We finally decided on a color for my son’s bedroom!
After trying many samples from light grays to dark blues, we ended up choosing Amsterdam by Benjamin Moore.
As you might remember, this was one of the colors in the running and this is also the color of my master bathroom.
Here is how it will look next to the new gray and white curtains we ordered.
We thought we were going to go with something a little darker like Philipsburg Blue but we both agreed it would be a little too dark.
As you can see, Philipsburg is a much deeper color than what we are used to in this room!
We weren’t ready to go quite that dark so we went with the Amsterdam.
As you can see, the colors are similar but the Amsterdam (on left) is just a little lighter.
So the painters are coming next week! Hooray!
At one point I though about doing the painting myself but I get nervous with darker colors.
But the best part of having the painters come is that I convinced my husband to have them paint the garage too!
Yes, after 13 years of living in this house, we STILL had a garage that looked like this!
Of course, my silly husband thought leaving it that way made the house look new…
Uh…I don’t think we are fooling anyone, dear.
The only thing it did was make us look like we didn’t care about our garage!…And like we were too cheap to get it painted!
At some point, we’ll probably end up getting new door hardware…then setting up neater garage organization…oh, the list could go on and on!
But at least we are moving along. Now, I’m just trying to pick a garage color. Most likely, I’ll choose a light beige or grayish color.
The question is the ceiling… Should I paint the ceiling white or just paint it the same as the wall color?
What are your thoughts?
