I need an intervention!

The first step is admitting you need help, right?

2 months or so ago my husband finally gave me the green light to redecorate our bedroom.  I had been dreaming about this day for 6 years! You see, we have really ugly wallpaper up there, really ugly.  And blue carpet.  Yes, blue.

So, what happens when I get the green light? I immediately buy new pillow shams, which I am now regretting.  Then I ordered some fabric swatches.  Which I love.  Last week when my Mom was here, she helped me pick out a color (Sharkey Gray by Martha) to match my choices.

Then I hung them on the wall and started to worry that it was going to be too dark up there. You see, we live in a bungalow, so not much natural light since we only have 2 windows on each side of the room and no windows on the other 2 walls.

So, back to Home Depot I went.  This is what I came home with:

Not pictured are the other 50 chips I have accumulated over the past months.

So, last night Rob sat down with me and we chose Toasted Cashew by Behr.  So, there you have it. Our room will be Toasted Cashew...maybe.


  1. i'm going to pick up some paint samples today for our new house!!!! the choices are endless...soooooo much you could do!

  2. It's so overwhelming! I think because I've made some painting mistakes before I'm freaking out a little more than usual. LOL

    What colors are you thinking??? I hope you are going to blog about all of it. Are you keeping Olivia's room the same or changing it up?
