Paint problem solved

I am happy to share I have my new paint , I couldn't wait , my Mom is house/dog sitting and I can not bear the thought of an outsider (her friends) seeing my family room in its current state , so it will not be able to wait, I will tackle that tonight , look how nice a neutral , almost a white , bone I would say , my hubby hates it , so I think I am right on track then. Hey I tried the strong blue because he thought it was a great idea but I just can't live with it , he didn't like the dark brown bedroom idea and now loves it , I am sure I am on the right path here.
The colour is Antarctic Ice Glidden , which is almost identical to Peony by Ralph Lauren, by pure co-incidence,wink! isn't that too funny.

Pretty color. Very calming. Do you feel better now? It's funny how the wrong color can just mess us up.

Im so happy to see you went this with no-color color scheme. Its a perfect canvas for all of your amazing accents.

Looks very nice with the white trim. Your husband sounds a lot like mine. Have fun painting!

Great color!! I know how that is living with a color you don't like! My bedroom needs to be changed, but since my husband works third shift and sleeps during the day, it's super hard to find the time. Ahhh, some day:)

Wow, you are fast girl! I would have a terrible time motivating myself to repaint after the first job was botched. Way to go!!

I love how you said about your hubby hating it and then you knew you were right on track! Thats great - my hubby is the same way...he picks out off the wall colors/things and I obviously almost always disagree and then we end up getting what I want (even though he doesn't like it). But in the end, he always LOVE the outcome. Guys are so funny!

I had a good laugh about your comments about your hubby. My husband and are exactly the same way. If he says he likes it, then that is a "red flag" for me!! We are finishing up painting our kitchen and he was very reluctant about painting the golden oak. He has finally agreed that it looks waaaay better now that htey are painted. Guys are so funny, aren't they???
