Okay, so our living room and dining room have been repainted for the third time in less than two years.
A little nuts, you say?
Well, let’s just say it took awhile to get our groove going for this space.
A Not-So-Quick Recap
Our LR/DR takes up the entire addition on the back of our house. The addition was built in about 1996, the house was built in 1942. The addition is 332 square feet of our total 1100 square foot house. The addition is one big fish bowl, there are 17 floor to ceiling windows. Really it’s like a sunroom on steroids…cause in the summer we bake back here.
But I digress. If you recall, what little walls we do have in this space were painted a sickly yellow when we moved in. Not a buttery yellow. Puke yellow. Snot yellow. (Enough visuals? Sorry.) So we painted two walls Behr Stepping Stones and the other two Behr Antique White.
On to this year…
…when we redid the back room after the ice damming; We painted a lot brighter. Sherwin Williams Humourous Green and SW Open Seas. Which I loved together. But then we lived with it for a bit. We took pictures for the blog in here. And I loved it a little less. And then a little less again.
And then I couldn’t live with it anymore. See…
So three days before we were to begin homeschool for the year, we moved everything into the center of the room and I painted for two days. Stress much?
But now that all is put back I am in love!!!
The colour is another Sherwin Williams paint called Analytical Grey.
What do you think? Do you miss the crazy green and blue? Or do you prefer the more subtle greige? Would you rather use wild paint or leave room for colourful accents here and there?
