I've been looking at paint samples until my eyes are crossing. As of right now the only rooms that are painted are the main bathroom and Hunter's room. I posted photos of those before but here they are again.So here are a few of the paint colors that I am thinking about for a few of the other rooms. Nothing is set in stone yet, but I think I like these colors. This first sample is what I am thinking about painting the main part of the house. This would be for the living room, hallway, my sewing room and the 40 ft wall upstairs that over looks the living room. We figured up the square footage and would need about 15 gallon of paint for this!! I know it sounds like alot but these are big rooms and I have a 22ft tall wall in the living room and that 40ft wall that over looks the living room is 12ft tall! So with so much to paint in these areas I didn't want to go too crazy. This one is called French Toast. What do you think?
This is what I am thinking for the kitchen. It is called Suddenly Saffron. It is an orange/brown color, actually more orange than brown but not a bright orange. My kitchen is 20x20ft so I will need several gallon of it too.
My bedroom is what I really didn't have a plan for before we moved in. Here are a few photos and maybe you can tell me what you think. Here is my plan....my master bedroom is also 20x20 and has 2 windows and a set of french doors that will eventually go out onto a private deck. My bedroom furniture is all antique pieces. This is the dresser that I have in there but I don't have the mirror up there yet, I was trying to wait until I painted the walls.
And here is our bed, complete with the original metal springs! I'm thinking that I will paint the bed a flat black or a dark bronze. I know that may sound weird but I've had the bed white for years and decorated with blue/yellow/white. The other bed that my grandmother had was dark. I would like to maybe use the Courthouse Step quilt (that is still not finished) If you remember it has darker fabrics and beige background fabrics Most of them are Civil War Reproduction fabrics. So now that I have told you that long story....here is the paint that I am thinking about for the master. It is called Tea Stained. It is a few shades darker than the paint sample for the living room. Now that I have bored you all to death talking about paint colors. I will leave you with a photo of our supper for tonight. Rotisserie Chicken. I put the rotisserie rub on it and popped it in my little rotisserie oven and it was done in about 2 hours. Served with mashed potatoes, peas and rolls. Hopefully tomorrow I will be back with some log cabin blocks to show!!!
