Yep, I'm Color Challenged!!

It's the day before the new counter tops arrive - and I've spent the day priming, painting and RE-painting the kitchen walls.

As much as I love color, after I had carefully selected a caramel color to contrast the counter tops, and painstakingly applied, when it dried - it just didn't work!   Has anyone else done this?   It just dried darker, much darker in fact, that the sample.  And what I envisioned as being cozy warm turned out to be NOT SO COZY WARM! 

So perhaps after the counter tops are installed, I'll give it another whirl.  For now, it's just simple, clean and calm.

But the bright side is that a fresh coat of paint always makes things brighter.

Happy Monday everyone!

Before I (hubby) painted the kitchen in this house I must have had 15 color samples all over the walls. It was awful looking but I found the color I wanted.

Yeah, I did like Marla when we painted our kitchen. I was going to go with green and just never could find the right one. I would imagine that people often change a time or two to get it just right.
