I’ve had this vision in my head of how I want my house to look, but I haven’t been able to pinpoint the exact color that would convey it. It has literally taken me two plus years to decide on it because I hate painting walls that much, so I refuse to re-do it if it didn’t turn out right. I love to paint furniture…but HATE walls and ceilings. It doesn’t help that at this point in time I’m still too cheap to pay someone else to do it, so I knew I had to make the right decision from the start.
It goes on quite blue, but grays as it dries. In full daylight it looks a bit more blue,
and then when it’s a little darker in the room it looks more gray.
We decided to go with a semi-gloss because not only is semi-gloss easier to clean without the paint rubbing off, but it looks much cleaner much longer since body oil leaves walls with a greasy looking sheen…I know that sounds so gross, but kids just love dragging their dirty (naturally greasy) hands across walls and I wanted to hide as much of that as possible. ~Sarah
