Nope, I haven’t disappeared again! Things around here are just busy as usual. I’m currently trying to find the perfect paint color for my bedroom and also working on my headboard. First things first…. I made a little trip to Sherwin Williams the other day to look at a few gray paint samples. While I was there I FINALLY got my very own paint chip book! This will make my life soooo much easier! I think the guy at Sherwin Williams was sick of me coming in, grabbing a few paint cards, leaving, and then repeating this three days in a row. Ha.
I thought I found the “right paint color” for my bedroom but I can’t live with it! The lighting in my bedroom does crazy weird things to my paint colors. For some reason the shade of “white” that I choose is pulling a crazy bright yellow and it’s to dang bright for me! Here is what I’ve been doing the past week…. starring at paint samples!
Gray can be hard to get right because it pulls blue and purple shades in certain lights. I love all of these colors but the darker ones are too dark for my room and the lighter ones are pulling that blue or purple. You don’t get any of that from this picture but it’s true, promise ;)
I’ve probably spent at least $30 in paint samples… sigh. I gotta get it right this time! After putting a few of the grays next to my wall I decided that they clash really bad. No worries though I think it’s safe to say that I’ve found the right color this time. It’s SW 6035 Gauzy White. It’s the perfect mauvy, whitish, pink lol I know… none of those colors are really the same but depending on the time of day it pulls one of those three colors in my room! It’s lovely :)
Here is a sneak peak of my headboard. Things didn’t go quite as planned when I started tufting it. I’ve made a compromise but it’s one that I can’t wait to share with you! This headboard is going to ROCK after I’m done tufting all 73 holes. CAN’T WAIT!
