You’ve all been sitting on pins and needles waiting to find out what paint color we settled on in this post, right? Da-da-da-da! Dusky Blue aka the one on the left.
We thought the other color, Heavenly Blue, was too baby-blue-in-your-face. We wanted something toned down, and relaxing. When the paint dried it kind of took us by surprise because it was much brighter than we had anticipated. It makes me feel pretty good about dodging the Heavenly Blue bullet because that would have been offensively bright. The cool part of it is that the nice blue makes the white trim and the dark wood doors POP.
We bought the big 5 gallon bucket because we are painting the biggest areas of our house. I did not anticipate it being such a mess. Obviously we missed something.
We still need to paint the stairwell and the upstairs hallway (scary tall ladders, ahoy!), but after that the next step is to organize and hang all of our pictures and art to make it feel like a homey home. I simply can’t wait. Maybe if I’m really lucky, I’ll have new floors by the summer. Oh, and about the title. If you are ever painting and need to use a stool or chair, alternate which leg you use to stand up on it. It’s a great gluteal workout, but I accidently only used the same leg again and again. Obviously I didn’t notice until the next day. No pain, no gain.
Are you working on any major changes in your home?
