Who am I kidding?

Or should that be 'whom am I kidding?'


Yesterday, I said I'd wait until the floor goes in to decide what I'd do with the closet doors. Today, I realized that I will not make a better decision then as I can now.

I mean, really, I'm not much of a decorator. Having the floor in will not inspire me to become incredibly creative in home decor.

So today, on went a coat of primer and a coat of some leftover pale green paint I had from painting some shelves I built a couple of years ago. Tomorrow, the 2nd coat. Then I'm done with it. Then I can paint the walls (while). Then, MOVE ON.

FYI, the reason you wait until you get your new floors before painting is to ensure that the color you choose will balance with the amount of light (or lack of it) that reflects off of the floor. Also, you want to make sure that the color works with the color of your flooring (dark vs light, etc.).

Just remember (like your other remodel), a whole room of flooring looks a lot different from the sample.

Just my humble opinion--(dr)russ

Finished is beautiful.

Dr. Russ, you're assuming that after the floor goes in, I'll be ABLE to make a BETTER decision about balancing colors, light, etc.

But this would be me going at it -- spend days at the paint shops, bring home about 50 paint chips (each about 2"x2"). Spend days gazing at said paint chips, and at the end, choose WHITE.

Right now, my studio is pretty much out of commission until this is all finished. So I'm on the same wavelength as M5K, finished is good. Not sure about beautiful, but definitely good.

That's OK. That's just the Design Star in me.
