Turquoise Tint

Angry Husband is used to my random requests after all of our years together. He shouldn’t be surprised at my latest request.

A few days ago, he asked me if I had any projects for him, as he was on a week of vacation. I may have muttered under my breath, “paint our bedroom”. I have been mentally planning our bedroom re-do in my head for quite some time. This is how I roll. I’m a planner. So when he continued with the conversation and asked, “what color”, I firmly stated “TURQUOISE”.  He went with my suggestion and picked out the paint color cards at the store for me.  I can only imagine the things he was thinking when he was getting the paint color cards for me.  But that is all behind us now.

I took some pictures of our bedroom on Tuesday night, as my “before” pictures.  If you look at the picture, it appears organized and put together.  But it is sooo BLAH!!! I’m bored with the sage green neutral color and the palm trees/tropical theme. I’m yearning for bright vivid color.
