Inquiring minds want to know...what you decided on?
Well, Cindy, since you asked I'll tell you. Saturday morning Nickel didn't get out the door until close to 10 am so my day didn't really start until then. It's not I couldn't have gone out for coffee without him, I just didn't want to. I got dressed and just spent the morning relaxing. After he left I went to the ATM, drained the account (just kidding, but I did get some money) and went shopping. My first and really, only stop was at Lowes. There I found the color I wanted to paint Peanut's room. "Bonita Berry", it's a Dora color. Very bold. So bold I could only do one wall pink.
But standing there I saw an aqua color that I just fell right in love with, it's name was Cool Aqua. Here's a couple of pictures I took this morning. I was sitting down trying to get a good angle. I missed. Oh well. You'll just have to deal with it, I'm not going to take a million pictures of my living room just to find the perfect angle! The lighting at 7:30 am isn't the greatest either.
I was actually pretty sacred after the first coat that all my green plants (like the calla lily pictured here) and it's pot would clash, but in real life it doesn't. I guess the aqua paint and the greens have similar under-tones that they actually look pleasing to the eye. Even the blue chair looks fine sitting next to the wall. Of course the pictures don't do it justice. You'll just have to take my word for it or come over and see it for yourself!
The pink in Peanut's ballerina pictures (taken last year for Christmas) really pop and my hallway is red and the look good together. Who knew that red and aqua were actually nice compliments to each other. Well, obviously the last bride I had because those were her colors and impressed me. The hall has been red for several years now. I would have never chosen the aqua to go next to the red without seeing them in the wedding last month.
So, that's basically what I did on my day off. I painted two of my living room walls and one of Peanuts. While the paint dried I watched Pride and Prejudice and Just Like Heaven. I also watched several TLC programs and cleaned other parts of the house. I was very very relaxed and ready for the work week to start on Monday. I might let the two of them go out of town again someday. Just not soon, I like the rest of my walls. :-)
