Paper crafting hiatus...
Okay, it's time to put away the cardmaking stuff & paint inside the house... I have paint samples everywhere. Have bought 7+ tester colors for various rooms and painted large posterboard to move the sample colors around the house to test in different lighting & rooms. The window coverings were temporary, so they'll get a change, too, eek! It's really driving me crazy. I hope I eventually like at least one of the colors.
We haven't been able to see our home interior with any sunshine lately as it's been overcast for most of the past several weeks. Wonder what color we'll end up with. Here are before/after photos for the master bath that I finished earlier last year. We transitioned from the previous owners' dramatic red color to a more sedate tan. Looks pretty dull in photos, not much like what we see inside our home.
Before (previous owners' red decor):
After (with our tan color & new mirrors, lights, etc):
Color testing on-line is very difficult. I hope it goes well for the great room as that is one I don't want to have to repaint for awhile. Living with dark grey/taupe with a wood trim is something we just don't much care for... while we would love to change out the trim everywhere, that is not an immediate option. So finding a warmer, pleasing alternative to coordinate with everything is challenging. Wish me luck. Won't get to post much craft stuff for awhile...
