New Year's Resolution: Never Pick a Paint Color By Myself Again

I feel like I'm the only person in blogworld that hasn't done a 2009 re-cap or some kind of New Year's post.  It would be kind of ridiculous to do a 2009 recap considering that I began blogging in the middle of November ("hey remember that time I made a wreath?") and I'm not usually one to make resolutions, but here goes....I will never pick a paint color by myself again.  I chose a paint color for my nursery, painted two coats, and now I don't like it.  Choosing paint is pretty petty and usually wouldn't merit a resolution, but this is the second time I've done this.  Last December I picked a paint color for our first floor, painted, then changed my mind.  Why is choosing paint so hard?  My nursery looks like I smeared Wrigley's Doublemint all over the walls.  I would post a picture, but none that I've taken can do the color justice so I'll leave you with this: 


  1. Oh, Aaron! Everybody's been there. And then they get the sample pots. : ) It will save you a lot of time to paint a nice size square on the wall, or something you can prop up against the wall, to get a better idea of the color. Have you seen any colors you like on other people's blogs? I'm sure anyone you asked would be happy to share the color. Don't be so hard on yourself.

  2. ula la, it's very "minty"! :0
    Love your ideas, especially the one for the pillows!

  3. Oh no! Sorry the paint didn't come out the way you wanted.

    If you need any suggestions let me know I would be happy to help.

    Just looking at your post below it looks like the nursery is going to be so cute. Love the owls you made!

  4. I wish you would have posted a pic of the room. I did that in my last family room and lived with it for seven years!

  5. oh i can soooo relate!! my baby is due next month and i am on paint try number FIVE!!
