The biggest hurdle in painting a room is the colour.
Always the colour. Getting it just right, exactly the shade of the paint chip you picked out at the store or off the internet.
But it rarely happens. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve repainted a room to get just the right shade (and sometimes, you never do).
Nevermind you brought home a bunch of chips and held it up to the wall. Even painting a large spot with a small test can can’t predict the result.
Yes, I know. Depends on the lighting. I figured that out eventually. And why neutrals are the best plan.
Same goes for the weather, more or less.
That bright, inviting sky I saw this morning through the bathroom window screamed ‘summer!’ to my brain.
Poke my head out the door to verify, and ‘Oh. I can see my breath…’
