Paint Color Nightmare

So I totally went into Home Depot indecisive because of the dumb paint that got stolen... OH wait... I haven't told that story yet.

So here it is. Men who work on hard wood flooring come and put wood on floor. Man goes up stairs, looks at paint, and takes his favorite. I come back to the house after work, and 5 days later I go to paint and paint is gone. Traces of Footprints from the sheddings of flooring lead up stairs where paint had been stored. Paint gone. Thanks Mr. Contractor.

Alright. So then I have another chance to find the right color. I decided to rely on Behr paints color complement or... BAD IDEA. I have a yellow kitchen and a gray office and it gives me a coral orange. It looked beautiful... see below:

So then, I go home and decide to start painting and I went "GASP.. UGH... I CAN'T DO THIS!!" I start wigging out and can't believe that this is really the color of my living room.

Then I take a picture and post it on Facebook to get reactions and I send it to my sister Becky and my mom, who both texted me back saying... "UGLY"... no joke, exact word from each of them.

So then I let it dry and for two days, every time I come down the steps, I say "ugh... I hate you!"

So, tonight I decided to do something about it. I went into home depot and spent a good hour in the paint section. I brought my palettes, swatches, shades and more and found new ones! I finally decided on one! You gotta check it out.

Go to the Behr website and look up these three colors! These are the three colors in the rooms on the first floor... it is going to be stunning!!

Gentle Rain, River Valley, and Sunkissed Yellow (which I have in the kitchen).

They look SO good together!

SO my nightmare has ended as I no longer wait up saying... "ugh... I hate you!"
Now its contentment and serenity! It will be so nice once there are some great pieces of art hanging on those beautiful walls!!

I started painting the new color by Behr, River Valley, and I am in love with it. I normally tell my boyfriend that I am in love with him, and I am really in love with this new color! It's hard to tell, I need to take a picture during the day, not at night... but I think it will look great in the morning!!

Here is the sneak peek... hard to tell... but its getting better!
