I have had an epiphany about the color orange: It's the tight white pants of the paint world.
Yes, these are the life changing revelations that reveal themselves to me when I least expect it, whether I'm ready or not.
What can I say.
But you know the way that there is a rather specific and limited type of anatomy that will look good in tight white pants, namely, nothing less than perfectly sculpted and cellulite-free thighs and butt? Like those pants, orange paint requires a certain type of house anatomy to work as a wall color.
And if you've got it, you've gotta work it.
Maybe I'm making up for not being a tight white pants girl.
Anyway, that all does have a point, I promise.
So I've been working on the bedroom, and I went into the whole project intending to provide you with full disclosure and the down and dirty before pictures that always seem to make the after pictures that much more satisfying.
But I sort of flaked on it until I was almost done unloading the room, so this is all the before I have:
Fast forward almost two weeks (I caught a nasty balloon-head-attached-to-body-by-string cold), and I am about 2/3 done:
As usual, the wall color proved difficult to get an accurate read on in photographs, but it's Benjamin Moore Blue Nova, kind of an inky, purply blue.
I'm not 100% in love with it yet, but I think by the time I put on the finishing touches and get the room accessorized, it's going to work.
