Itchin’ to Paint Again…

A few weekends ago, I was tackling my to-do list around the house and began filling holes in the walls with spackle. Let me just say there were a lot of holes to fill as a result of my hammer-happy ways. So then, of course, I had to touch up those areas with paint. Once the paint dried, I noticed that in the hallway and office, that the colors did not match up! I do not know if I did not stir the paint well enough or if the paint is too old. In any order, I was debating painting over the Sherwin Williams Whole Wheat anyway.

Then, I stumbled across this photo of Joni’s new living room that she posted this week over at her blog, Cote de Texas. I was immediately inspired by the color of her creamy, mushroom-y walls. Joni used Pratt & Lambert Feathered Gray. Such a perfect shade of gray-ish/taupe!  (click on each picture to make larger)

And, Sherwin Williams is having a sale this weekend! 40% of all paints and stains and 30% off painting supplies. I suppose this is my perfect opportunity to repaint the office and hallway!

Guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend! Good-bye yellow! Hello gray! Stay tuned as I post before/after photos. :)
