions that in the end save us time and moolah.
So here is the latest- our new Oscar playing, television watching, snack eating space needs a coat of paint (among other things!)As a reference, this use to be our dining room, which we never used- except for as a hallway to the kitchen. Got it?
Anyway, in attempt to be more deliberate, I hauled along my inspiration picture to the Sherwin Williams big sale.
Don't you love it? I call it Playfully Vintage!
Here is where things got harry...or messy...or you might call it colorful...
What the h!?
This isn't a circus tent! What was I thinking? Everyone pick your jaws up and let me explain. I looked right through the card to the colorful xylophone and matched the teeny weeny colors to some paint chips, paid 5.00 a sample and headed home to test them out.
Here is the good news- I had a decorating BREAKTHROUGH!!! PAINT THE WALLS THE COLOR OF THE SWEET & SUBTLE BACKGROUND AND GO CRAZY WITH COLORFUL ACCESSORIES.
Oh, how far I've come. There are currently new paint chips taped on the wall- I was too cheap to spring for more 5.00 samples. I feeling pretty satisfied with my new found wisdom and decorating maturity. A student once told me when I paid too much for pleather boots "Live and Learn!"
