5 Gallons

Guess who took advantage of Sherwin Williams’s 40% off sale last weekend?

You guessed it … We’re about to repaint the whole house. Almost. Master bedroom. Spare room. Living room. Kitchen. Dining Room.

In my unprofessional opinion, Sherwin Williams has the best color palettes of any paint brand. (Plus the Color Visualizer on their website is pretty cool.) We typically use Behr paint because it’s a bit cheaper but great quality. But 40%? That’s a good deal on some good paint.

In case anyone is wondering, it took us less than 30 minutes to decide on the 3 colors for those 5 rooms because we already knew what we wanted. White for the bedroom. Light gray for the spare room. White with a yellow-green accent wall for the living room – kitchen – dining room. After having NO white walls in the house for more than 4 years, we’re ready to go back to the basics.

    Oh I am envious! I agree they have great color choices…do you have a suggestion for light grey/hint of blue? We’re getting ready to paint our son’s room.

    Unfortunately, I tossed all the paint chips that we didn’t need. I just saw this post today on Ohdeedoh. SW Yarmouth Blue looks like a pretty grayish blue option: http://www.ohdeedoh.com/ohdeedoh/my-room/my-room-hunterottawa-ontario-144611 We chose the top gray in the picture called Ellie Gray but it doesn’t have much blue in it. The next one down did but I don’t have the name.

  3. […] yard sale. It was plastic “wood” so I spray painted it blue. ALSO, keep in mind the walls will be light […]
