When I bought my house in November 2009, I really wanted to paint every room a different color. My sister had done it and I loved it, so I wanted to do it, too.
Lily's room is pink. The toy room (soon-to-be nursery) is yellow. The living room in a light brown. I'm still struggling on what color I want to paint mine.
I've been thinking about painting the upstairs hall for a while. I picked out the palest shade of green that I could find and still be considered a color other than white or off-white.
After getting to the store to pick out the paint, I decided to go darker. Much darker. The color is called "String Bean" and it is very green.
I looked at light fixtures, but there are so many and they require knowing at least the basics about electrical. Even though I know some things, I'm not going to chance doing any of it while I'm pregnant. Maybe I can get my Dad (or ab-fab BIL) to do the dangerous stuff.
Light fixture, circa 1967.
I'm hoping that with a couple of additions, like bright pictures of flowers and maybe a vase of Gerbera daisies (my fave flower), that the hall will look more complete and less like I've walking a pasture in "What Dreams May Come."
