I have the walls of the kitchen/office stripped of everything ornamental and serviceable. It's been ten years since I painted this area and I need a change. I spend a lot of my time in this combined room and the thought came to me that it is like "operation central" for running the rest of the house, our lives.
I've been spinning my wheels in varying stages of organization and clutter-clearing in that mess of an extra room upstairs. But in spite of my efforts the final push to empty the room completely in order to paint and figure out what to do with the floor just isn't happening.....or not happening fast enough for me. This might be roundabout thinking, but I really believe that I need to make the changes to the kitchen and my office area before I will be able to focus on the more miserable tasks upstairs.
We went to a local paint store over the weekend and I bought a bunch of samples home to paint patches on the walls to find the right color. My husband thinks this is a waste of my time because "there aren't even any chips" in the paint currently on the walls. But he did accompany me to the paint store and his opinions helped me to settle on the samples I brought home.
I'll be using Devine Color, the marvelous paint that we had the professional painter use in the rest of the downstairs three years ago. I love this product, even love the way it is marketed. The link below, for instance, takes you to a Color Peek show that you have to see for yourself (embedding the slideshow is not an option at the site) because there is no way I could describe this to you! It's not a long show, only a few minutes, and I think you will appreciate the break in your day while viewing this feast for the eyes. Click the link below and...enjoy!
