I always admired people for taking the time to paint a bedroom or refresh the living room walls, but I tended to shy away from the liquid buckets of pigment. Well, after indulging in a few too many free swatch samples at the hardware store, I fell into a color wheel high and emerged with the perfect hues of vibrant yellow and deep turquoise.
I must admit, cracking open the paint can meant for the bedroom was a little nerve-racking, I think I mumbled to myself "what have you done?" but my love for color stepped in and forced the first roll across the wall. Swish, swish, splat onto the arm (and a bit on my face), and the wall gleamed in a hue that is pretty close to the Tiffany's box. Add in a few nightstand touches and the bedroom was ready to go. Now, my glowing wall of blue-green is better than any standard white I've seen.
