Can you believe twelve years of procrastination? Yikes, I'm blushing as I type! I even spelled out the number instead of using the numeral in hopes that it would not emphasize such a long period of time. I confess it has taken me over a decade~ now that really sounds like forever~ to finish a paint project in a bedroom in our home.
I kept telling myself that "really, it looks fine the way it is...such a slight shade in color will not make that much difference, so why make the extra effort?" I have painted walls and ceilings in our house too many times to count. I like to change colors. I like to experiment with paint. But for some reason, the area below the chair rail in one bedroom has been neglected over the years. The area above the chair rail has worn several different hues. But the bottom section of the walls have forever been white.
In the photo above, you can see the white paint below the chair rail. If you look closely, the fabric on the chair had an oh-so-subtle off-white background. The difference between the wall and the chair was not stark, but just off enough to keep hearing that little voice saying "paint me off-white." Night lighting made the contrast show up even more.
I decided to use Valspar Cream in My Coffee. To be honest, I had almost 3/4 of a gallon left over from painting another room. (I love shopping my paint supply on-hand. The price is always right!) If you look closely in this next photo, you can see where I have painted the wall on the left side of the door, but not the right yet.
Do you have a double-digit procrastination paint project?
