I got the painting blues


History repeated itself this week. I am a freak when it comes to PAINT! I stress about color, I buy the wrong color, I return the color, thankfully to be altered by Sherwin Williams who has become my new best friend! We are moving at a rapid pace this week, finalizing colors....as you can see, I switched from a robin egg blue to historical retro green after much cursing, foot stomping, brush slinging and even a few tears!Then I sit back and finally say "ahh. I love it"  Later this week we hope to install tin ceiling tiles and maybe even a floor! And maybe the "Gotta Get a Kitchen Blues" will all fade away.

It's so hard to select the right color. I am like you, always changing and shifting. I did the same thing in a bathroom--it began as robin's egg blue but morphed into a cool green. Blue's can tend to be too cold for me (living in a cool coastal climate). Hope you end up loving your kitchen.
