I RARELY ever get colors right the first time around, but this time - I hit it off the freakin' park!!! Yahoooooo!
Like most colors, yellow is something you can get wrong quite easily. I'm so happy with this one, I can't even tell you. It's a tad darker than the picture above, sort of like when you first cut into a fresh pineapple that's not quite ripe.
And the Patriotic White ceiling - match made in heaven. It has just enough of a tint of grey/blue in it which kind of absorbs the vibrancy of the yellow so you minimize the bouncy/crazy effect that a non-pastel yellow could potentially have . Let's just say Patriotic White is the silent partner, probably does more work than the yellow.
Oh and if you're looking for an edging tool - this one is my fave:
I'm lovin' my sponge brushes - so much easier to control than a brush and makes a perfectly smooth edge (as long as you have a steady hand I guess)!
Today I'm painting the window sills and priming the cabinets so that they'll be ready for paint this weekend. Hopefully I'll have our first room done by the end of the weekend!!!!
