I want to paint my walls. All my walls. Right now everything is Glidden Antique White. Walls, trim, ceiling, everything! It is a nice neutral white. The biggest problem is that it was all applied very poorly. The homeowner before me sprayed all the walls and was very light handed with the spray. His wife did the trim and she was very stingy with how much paint she put on the brush! I have put this off as long as I can.
So - my first dilemma. What color?! My living room and dining room are connected so that is the biggest space on the first floor. I decided that I want something in the beige family. (Oh, how I would love the trendy grey but I will save that for the bathroom when I finally paint it. This paint job will be a one time thing for me.) Once I decided on the idea of beige - what beige?
Some beige colors lean toward green, some to orange, some to grey. Then there is the whole issue of light. Most colors look very different as the lighting in the room changes. What happens if I love it in the morning light and hate it in the late afternoon light? What if I paint the room, put all my furniture back into place and hate the color all together?
Maybe I should just get more Antique White and call it a day...
