I picked up the paint yesterday at Home Depot. This morning before we went to breakfast we stopped at HD again and picked out a new rug for the guest room. It's a light beige, nothing exciting but hopefully it can be installed by Friday of next week. That would be nice because James and Caitlin will be sleeping in that room Friday night.
I needed another gallon of paint so John made me lunch and then went back to HD. Now, as much as he would LOVE to say he did me a big favor we all know how some people LOVE to spend time in the home repair stores.
He came back with the second gallon and a ceiling fan for the room.
I still have a wall or two to finish and it's taken me about four hours to get done what I have but it looks great and boy that Behr paint covers great. I only have to do one coat.
I was holding the paint chip sample next to the rug for John to see how pretty it was going to look when the HD guy helping us said, "Oh, look, it's the same color as the HD logo." sigh..............Well, the darkest shade is but this is three shades lighter.
I told James on the phone that I was painting the room a marmalade color and he said, "Oh...................orange."
I think it looks more like the colors from Santa Fe when we were out there.
It's got a wild west feel to it.
Of course, since our walls have been white for going on eight years this is a big deal for us, you know. :)
