Wow, you guys amaze me. Most of you guessed the dining room. A few said the master bedroom and a few said the kitchen. I love my master and kitchen colors for now. Obviously y'all lied when you said you liked my yellow dining room. Just kidding. I did like the new yellow color when I first did it because it was much brighter than the way it was before. Let's take a look.
This was the original color that I painted it when we built the house in 1995.
We loved it this blue for quite a long time. Too long. Mr. Savvy didn't want me to paint this room, but he lets me make most all of the decorating decisions.
This was an improvement over the dark blue for sure.
So first I started prepping by filling all the nail holes. Look how bright this room is when the sun is coming in. My sister asked me why I wanted to change it and I told her I think it is a hormonal thing!
I just cannot stand this deep golden yellow any longer. My mom loves this color, but she doesn't live here and only sees it for a short time. I also did not like the way it didn't flow with the color of the sitting room across the foyer. When I stood in the dining room and looked over to the sitting room it was clashing badly.
I was going to do this job all by myself and not even involve Mr. Savvy. I wasn't even going to touch the wall below the chair rail. Well, there were a couple of small cracks in the room that needed caulking so he was doing that and then I look and he has scraped off a large area of this wall below the chair rail. We found that we had a leak behind this wall a few months ago when our wood floor was curling up. Mr. Savvy said we must have water coming in and he got outside and cut a hole in the cornice board and found a leak behind this wall and repaired it. So after the wall dried out good the top layer of wall board was just flaking off when he touched it. He repaired it with joint compound and now I have this to paint, too. Thanks hon! I think every paint job I do always ends up being more work than first planned.
So it is taking me longer to finish this job than planned. I am also repainting the trim to freshen it up. It hasn't been repainted in over 15 years and desperately needs it.
Now most of you guessed the right room now guess what color I went with. I think you will be very surprised. Let's see how smart you are again.
Looking forward to your guesses!
Now I must get back to work or it will never be finished.
