"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

deva vu all over again

Have you ever felt like you're living in the Matrix and the damn thing is looping again? Maybe it's just me. Maybe it's just my OCD showing again.

It's been barely six months since I painted my living and dining rooms. After spending months trying to pick the perfect shade of white, in a moment of insanity, I picked a blue/green gray shade. And I loved it. Or I thought I did. Until I didn't anymore.

So I decided to go back to the drawing board, back to the quest for the perfect white, but this time, I decided the perfect white shouldn't really be white at all, but rather a very light, beige-y gray. And it's...well...perfect.

And now, I find myself painting the walls all over again. Though, if you know me, you'll know this is not the first time I've completely changed directions with color. In fact, I repainted the living room in one house so many times I increased the R-factor several times over (or maybe that's a gross exaggeration, but I did paint it a lot.)

So my living and dining rooms will be painted over in the lovely shade of Sea Pearl by Benjamin Moore. And I'd better love it, because painting rooms with ten foot ceilings is for the birds! And trust me, if I thought the chickens would be even half way competent, I'd give them all little brushes and send them up there to finish.   But that's just crazy talk...

Until the next time...I'll be painting.
