I thought I would spend the month of August doing a little sprucing-up around the house. Last week I slapped a fresh coat of paint in my son's bedroom, felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment, and eagerly turned to the next project on my list, updating the paint in my little powder room. After three trips to the paint store and the application of two very different colors of paint, I am still unhappy with the results. Tomorrow I will try color number three. Looking on the bright side, there are still three weeks left in August, (plenty of time to settle on a color, no?) and I have a pile of paint chips, in a rainbow of colors, I can use in my sketchbook!
