When we first moved into our house back in 2004 the first room we painted as the master bedroom. Wanting a space that would promote good sleeping and tranquility I convinced Kev that the darkest of dark blues would be a good choice. And it was....for about 4 years. This past weekend Kev finally decided he'd had enough of the blue and that it was time for a change. So....off to Home Depot we went - like thousands of other homeowners on a long weekend - gathered paint samples and bought all the requisite supplies to tackle the job of covering up dark, dark blue.
3 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint later we have a brand new room. All I can say is WOW. What a difference a color change makes.
Here is the before (we were still finishing the floors!) and the after.
So we went from the deep abyss to an enchanting land (that's actually the name of the new color). The green is actually much lighter than in the photo but you get the overall idea.
OK. No more painting...for, like, the next 10 years!
