We are painting the accent walls in our house. And negotiating to have the main areas repainted by the professionals. They did a bang up job but the yellow that looked so innocent and bright on that tiny little paint chip has morphed into a really, really, bright, knock-you-over kind of yellow. So, we're going to have to redo that. The other rooms are really coming along quite nicely, though. This is one of my favorites. It's the girls room, pink on one wall, stripes painted on one wall and white on the other two. (The hope in that is that leaving two walls white will keep you from feeling like you're drowning in Pepto Bismol)
And here is the Yellow Room. The picture doesn't do it justice. I almost fell the first time I walked in. I'm considering a letter to Sherwin Williams thanking them for the subtle humor that I wish we'd picked up on before we painted. The color is called "Butter Up." It has a base ball-y sound, don't you think? That's because every time you walk into the room, it's going to hit your senses like a buttered baseball going 70MPH. I have been working on these projects for 2 days straight, 10 -12 hours a day and I'm feeling really worn down and tired and more than a little discouraged. I'm glad today was a rest day but I have a full sheet of paper filled with To-Do's for tomorrow and none of them even take into consideration any regular household things. Send me your well wishes. I sure need them.
