you are here and half-way over already
today was a Granny/Gramps day
so J-man was here to play...that is always a fun day
when one of the boys comes to play! :)
I took advantage of some 'me' time
while Mark was playing with 'the boy'
and painted some poster board
you see yesterday I was at Lowes
dreaming of paint colors
I bought three samples of varying whites...
Valspar: Soft Silk, Sugarcane Pink & Fragile Blue
Suzanne from Privet and Holly said she was going to paint some
foam poster board and I was too cheap and bought just regular poster board
which was not that great, it curled as it dried...but still I was able to get
an idea of how the light will hit these paint samples in the two rooms I am
thinking of painting...great idea, so thanks to Suzanne!
So I painted it and I am pretty sure I already know
which one I like the best, the pictures I took do not show it as well as in person...
but, I really like the 'fragile blue' it is a grey, blue...oh so lovely.
Although I want to see it in different lights...I do like that Sugarcane Pink...oh boy this might be harder than I thought! :)
In this first picture it is: Sugarcane Pink, then Soft Silk and far right is Fragile Blue
the dark paneled room is our back entry way and it moves right into our family room...so I want both to be painted the same! Time to get rid of that dark entry!!! Yay!
I thought I would like the Soft Silk but it looks purple/lavender in here...ugh!!! I do like the Sugarcane Pink, it is more of a creamy sugar cookie color but, really my first instinct is the fragile blue...soft cloudy blue, in some places almost looks more grey...oh so soothing.
Now I have to actually make myself think about taking everything off the walls, and going out and buying paint and going for it! I will keep you updated. I am not sure how soon I will get to it...but at least I am on the right track! A perfect cure for the gloomy days while I wait for SPRING! :)
Have you done anything new in the painting scene lately? What colors do you lean towards? I am trying to break out of my red,green and yellows...and lean towards some lighter colors...how about you? Of course my hubbie said, "I like the green in the family room, it is perfect the way it is, why do you want to change?" ugh...
happy rest of your Wednesday!
