I just thought I'd tell you that. But that's not what this post is about.
I'm a big fan of neutral colors. They are calming - especially in the city. But I have to admit, that I always need a little color somewhere in my home to break it all up. I decided the hallway would be the perfect place to do this. Which hallway, you ask? THE ONLY ONE WE HAVE. It leads from the den to the master bedroom and the boys room.
Normally, Rod is the painter in our home. I don't pick up a paintbrush. I'm not allowed to. I am a rather impatient and messy painter. Imagine a monkey, who is also ADD, trying to paint his habitat. With his feet. That's what it looks like when I paint a room. It's not pretty, people.
But at the store the other day, I found this:
It looks amazing, right? Paint a room in under an hour? No more messy tape and lines? It makes painting look like a breeze. I bought it and tried it out.
Rod had to repaint the whole thing after my failed attempt.
The end result looks great. I love the color. It's moroccan spice from Benjamin Moore. And it matches the silk pendant I brought with us from our Colorado home.
The hall is filled with black and white pictures.
I would now like to take this moment to ask the universe when boys begin putting down the toilet lid?
Let me know what you think of the hallway. Do you add a punch of color somewhere in your home, too?
