But when we got in there, it was a lot more vivid than I had thought.
So, we went with this color, Sweet Blue.
I really had intended to get a color like the original one but after we looked through hundreds of colors, the Sweet Blue just caught my attention. Now, when you look at IT and the color on the ceiling....it doesn't look the same, either....but after it dries, it's not quite as vibrant. I was going for a softer blue look.
It still looks rather bright, but I assure you....it's softer when it dries. I really like it!
I don't know why the colors don't look the same as the samples, it really makes it harder to choose a color.
David installed a new light fixture on the ceiling replacing the old one that only had one light bulb in it. We had originally gone in the store thinking we'd get one with two light bulbs and the salesperson suggested we try the LED one. She said they last up to 30 years and are a lot brighter. So, even though it was more expensive than we had planned....we decided to go ahead and try it.
After it was in, we turned it on and we couldn't believe how much light it put out. Now I don't have to feel as though I am in a dungeon. I'll still need some lighting over my desk area but that's down the road.
Now, to think about WHAT will come back into the room and what won't!!! We decided to just go ahead and make it our office/craft room like we had before and figured if I don't bring in a lot of 'stuff', it won't feel so crowded.
Then, after this project is finished....I get to start on the guest room!!!
More updates coming!!
