Remember when you were guessing at which shade of green paint I might choose for my living room walls?
If the suspense has been getting to you (ha), let me reveal the correct choice. For those of you who chose the middle one, you
are were correct. That's right ... at the time of that post I was 99% positive that was thee color. Well that was until the painter came to give me a quote and politely inquired if I would mind if he offered a few other suggestions.
Six more choices later and the winner is ...
Had I been browsing through the paint chips, this one would have never been my choice.
However, once the painter explained his thoughts on the matter I had to agree.
He thought the green I had chosen would make the walls the focal point rather than the sofa and accessories.
After he painted several more samples on the wall I settled on this one. It's hard to tell from the sample but it does have some yellow and green in it.
I've been checking it out in daylight, evening light, rainy afternoons, early morning, etc...
It took a little getting used to as it's different than what I had been thinking.
Last night I painted a big portion of one wall to try to get a better feel for it.
Today I took a picture, cropped out the part that I hadn't painted and voila ...
I think it will be fine.
Thank you for your sweet comments on the Note Card Party post.
I know some of you had requested the peach pie recipe.
I promise to share it in my next post.
For those of you who asked about the vintage juicer, my sister-in-law got it from a friend who had found it at a garage sale. She let me borrow it for blogging purposes.
