Bring on the SUNSHINE YELLOW!!!!

This is the latest colors to show. One wall in the living room we painted BRIGHT yellow and continued it up the stairs into the upstairs foyer area. The blue is in the closet and ceiling of the grandchildrens room. We have pink, sherbert and green left to do in there. After that, all I have left to decide on is what color paint to put in the bathroom. So far my bathroom has boggled me for some reason. I think I'm going to go with another turquoise in there (different from the laundry room). Well, this is all I got for you today. Ya'll have a good one till the next time I write and LOVE THY EARTH!

Yes I do...I LOVE my lime green paint. The green is almost impossible to get a perfect picture of the actual color, but you should be able to get a decent idea how it looks. We painted both side walls of the dining area and ran it right on into the living area, making 3 walls of the living room also lime green. The 4th living room wall is going to be a very bright yellow and continue up the steps and into the upstairs foyer...including the ceiling. I'll get you a pic of it soon.
Wondering what the 2 doors are? Well, the left hand door opens out and inside is a coat closet (in the very back of it is the hot water heater). The right hand door that opens in with a window in it is...wait for it...THE BATHROOM!!! Yes, our bathroom door has a Fear not, we are either going to put in frosted glass (not our first choice cause we like the old wavy glass thats in there) OR it will get a very well fitted and lined curtain. No matter what we decide, one thing is absolutely for sure...we want to paint "OFFICE" on the outside of the window. After all, it is the room you do your "business" in, hehehe.
Till I post again.....PEACE OUT!!!

Get out your sunglasses...PAINT TIME!!!!

Hope you LOVE color, cause I sure do. The photo with the window in it is actually more the true color. The one with Richard painting is WAY off the mark. We are having so much fun picking out our colors. Well, I am!! Richard loves all the colors and pretty much chose the one for the kitchen (I gave him a few to pick from, lol), but he can pick things out fast...which means he does start getting impatient a bit when I change my mind at least a half dozen time...LOL. I just want them perfect. I have had a LOT of homes over the years and have always went with colors that were within the "normal" range...but, I intend to never move again and I've decided I want to do something happy, cheery, and TOTALLY DIFFERENT to anything I've ever done before.
The turquoise color is the laundry/mud room, which obviously is just off the kitchen. I LOVE this color. I'm going to have fun decorating in there with my antique washboards and such. So, we also painted the master bedroom, but I could not get a single picture with the paint looking anywhere near the actual color, so sorry you can't see it. It looks like a million of those little bright green tree frogs from the Amazon got in a fight in there. Its a nice bright , yet sorta soft green.
Sorry it took me so long to update but I'll be back again really soon this time because sometime this week you will be seeing LIME GREEN going up on the walls in the living room.

Till I write again...Love thy Earth!!!
