Two months after moving in Scott and I finally decided on a color to paint one room in the new house! Although at first it was an epic fail. We took a trip to Home Depot to pick up samples, that took all of five minutes. Probably our first mistake...not taking our paint sample selection more seriously.

We knew we wanted to go with a lighter shade of grey. Coincidentally grey is the most complicated color to ever exist. Every grey ends up have a shade of blue, green, or purple in it. Scott and I learned this the hard way. As in buying paint by the gallon painting and painting an entire wall what ended up being a pretty periwinkle. FAIL! Needless to say we were back at Home Depot the next day to buy a sample that we ended up loving! Moral of the story spending $8 on the sample is not overrated.

This weekend we will be tackling the dining area. May the gods of patience be shining on us because we are planning to use a large wall stencil. I'm sure one, if not both of us, will be in tears at some point this weekend. More photos to come!

Paint #1 - Behr Manhattan Mist
Apparently the mist over Manhattan is a purple one!
