Well, that was what I thought. I was dreaming of painting our bedroom in this color for months, literally months. A dear friend had even given me a gift card for my birthday, I was just waiting for the big Sherwin Williams sale.
Imagine my frustration when, after a night of painting, my beautiful blue-green looked more gray and cement-like on the wall. You can actually see the difference in the picture. The pretty blue is more of what I was hoping for, but the grayed blue is how it really looked.
Just a little back story on our bedroom. Our bedroom seems to suck all life and light out of wall colors. It is an issue I have struggled with since we have moved in. In the past I've chosen a bright color to counteract the limited light. And it did brighten up the room, I just wanted something a bit more pale and light for a change.
(Please note that this room never was completed and just a Hodge-podge of items- Soon that will be history)
So I had make a decision. Do I go ahead and repaint or just leave it like it is and deal with it later?
I was tempted to just leave it alone, since we have guests coming at the end of the week and I really needed to get the room pulled back together, but I went ahead and bought a new color. I figured, since all the furniture was pulled out from the walls, it was easier now than later.
I made a quick decision to go more towards the cream side versus a bright hue (back to my love of Scandinavian Country), and choose Glass of Milk by Martha Stewart.
Funny thing is, when I started edging I found I loved the Sea Salt and the Glass of Milk together.
Yep, more to come....
