Kristen, over at Loving Our Simple Life has requested help with paint colors (which I stink at) and pictures of the rooms we have painted. BTW, I did that graphic…what do you think?

When we moved in last summer, we knew immediately we had to paint the kitchen and the two non-master bedrooms upstairs. Well, we wanted to paint ours, too, but that is a task for a professional (it as well as our living room are mauve…yuck)!

Here’s the color of the kitchen when we bought the house. It was a yucky sea foam green.

And now a nice green…although I’m not entirely sure the color matches our new counter tops.

#1’s room was a pastel purple, which we are not. So we used a bright green color…it’s hard to see the true color here, though:

We also painted the guest room a robin’s egg blue color (sort of Tiffany’s blue) and it looks fabulous, but apparently, I don’t have a picture!
