We painted the dining room. Okay, Paul painted the dining room and I assisted. (He's so great). Anyway, we rolled the paint on and it looked like a beautiful shade of creamy yellow. Then it dried......and its brighter than we anticipated. My camera makes it look even worse - the completed pictures were taken at night.
I swear it looks lighter during the day when the sun streams into the room than it does when we turn on the ceiling light at night. Anyway - see for yourself. We aren't sure what to make of it. When we lived in North Phoenix a lot of homes around us were owned by Spanish people who enjoyed painting them bright colors. So Paul said we could hang up a pinata and a bird cage and it would be just fine! Infact HGTV says we need to embrace color! So maybe I'll add a few more pictures to the wall and some curtains to soften the effect.
