I'm trying to get this list checked off but it seems to being going a little slower than I'd like. By "slower than I'd like", I mean if each task isn't completed by the time I snap my phalanges (like Mary Poppin's) or wiggle my schnoz (like Samantha from Bewitched) then it seems to be taking for-eh-ver (like in the Sandlot). The idea was to paint our kitchen, living and dining room the same colors Janell used in her master bedroom. She used Sherwin Williams' Universal Khaki and Dapper Tan. When I showed her bedroom pictures to the Mr., he actually really liked it! I was stunned. I was so excited to get some samples made up at the Depot and run home to graffiti up our house. That was until I painted the sample colors on our walls and ceiling.
Uhhh. Er. Um.
Here's a (barely) closer look...
Yes, we still have popcorn ceilings.
And yes, that is paint on the crown molding.
So sue me.
Ok, don't do that because I'm poor and I'll never get my list done if I'm even more broke that I already am.
The color on the wall is Universal Khaki which turned out to be a little too greenish. The color in the corner is Behr's Harvest Brown. The darkest color on the ceiling is Dapper Tan, which looks ok in the picture but in some light looks like a pukey greenish grey color. Like this...
'Pukey greenish' is definitely NOT what I was going for.
The color on the far left in the picture above and on the far right of the picture above this one are a half & half mix of Dapper Tan and Harvest Brown.
I can only assume that the color-changing-paint-problem is because we have a very large window on the West side of the room and French doors on the East side of the room. The light in here changes more than the dance floor from Saturday Night Fever
The following picture is the main reason
I wanted to paint this room to begin with.
The color that's on there now is Behr's Catham Tan which is fine in the afternoon light when it's a warm toasty shade of brown. Which you can see in some of the pictures from this post. But, throughout parts of the day it turns this weird purpley mauvey flesh tone brown color.
Here's the wall with the French doors:
Why!! Why can't you look like THIS???
That was me yellin' at the room, not you.
I don't want you to paint yourself khaki and brown.
Oh well. I'll figure it out. Just as soon as the paralysis wears off and I can feel my painter's arm again.
Have you ever had painters paralysis?
