Is it weird that I love paint?
Not that I love paint in the manner of I. Love. You. Paint...
But I love how changing things up makes me feel.
It's inexpensive and gives me a big bang for my buck kinda feeling. you know?
I have had this brown for years.
Relaxed Khaki by Sherwin Williams and it's been good to me.
I think my husband had a hard time parting with the blue ceilings mostly.
I fixed that problem and I will share that secret with you too.
It was just time to go.
So how did I pick my new color?
I walked around my house and studied each room.
I narrowed it down to may favorite color of all times.
Above is the recipe for my kitchen color.
I wanted to stay in the same family so I had Lowes lighten it 50%.
The recipe for my LR color is above.
It is PERFECT!!!
This color is grey enough to date any color without making a fuss.
I could throw any color in here and it would play nice.
You don't find that often in colors.
I even folded laundry in here just so I could enjoy the color.
OK... maybe not.
I was just too lazy to put it up but I enjoyed the color all the same LOL.
And just to really change the room up a bit, I moved my secretary desk in.
I love how it just fits in here.
So you may be wondering how I made my hunny happy with removing his beloved blue ceiling?
I did an old color trickery...
I lightened the wall color about 75% (recipe below) for the ceiling.
And you wanna what?
I didn't even noticed I painted over his blue until I pointed it out.
He's happy. I'm happy.
I still have some playing around to do for the walls but I'm really loving the blank canvas.
It's like that clean crisp feeling when you remove your Christmas decor feeling. Ahhhhh
This huge wall behind my sofa has me thinking of a few ideas.
I hope to tackle them soon.
Want to make a huge change on a small budget?
It's a win win..
I think I burned 1403 calories on my laddermaster lol.
