I have been EXTREME NESTING this whole pandemic, as you might have been able to tell from 1. Cooper's room. 2. The baby's room. 3. Dorothy's room. 4. Repainting the whole GD basement.
Well, friends, I am happy to report that we NO LONGER HAVE YELLOW WALLS because Ben is the best!
Seriously, he works SO HARD at work, and then he spends his weekends working like crazy around the house in a way that is truly extra. He also happens to be an excellent painter, so he never wants to hire people to come do it for us, even though I usually do (although, of course, I did NOT during this pandemic.
In the end, we went with Sherwin Williams Grayish, the same color in the basement. We picked this color from the interwebs, and even though we got a sample can and actually painted like 100 square feet with it, we were still really unprepared for how BLUE/LAVENDER it in on the upstairs walls. I wish it were named grayish (blue) because we might have gone with something warmer. But, we did not, and I fully love it because you know what? IT IS NOT YELLOW.
Also, we got a paint that is both primer AND washable flat paint, basically a miracle formula, and it covered all the insane colors we painted over on this journey IN ONE COAT. Highly recommend.
Here are a millions pictures of the SAME! DAMN! THING!
Ben LOVED that I used my time early on Saturday morning to make the kids pancakes, clean up the pancakes, and then STYLE BOTH BOOKSHELVES while he taped and painted the entire front hallway and entry.
