It's only Wednesday?

I thought today was Thursday, Camille said no, it's Wednesday. Oh yeah, you're right. It's the 100th day of school today and the kids are excited.

It is unseasonably warm today and I've been seeing robins. The urge to Spring Clean is moving in, I really want to take everything out of every closet and reorganize, declutter, and then I think about the work that would take- and the time ... I hesitate. Soon the hesitation will be gone and Goodwill will get another donation.

Why is it so hard to pick a color to paint beige walls? That will happen soon, I despise flat paint but it's another project that takes a lot of work, especially with molding. I paint samples painted all over the walls, I think I have a few colors picked. I'm a little scared of that reddish-orange accent wall I have in my mind.

Wow, it looks totally different online. Okay Wednesday, here I come...

Jessica, glad to see you are returning to the world of blogging. Welcome back! FWIW, I LOVE the red wall in my kitchen, the one I debated and debated over for far too long. The great thing about paint - it can be covered. It's more work, of course, but it CAN be done. So, go for it! If nothing else, you'll have a story to share ;) Have a great day!

I think it looks like a fun accent color. Be bold! :)

NO ONE should EVER use flat paint. Ugh! Our entire house was painted with that yucky stuff when it was built. We still have over half the house to paint. I so cannot wait.

I did not paint samples on the wall. I took a few samples home from the store to look at. Colors ALWAYS look different in YOUR light at home. I learned that one the hard way in the last house. :) Anyway, I picked two colors we liked from the pile when we were home. The next time I was in town I went to the store and picked up a few more sample cards. We taped them to the wall between the fireplace and the curtains. I probably used five cards. I can see the color great and now know that is the color we'll use to paint. I've lived with for awhile now and still love it.

Good luck!
