Girl on the Go: Paint the House

Ok, so I am deviating from my Girl on the Go list again. Last week I chose a book I want to read, and this week, well, this week I want to paint our new house. Yes, a new house! A couple of weeks ago we sold our house and bought a new one. We recently finished all the paperwork and it looks like we’ll be moving in about one month.

The house we purchased is larger than our current home, and is in need of paint in several rooms. First of all, the people we bought the house from have young girls, so they painted the rooms with bright pinks and lime green colors. One room even has a blue sky with white clouds painted on the ceiling.

I have spent so much time on pinterest looking at color schemes and trying guess what colors will look nice in each room, but, my efforts are futile. I need to be in the house to get a feel for the colors I want to use in my office, the bedrooms and the living room. So, I am considering a trip to the home decor store as my Girl on the Go activity. Below is one of my favorite color schemes for the office. But, this may change by the time we move colors haiku

Today’s Haiku:

aroma of paint
covers old memories
tenants new home


Have you done any painting recently? What color schemes did you pick?
