Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! In honor of this day of green, I thought I would share with you the torturous process I’m going through trying to pick out a green paint color for my laundry room.
We’re going through a large renovation of our home right now, and one of the things that I wanted to do for our laundry room was to add white cabinets to hold all of the detergents and cleaning supplies that took over the one lone shelf we had before.
When the cabinets came in this past week, I was very excited. That is until the contractor suggested that since they were going to put the cabinets up the next day, maybe I would like to paint the laundry room that night. I knew he was right, it would be the perfect time to take out the washer and dryer, and paint the room green.
The thing is, I have spent the last month or so trying to find the right green paint colors for the house, without much luck. I have all kinds of greens on different pieces of fiber boards, but none of them seem quite right. So, my heart sank when I knew I was going to have to pull the trigger and pick a color.
So, here’s the one I came up with, BUT it’s not going to stay.
It’s OK, but I wanted something a little lighter, more of an apple green. I wanted to open up the laundry room doors, and see a light, fresh, happy color. This color of green is bright, but is a little darker than I want. This room is small, and has no natural light, and I was surprised how dark this color ended up being on the walls. So, before the floor goes in I’ll be painting the room a different green.
Do you have trouble picking paint colors? I find it amazing how different a color can look in different rooms versus what it looks like on a paint chip.
So, stay tuned… hopefully soon I can reveal the green color that I’m looking for!
