I think Mr OL might just be beginning to wish I was training for Ironman again. I do “terrible” things when I have too much time on my hands – like paint the bedroom! And it looks hideous.
I am going to have to go and buy some new paint today and paint over it. Not even I can stand it and it was my idea! What the heck was I thinking? Well, actually I do still think it is a good idea, but the colour on the wall was not the colour in my head. And in my defense it is only one wall, and a small one at that.
After watching too much BBC Lifestyle I got it into my head that our bedroom needed a “feature wall” and they keep saying not to be afraid of colour. So when Mr OL asked me if I wanted to join him at Builder’s Warehouse yesterday I jumped at the chance. Armed with a paint swatch and an idea I headed straight for the paints.
Lets just say, it looked better on the swatch than it does on my wall. Here is a picture, I think it looks like the colour of the bottom of an old fashioned swimming pool. Not quite what I want on my wall. I am now thinking a nice deep chocolate brown might be a lot better……
Maybe just with a few turquoise swirls – kind of art deco style……….
