I was feeling inspired after Friday’s post so I roped Hubs into painting our living room on Saturday. This project was a massive undertaking, especially considering we have to plan everything around nap time.
Worse yet, my “perfect” light gray (Nimbus Cloud) turned out to be TOTALLY BLUE. Not gray with a blue undertone. But BLUE. See what I mean?
I’m trying to collect myself but seriously? How could have I messed this up? Why on earth didn’t I paint the whole test swatch on the wall to be sure before taking the plunge? Just like the mistake gray in the nursery, it’s not a bad color. I was actually considering a blue like this in the kitchen. But, not in the living room and the hallways. *sigh*
Not only is our house blue and all of our crap is pushed into the center of the room, but we don’t have a ladder so there are weird patches of the original orangey beige peeking out. Awesome! It was one of those days that we would have made more progress by not doing anything at all, you know?
Where are you, Perfect Light Gray? Only in my dreams?
