A pink weekend!

It is time to paint the office/sewing room!

I tried 3 pinks. I want a 'barely pink' but I still want it to be pink. I don't want baby pink and I don't want 'pepto' pink. It makes sense in my head. Anyway - the bottom sample was the first one I tried. Looks too much like the beige that is already on the wall so I headed back to Lowe's for more samples. The top one is too pink so I'm going for the middle one. I've already taken the sample jars to the garage so I can't tell you what the top and bottom colors are, but the one I'm going with is Chalk Pink.

Here it is on the opposite wall, next to the curtains. I didn't even try the first one on this wall and I knew as soon as the top one hit the wall it was wrong. On the one hand, it is a good thing that there are so many colors/shades of colors to choose from, but it also makes it really hard! I could have gone back and got more samples but I decided to go with the Chalk Pink. The mister thinks it is going to be too pink. We will see. I'm thinking about using the same pink in the bathroom up here, I'll finish this room before I make that decision.

I'm off to finish moving furniture and filling nail holes.

Have a great weekend!
