Nerves

Tomorrow we are painting and I am nervous. I have been thinking about doing this for a year and I think it is going to be great. But what if it is a disaster?



When we built this house 8 years ago, I chose the perfect grey. It is warm, a bit moody, and looks good in every light. I have loved the colour and still do (hence the hesitation) but the walls have seen a lot of life and could use a little love, so if we are going to the work and expense of painting it seems like a good time to make a change. Plus, aside from the 8 years here, the colour is not much different than the grey I used in the house before this (5 years). Maybe time .... but this is an open concept house so it is all or nothing. 


Wish me luck! .... 'cuz if it is a disaster, I am going to have to pretend it's great - or find another husband ;)

It's going to be awesome. You haven't made a bad design decision yet - I have a hunch this is going to be super cool.

I agree with Jonathon,but you didn't include the new colour. Does he have inside information?

i agree with Jonathon. I image it will be a little nerve racking since it looks so good already, you would hate to compromise that. But i am looking forward to seeing the change.

I can only echo the comments already made - you KNOW design Cheri. Have faith in yourself; we all do!
