hawthorne yellow

































i'm on a kick where i think about DIY projects a lot. it's probably not helping that i keep seeing on friend's blogs or at my neighbors apt. all the cute things you can do! since i didn't get any hours this week at work on Tues. i took on a different project. i tackled painting the dining room. since we don't have an Ace with paint around here (see previous post for frustration!) and they are the only ones that have the Pottery Barn colors, i took the paint chip to Home Depot and they color matched it perfectly. gotta love technology. plus, i got Behr paint- which turned out to be awesome, thick paint that didn't cause dripping. you wouldn't know it if you saw the paint job though! why? well i guess the people that have painted this apt. over the years didn't care too much about drips because they are everywhere. Oh and did i mention the bumpy walls? i think if you look closely in the pictures you can see the bumpiness that is occurring behind the buffet. just for the record, rollers don't go over bumps very smoothly!

at any rate, i think it makes the room look SO much better and makes our apt. seem much more like home. i love it and i think it goes well with the green in the kitchen. now the only thing is to decide whether or not to paint the hallway yellow with the extra??

  1. It's so cute! I don't think I would paint the hallway -- it will "pop" more if it's just one room. But I totally love it! :)
