I have narrowed down my color choices to 5 colors. Is that really considered narrowing down? I have put together a digital color sample photo for my dining room hutch. I also have photos of other rooms I found on various design blogs that have the colors I am thinking about.
This first one I found here. I really like the navy walls, but I think the emerald green chair color would be a great color for the hutch.
Here is another one that I really like. I think the yellow is a fun pop of color, but I am not sure that it would match our wall color:
And of course, I have to consider a turquoise one, but I am sure it won’t be the final choice. I need to stray away from turquoise for once. Plus, the walls are a deep turquoise. But is sure looks good here:
And here is the digital color sampling I did in Photoshop:
I also thought about doing it a coral color. I painted a side table Pittsburgh Paint’s Wet Coral and it was a very nice color. So, the choices are emerald green, yellow, coral, navy, and bright turquoise.
I finally have a minute to start getting ready for Halloween. My oldest is excited about decorating so I decided to make a sign for our front door. I saw one similar somewhere and thought I would recreate it.
I am printing it on cardstock and then mounting it to an 8×10 canvas and then I will hang it on our front door. Feel free to print the sign for yourself. I have 2 little girl monsters so that’s why I did the monsters pink. You can easily change out the color of the monsters in Photoshop or another editing program.

I had some paint left from previous projects and decided to try them out on our future, new, used front door. We had to end up scavenging a new front door from our rental storage, because our current one ended … Continue reading →
The title of this post is a little misleading, because I did not pressure wash our house myself. I thought about it, checked out the price of renting or buying a pressure washer and then I got a quote from a … Continue reading →
I realized that I had never shown a picture of the chest of drawers that I painted for the nursery after I put it in place. Every time I open the closet in the nursery it makes me happy to see this: … Continue reading →
