Last night around 9:00 pm I was painting a test swatch of paint on our master bedroom wall. This makes perfect sense to everyone else too, correct? As part of our master bedroom makeover, I was planning to paint the walls. The paint project timeline has been moved forward several months because we are replacing the flooring now instead of in the summer.
A few months ago I bought two gallons of Behr paint at Home Depot because it was $7 a gallon. Someone either changed their mind or didn't like the color. It looked like a beautiful bluish grayish color. I figured for a savings of about $75 I could make it work somewhere in the house. The color is called Prelude.
Since, our daughter wanted something different for her room, I decided to try it on our bedroom. So last night, I'm painting away when you know who walks into our room. I know he thinks I'm crazy, but he knows me very well after 33 years, so nothing much should surprise him anymore in regard to me and decorating our home.
I was planning to ask his opinion of the color after it was dry and we had viewed it at all times of the day in all light etc, etc, but then he said, " it matches your pajamas!" Yes, I was painting in my pjs, nothing strange there, it was just a couple square feet of wall space. BUT, my pajamas were sort of aqua, or a pale turquoise nowhere near the wall color.
My SuperDave had another question, "What are you doing?"
Me: "Going to bed"
SD: "Why are you walking all around the room?"
Me: "I'm thinking about what color to paint to the lingerie chest. I'm thinking maybe red, it would be gorgeous in red."
Me: "Or black, I love the solid black on your bedside table. Maybe red on the detail of the drawer fronts, then black over it and sand off the black so the red shows through."
SD: "Well do whatever you want."
Me: "You know I will." smile
So here's how the sample spot is looking....maybe too blue? Not enough gray?
Oh my, these walls are ELEVEN FEET tall. sigh
Don't 'cha love paint? It totally transforms.
