A Sneak Peak at the Basement Colors

Here I am behind on my blogging again. Crappy me. I'm telling you - work is hectic! So, while I work away... here's a sneak peak at the new basement colours. Remember the layout (here) - take a guess and tell me in the family room / office, where do you think these colours are going?


Remember we have wood barn doors going in and the red couches will be moving down there. Hopefully it will all be painted soon... in the meantime, keep guessing. :o)

What Oh What Color Should I Paint?

I need your help! I have this antique dresser that I used to love, but now in the new place I just don't feel the same about it. I have one last hope at rescuing my love for it before I sell it to a new home - change the color. It looked perfect in the cape cod foyer, the green color, dark woods and then this dresser. It's actually a deep purple outdoor paint that is used on decks and allows the grains to show through... but it usually looks more like brown. Here it is, remember?

Well, in the new place it just doesn't fit in. Although it nestles perfectly in between the wall and closet in the spare room, or should I say our nieces room. Here it is now, you can definitely see more of a purple color:

Now here's where you come in. I have very light grey walls and I want to do something that will add a punch of color to the room. Although, I may have to change the chair you see in the corner of the picture above. Here are the colors I was sort of thinking:

So, here you have it. A light creamy white, yellow or pale turquoise? I was also thinking maybe a darker shade of grey, or number 3, 4, 9 or 10. There are  just way too many colors to choose from. I even thought a nice lime green may look good. ERR! I'm helpless. So, do me a favor, write a quick response below and let me know what color I should choose. Please help restore the love I once had for the beautiful antique dresser.

Paint, paint and more paint!

I can't seem to get past all of this painting. While our house slowly comes to a finish, I find myself painting more than usual right now and I hate it. No seriously. I absolutely detest painting right now... but I must push forward. And, I must confess, I have already picked out my paint colors for the next home. Yes, I have no problem wanting, just doing. And since I'm strapped for blogging time these days, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite paint colors and schemes:

I've already got a file on my desktop full of images and notes for the next place. Yes, we have picked a place... we're just in the middle of getting final information before making our first offer! Very exciting, but even more exciting is moving on to the next chapter of our lives and selling our major accomplishment. The hard work has been completely worth it and I know I'll miss our place when the time comes, but it was a great first home... Yes, picture are to come - soon! I promise.
