Lazy Woman's Color Board

I've been looking for inspiration for colors to paint my walls. I like every paint color I see on other blogs...and...that's my problem!

Then, we ordered a new mattress/box springs set.

*We moved everything out of the hall and dining room (you're probably saying "huh?" right now) and that furniture ended up, in a mix, in the great room.

It was 6 a.m. on Saturday morning when we started clearing the hall and dining room out.

We were done by 7:45 am.

The delivery guy called at 8:00 a.m. to tell us they would NOT be delivering that week!

"...parts were not available, yada yada yada..."

Crashing into a chair, more than a little agitated, I noticed that the colors of blue, black, creamy white, and brown were really appealing to me.

"I think I found my colors." I said to Wild Bill.

He didn't actually say anything in reply, but I'm totally sure he was silent because he was so thrilled for me at that moment!

We had moved the old frame/box springs and all to the dining room* to store temporarily to make way for the new stuff.


  1. You crack me up!!! Ok, they couldn't deliver the goods but look at what came out of that. You now know your color scheme! Woohooo!

  2. I'm glad a frustrating situation turned into inspiration!

  3. I love the difference that painting a room can make . . . and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've done.
    Have a great week, Connie :)
