Peek-a-boo paint test

Happy President's Day! What better way to spend this holiday other than painting?!

That's exactly what I'm doing today. I'm super excited to be making progress in my daughter's room redo. The ideas have been whirling around in my brain for months now and today's the day when installation begins!

Last week we finalized the paint color. Thought I'd share a little paint testing tip...what do you do if you're not ready to commit 100% and you're not sure you have the original paint color on hand to cover up your tests if you hate them? You put your samples in a discreet place, of course! I chose a spot behind the chalkboard in her room. Why not paint something fun while your at it?...

Yep, little heart paint sample hiding behind the chalkboard. 

Curious what paint color we decided to go with? Here's a clue (I kid you not)...
That's right, friends, Rhino by Behr.

Based on the name, you'd think we're going after a dark grey, but it's actually a light color that reads very blue.

So stay tuned as we take her room from this...



To something more along the lines of this...

Man, I wish I could just blink and it'd be done. It's going to be 1000 times better than before!

If you're looking for a little help or inspiration in your own home, contact me. I'd love to work with you.
