Home Improvements?

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!


  1. I've done that. Dining room got painted three times a few years back. Being an artist, it was hard to face the fact that I couldn't pick the right color.

  2. Maybe the problem is that there are so many to choose from!!

  3. Been there, done that. After four different colors for my kitchen I settled on the original cream color. How odd is that!!

    Have a wonderful rest of August.

  4. Thanks Frannie. It's so nice to know that it's not just me who has struggled with color choice! I went from yellow to *butterscotch* to *periwinkle gray* to *arctic moon*. I'm stopping at *arctic moon*. (Who thinks of these color names anyway?)
