My House: Guest Room, progress...

It's not finished but there is definitely progress...

After two coats of not one, but TWO different paint colours I'm loving the final colour. Our first coat was Martha Stewart's 'Heavy Goose'. The more we painted the more I felt like we were turning the room into a baby boy's nursery. A lovely and modern nursery, but still it was just a bit too blue for my liking.

Luckily, we ran out of paint (woops) so off to the Home Depot where I picked up a new colour - Martha Stewart's 'Nimbus Cloud' for the second coat. It's nearly identical but more gray than blue, which is exactly what I was going for.

Final Coat, Colour 2:

Colour me happy :) And yes, I realize you are probably scrolling back and forth right now trying to actually spot the difference between those two colours... just trust me on this one, k?

I think the paint swatches show the difference a bit better. What do you think, do you like?

  1. It looks really good - I can't really tell the difference between the colours in these pics but I'm sure it was more noticeable in person.

  4. Roxy - Haha, yes he is!! Luckily we needed to get another can so he didn't care what colour it was.

    p.s. I realize I'm sounding a bit anal, trust me everyone there was way more of a difference in person! Even mike agreed. Haha... Crazy Christine ;)

  8. The difference is definitely noticeable! I think that even though it's grey... the second one makes the room seem a little more cozy than the first! Good choice! :)
