Ok, so I started week two of the ORC with high hopes. You can check out my Week One post here and the great link up party here, btw.
First, I moved everything out of the shed and onto the mangy mess I call a lawn, and I cleaned the interior of the shed from top to bottom.
Then, I added some 4x4 studs to create more shallow shelves for displaying small items.
Everything was going to plan until I picked a color and started painting.
You see, no one I've consulted seems to like this color, including me. This was a tough realization after I'd put in two days of painting (it is super slow going because it all has to be done with a brush).
My two go-to people for color consult came up with these observations: "It looks really Holly Hobby Mom" (yes, my son has a preternatural knack for color -since he was like four) and "It looks really Ralph Laureny" -like in a bad way. I kind of knew it was wrong right from the start but as the saying goes -denial is a river in Africa.
I was so bummed that I took the day off today to contemplate a new color....Black, well some sort of blackish thing.
I like this black wall, although it does look like it has a little purple (which I don't want) in it. Image from Abigail Ahern's Pinterest.
This is good too but is more gray than black and has bluish tones...tricky.
Basically I need to dump some cash into some sample quarts and make a more informed decision than my last one.
Any thoughts? Black, gray or neither?
