Debbie's Dilemma


I decided to take my own advice and paint my bathroom. The way the master bath is situated, It could be any color (just about) and be wonderful. So off to the paint store I go.... ooh townhouse tan is pretty, oh and what about gold. Gold would work. The rest of the house has gold, maybe that's overdoing the gold thing a bit. Green would be nice... hmm. Why is it I can help everyone else pick paint colors for their projects with no problem, but I am having trouble picking my own color? Maybe it is because I know that this is one of those projects that leads to more and more. For example, "since we are painting maybe we should take out the 13 yr old vinyl (still beautiful by the way), and if we are redoing the floor, how about the molding? If we do all that than maybe we should tile around the tub kit" and the list goes on. I started out just wanting to paint, now if I paint, what ever color I end up choosing will have to match everything else that I now think I need to do. Sheesh! Perhaps I should just go with a color and save the rest for a rainy day. No wonder my clients seem so confused.

  3. Wait... this reminds me of something... oh, yes, your daughter trying to plan what colors to paint the rooms in her house. :) I think it's genetic.

    (I personally always choose my colors by arguing about it with Dave until one of us gives up. Which is probably why walking through my house is like being tested for color blindness). Actually, you should probably come and tell me what colors I should actually have in here. Except then I'd have to paint...

  6. I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Hmmmm, colors....I love the gold idea and you could do a lot with that. And you could do like cinnamon-colored towels with the gold. Hey, I think I like that. Plus, it's light and I like bathrooms that are light in color. Well, I only have two, it's not like a live in a mansion but dark and small feel crowded sometimes - listen to me...YOU'RE the decorator!! Pleeeeease show us pictures when you're finished!!
