Last time I painted my whole inside of the house turned into different shades of green and that was about 5 yrs or more ago so I am going back to slightly different shades of creamy warm whites . Pick for downstairs bedroom is Milk Paint by Olympic That is my first stop.
You taught them right. I am too much of a stubborn "free-spirited" person that gets myself in trouble from trying to wrestle things through my own way.
Green is my favorite! But I bet it will be nice to freshen things up with some warm creamy colors. I'll be going with a combo of light blue, gray, and light taupe. Hopefully I don't change my mind in the process from now forward or I'll start driving my husband (who is doing the bulk of the painting) nuts - I've already decided the color on the wall in the photo you saw is too dark and I took it in to get adjusted.
Well the blizzard actually came! We are mostly getting tons of crazy freezing wind but not a super lot of snow yet. We are just outside of Colorado Springs, and in the Springs they are getting dumped on. It is definitely COLD. The stove is holding up fine, though.
