Of course, there's things to be done to make it our own. We still need furniture is certain rooms, there are DIY / crafting projects I'd like to tackle, and perhaps most pressingly, the nursery.
But before I can fully give my attention to any of those projects, there is one HUGE eyesore that needs to be remedied stat. Remember the Master bedroom and bathroom?
If you don't immediately see what I'm talking about here, you need to adjust the color settings on your computer. And if you think there's something wrong with the color settings on your computer, no worries friend, this paint color really is that offensive.
I'm wise enough to know that if this doesn't get painted soon, before we get too comfortable and the baby arrives, it'll be years before it gets done. And because this color is so electric it actually is hard to fall asleep in this room at night. Ladies, can you even imagine putting your MAKEUP on in this bathroom? No wonder I always look like a hot mess. I can't bear the prospects of dealing with this stress for any longer than is physically necessary.
I've had painters in for quotes - I'm also giving the kitchen a new paint color (more on that this week) - and we're scheduled to paint on August 1st. That's just around the corner. Because some things never change, we're back to picking paint colors.
I've always been an advocate of painting your samples on white poster board rather than directly on the wall you'll be painting for this exact reason. There's no way anyone could make an sound choice when you're working with that orange/pink/red as a backdrop.
So here's where I need your help. I know it's difficult to pick paint colors from this photo, but would you mind please leaving your vote in the comments? Mr. B and I have it narrowed down, but it'll be interesting to see if your comments serve as a much needed tie-breaker.
Here's the list of colors:
On the left:
1. Benjamin Moore Light Pewter
2. Benjamin Moore Abalone
3. Sherwin Williams Ancient Marble
4. Olympic Georgian Silver
On the right:
1. Benjamin Moore Silver Fox at 50%
2. Valspar Smoked Oyster at 75% (remember this color from the kitchen & dining room???)
3. Benjamin Moore Hampshire Taupe
4. Valspar Frappe
Thanks in advance friends - your help is much appreciated!
