I'm happy to report that I survived Monday and I am not flailing underneath a pile of euroshams somewhere, crying for help. However, I got a little overzealous with the paint samples and, well... my kitchen and living room are a hot mess.
I admit, I was a little heavy handed with the samples. I'm nothing if not thorough, and I like to examine colors in lots of different light.
I'll spare you all the photos; just imagine what it would look like if someone opened up two quarts of paint and flung them around in a fit of change-induced excitement. My poor husband wasn't even surprised, he's so resigned to my decorating and DIY obsession. He glumly accepts zebra striped walls as a fact of life.
I won't even mention how many times I've painted these two rooms in the last 2 1/2 years. The living room's newest color hasn't even been on the wall 12 months. I know that some people (*coughcoughmyfamilycough*) think I have a painting problem, and some may even be taking bets as to how long this newest color will last.
This time y'all, I have a plan. A real one. So there.
Hopefully tomorrow, I will be able to finish a couple of floor plans that I've been fighting with (seriously, is there some magical program out there that I need to use?) to unveil "the plan."
In the meantime though, let's ponder. Edgecomb Gray (lighter) vs. Revere Pewter (darker)?
