I'm down to choosing paint color
We're in the middle of demo of our old kitchen - the electrician will start next Monday, so the kitchen will be empty by then. At last! I feel comfortable with all the decisions I've made up to this point - we even decided on drawer pulls!
Now I'm stuck on color. I want to paint the walls and ceiling before the new cabinets go in. The kitchen and dining room are open, so the new color will go on the wall that extends from one to the other, and around the kitchen.
I used Cambria's color match to help me choose a wall color (though I picked out a few dozen paint chips myself first, and happened to narrow down to one of these - BM Putnam Ivory). I bought a pint and painted a few areas around the kitchen. In most walls, I love it - but on one wall, it shows distinctly gray! No matter what the light - sunshine, overcast, dining room lights on - still gray. I suspect that I'll end up continuing this color around the rest of the dining room into the living room (they are open to each other), but I really don't want gray. Arrgh! Just when I thought I had it figured out!
I'm going to pick up a sample of BM Elephant Tusk this afternoon, to see if I like that better (it reads slightly green to me).
