Richard went and picked out four more mint green samples and painted them on the walls on Tuesday afternoon, and it looks like we maybe, possibly might have a winner.
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), Richard had already primed the walls before I got a chance to get a picture of the four new choices. I did want one picture showing FOURTEEN color options on one wall. Just, you know, for the humor of it.
Our four choices in this go-round were:
|Sherwin Williams Fleeting Green|
|Sherwin Williams Topiary Green|
|Behr Spearmint Stick|
|Sherwin Williams Greening|
We liked Topiary Green the best, so Richard painted a big section of one wall with the rest of the paint sample. This way we could see it in a larger section and not compared to the other samples around it. We got a chance to live with it for a week or so to see if we really did like it as a color for the dining room and not just as the best color out of the fourteen options.
I'm really amused that it took us 14 samples to pick the one we really wanted. I should be careful in my amusement/mentioning of it. I felt like we had an unusually high number of colors on the walls when we chose between eight colors for the guest room. And then the next room that we painted (this one) has fourteen choices. I can only hope that this trend doesn't continue. We have, like, eight more rooms to paint.
So, it looks like we have a winner! Hopefully we'll have the walls painted and the trim/picture frame molding painted soon! I can't wait to see how this room looks when it's all said and done.
