What's on your plate this weekend? Having secured help to do some much-needed repairs, I'm mostly going to be getting things ready: taking down decorations, pulling furniture away from the walls, buying supplies, that sort of thing. After some serious indecision regarding paint color, I've decided to go ahead and buy a few trial-size cans to test out before investing in several gallons of what could be the wrong color.
The plan: Dover White, above left, with Sleepy Blue, above right, for accent walls in the bedroom and bathrooms. I don't see how such pretty colors could morph into something awful as soon as they hit the wall, but I've been surprised before.
