To Paint or Not to Paint that Color

I bought a gallon of paint yesterday because I have on my to do list- painting a laundry room. But, this morning I found this kind of neat site that might have been useful before I bought the paint. If you are trying to decide what colors to use in a room BH&G website has a fun way to help http://www.bhg.com/app/coloraroom They have several rooms to choose from and then you can change the colors of items in those rooms. For example--a diningroom. You choose from a color palette the wall color, chairs, tablecloth, anddraperies color etc. That way you can kind of get an idea of whether you would feel comfortable with strong colors in the room or if you lean toward a more neutral color scheme. You can also do the same thing with window treatments. You choose from different kinds of windows or french doors, then choose window treatments. Or, if you are not even thinking of changing any room (is there such a person?) you can waste quite a bit of time having fun! When I get to painting that room I will post about it. Have a good day whether you paint or not today!

I think you have a lovely home. I am sure whatever colour you use, your room will be really nice no matter what!

What a helpful site! I need to paint around here. It seems nine years is long enough to go with the oringinal. I feel like mixing things up a bit.
We would love to have had you join us today for lunch. It was fun to get to know a blogging friend in person.
I meant to say my knee surgery was orthroscopic.. lol.. not laproscopic, though I have had way too many on my lap/stomach also!

I sure pray all goes well for you.
