Have you met my daughter yet? I bring her up from time-to-time. Not often. She prefers to keep her business off the blog.
In fact, neither of my kids are angling for fame on It All Started With Paint. They’d so much prefer to be an internet sensation on Reddit. Or Instagram. To them my blog is so, like, not cool.
Though, if I was pulling in a million pageviews a month I’m pretty sure they’d be singing a different tune …
But back to my daughter. She’s 13 years old. And after a rough start at the beginning of the school year, she’s back on track. Finding herself, if you will. Trying things out. And on. Not just for size. But to see how they fit her emerging personality.
So when I finally succumbed to her many requests for a room redesign, you can be sure she came to the table with plenty of ideas. And opinions. Strong ones. Most of which keep circling back to white …
which we all know is a challenge for this color loving girl!
Though, I did insist that we add a bit of color to the walls. Just a bit. With a light shade of gray …
So we visited our neighborhood Ace Hardware to check out options at their new in-store Paint Studio. It’s pretty cool, actually. There are mood-inspired palettes displayed in unique draws with bright lighting. It reminded me of a high-end cosmetic counter. And of course, there were plenty of paint chips and brochures and color match ideas to look through for inspiration …
not to mention the amazing Paint Studio staffers who were one-upping each other about their perfect paint mixing abilities!
In the end, we narrowed it down to three possible shades of gray from the #1 ranked Clark+Kensington line …
We also picked up some mixable color samples – just $4.99 for a pint – and will try them out on the walls this weekend.
And speaking of this weekend, Ace Hardware is offering an amazing Buy One Get One paint deal …
I better hurry up and decide on a color!
So, what do you think of our color choices? Do you have any recommendations, suggestions, or – like my daughter – strong opinions?
