Luckily we didn't need to repaint every room in the house when we first moved in. The walls were just like new after dousing them with TSP. We were babes in beige-land...except for the fireplace wall.
When we painted the sample square of Magnet Dapple on the wall, we could tell people were dumbfounded with the color; given they often gave a long pause before commenting on the it. We brushed off the raised eyebrow reaction and went all in.
Other parts of house were also bitten by the dapple color...more on them on a later post.
Back to our recent swatch hunt for the family room. We were looking for a pale white/gray hue and a few all gray shades. We each nabbed a hand full and went home to compare.
We settled on sampling 3 colors.
1: Subtle Touch
When we propped open the first sample we thought Subtle Touch was too white. But after two coats of paint and some dry time, we finally saw the "subtle" gray in it.
I'm hoping I can pry Chris away from his current PS3 love affair and convince him to another Home Depot trip this weekend. Wish me luck!
Sorry for the boring post; I guess you might say it was a little like watching paint...never mind.
