We decided to give it a much needed fact lift. We are basically changing everything except the shower/tub and the vanity. However we will be painting the oak of the vanity and mirror a dark brown color. We are hoping it works (a neighbor of ours did it), but if it doesn’t we don’t care since it’s a little dated. (Like I would appose to getting a new one?)
Anyway we had one of our typical marathon trips to the depot, which I didn’t mind too much because A) we haven’t had one of those in about 6 months (thank god), and B) I got to pick out all the fun stuff…like a new light fixture, new paint, and all of the bathroom hardware. (New flooring and toilet are still to come!)
I had decided on a light green color about a month ago that will match the shower curtain we use. It all seemed to be going good until we finished the first coat last night and realized that our hallway is practically the SAME SHADE! How the heck did this happen? Then John reminds me how almost every room has green in it, and how he knows I love green so much that he was surprised that I didn’t marry it. WHATEVER! I don’t even like green! I have no idea how the other greens got in the house. Needless to say I am pretty miffed. I like a variety of bold colors in my house, and all this green is not cutting it!
I then started to wonder why I hadn’t chosen a nice soft yellow. That is another color that would have matched the shower curtain and we used that color in our old condo. Dang dang dang! I was so mad at myself.
Then my color blind husband asked me what color goes with dark brown…orange? Yes ORANGE!! Can you just imagine how good that will look? John was thinking of a lighter orange, but I had to tell him if we went that route then it would be peach, and I did not want it to match our kitchen. Enough with the matching already! I'm thinking more of a rusty/burnt/terracotta orange.
I went back to my favorite hardware store tonight to pick up some new and improved orange paint swatches. We will see what color we decide on. I'm hoping for a medium shade...I think John’s worried that I might want to go this route:
But even if I do…will he be able to tell?
