After living in my home for nine months and living with the
poop chocolate brown dungeon office, I finally slapped a swatch of color on the walls to motivate me to just go ahead and paint the room already. What color, you ask? Sharkey Gray by Martha Stewart.
Already, I am loving it and imagining how much lighter and brighter this room will be when this color graces all four walls and the trim is painted a bright shiny white.
Just as a side note, I have to say that I love that paint companies finally wised up and started offering sample sizes for us DIYers to try. I can't tell you how many quarts of paint I went through in my first home trying to find the right shade of a color to put on the wall. These little testers are fantastic - the Sharkey Gray came in a ready-made tester (complete with brush) and I had another sample whipped up real quick by the paint counter gal for a color to try in my entry. (I'm saving that one for later - one room at a time, right?)
I also love this little paint touch up kit, which I bought as a paint sampler kit:
Genius, I tell ya. Genius.
And to not let it go to waste... I plan on rinsing out the container and brush and letting the girls "help" mama a little when it does come time for painting day.
