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!
I would have done 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!
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!
So, this garage project will now snowball into
painting the interior door black
We will probably end up getting new door hardware,
setting up neater garage organization…
oh, the list could go on and on!
But at least we are moving along.
I am just trying to pick a garage color.
It will definitely be 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?
