The Paint Parade

Deep breaths are in order.
Mission accomplished

Besides the staircase and a few minor touch ups, we're good to go!

Without all the things that make room a room,
it's difficult to get a true picture of how the room will evolve.
Trust me, I've second guessed some of my color choices. 
I caution other paint fanatics to avoid panicking their choice
 before furniture and accessories are in the room.

I should have waited until the morning to snap pictures as the rooms are reading a bit dark this late afternoon.  I couldn't help myself since I've been promising to add photos to the blog for sometime now.

I consider this a darker color. Darker colors can be scary
We took a leap of faith with the swatch alone and we ended up being very satisfied!

In order for the paint color to be photographed well,
I had to awkwardly angle the camera.
Hopefully you can see the properties of the color.  A gray with a blue undertone.

I forgot to snap a of picture of the master bedroom.  I'm on it!

Scariest project to date!  White shelves are still drying.

My head continues to spin and I can't help but fixate on the color wheel.

Rob reminds me that it's no longer necessary.
I reply...
There's always the exterior.
