I Hate Paint



How can anyone pick a paint color off of a 2 square inch piece of paper? I still have yet to see a room turn out the way I had pictured it in my mind. Even if it's a paint color I had seen in someone else's house, it never looks the same when it's in my own. For Christmas I told Kylie that we could re-decorate her room. After spending hours at Home Depot comparing paint chips, we finally picked one. On the way home I almost started crying as it looked brown instead of green in the sunlight. As we started painting it, I would love it one second and absolutely hate it the next. Now that it's done, it changes colors throughout the day. I love the way it looks in this picture, but if you look at it between the hours of 10-4pm then it ranges anywhere from too yellow or too brown or too puke. There's gotta be a better way.

I think it looks great! Does Kylie like it? I love that you still have her little dresses hanging up. You do such a great job decorating. You'll definitely have to help me with our new house:)

I think it looks great but I hear you with the paint thing. I have such a hard time. I did find the perfect colors for Courtney's room and the nursery though. I will be posting pics of them soon.

I agree with Chelsea, green is a hard one, there are SO many variations of it! I think it looks quite nice though, I bet Kylie agrees!

It looks great! I know what you mean about greens - I still don't like the color I chose for Lauren's room, but I'm too afraid of what I will choose next ... This looks like a great green - I might have to camp out and see if it will go in Lauren's room, too.

Do those dresses mean anything special? Are they just some old faves? I think they are so cute.
Would you like to hang out in SLC when we get our house? I am in total need of help decorating!!!

I love it! If it bothers you too much during the day, go buy one of those inexpensive roll-up black out drapes... the natural light won't affect the color~ What color are the light bulbs in her fixtures? That makes a huge impact too!
