Painting Day

Today I have donated my whole day to painting the spare bedroom. I hope to have it completed by supper hour. Hope being the key word here.
The green on the left is the new colour, the purple splotches on the left is the old.

I can only paint one side of the room, two coats, then move the furniture to that side and paint the other side.
This is the 10 inch deep closet, with shelves put in for my books and beautiful trinkets. I have yet to paint the top section because the ladder was not in the room when I began. It is coming along.

When I first opened the paint tin this morning, I thought, "What have I bought? It's too light, too grayish." But it isn't. It is exactly what I wanted. A light sage green.

Now on with the painting.

Good day for painting. That heat has broken (for a bit?). I love watching room transformations and like your new colour. Looking forward to seeing the end result. Good luck with your painting.

love the colour, what brand of paint and what colour number. Actually I like the lilac and the green together as well.

I am back to blogging,

I've always loved that color. I've found that green is a great backdrop for decorating. Hope you'll show us the room when you finish!

The green is very pretty. My bedroom is green. My daughter chose a dark green. I normally would not let my kids choose dark colors...so hard to paint over when you want to get rid of it! Your white trim looks so nice! love,andrea
