Green is the new black

I've mentioned before that I've repainted almost every room in our house more than once (in fact, the bedroom has been painted four times). It's not so much that my tastes change (we've only been in our house from three years) or that I like to paint (because I hate it). I'm just indecisive.

Besides, how are you supposed to know how an entire room is going to look in a particular color from a 2" x 2" chip of the color. I've even purchased sample paint kits to paint a swatch up on the wall . . . it's just hard to tell until the job is done and the paint is dry. And by that time, it's too late. Unless you're me. Then it's never too late . . . you just start over.

Anyway, my experience in choosing multiple paint colors gave me a deep appreciation for this page. I'm still not really that happy with the color of our bedroom so I think it's how I'll choose a new one.

And I'm not even kidding.
