It's Wednesday

Im sorry to say that I have nothing to show today. I have cleaned this house, washed clothes and stuff like that. I have got to hit my bedroom, it looks like a cyclone hit in there. I am still rollin' the cabinet thing around in my head. I want to paint it, just need to decide what color. If I could get goin on that it would keep me busy for a few days. I need to paint the inside and out. Its in my hallway that has this wallpaper with yellow and green in it. Very 1970's, but I like it. I will post a picture so y'all can see what Im talkin' about.

Here is the outside with the wallpaper:

Here is the inside. I keep all my office supplies in this, sooo excuse my mess.

So do Y'all have any suggestions for me as far as color??? Im open to anything.

if you are keeping the wallpaper, then how about a mustard or harvest gold color?

I would like for it to stand out against the wallpaper. I thought about black, with mustard on the inside. Then the opposite. I just want for it to stand out. Right now its just kinda there. Ya Know?

Leslie said...

Black or red :) Are you going to distress it a bit? Because I think that makes a difference, too...makes things stand out a bit :)

Okay, I am calling you crazy because you like that wallpaper! LOL I have a thing with wallpaper, I think it looks too busy but it's probably because I had these HUGE flowers and crazy things all over the place when we moved here :)

Happy painting!

Have a great night :)

LOL, Leslie. Yeah I do like it. It kinda fits the house. And when they remodeled for my aunt and uncle, my Papa put it up. So I guess Im attached to it in that way. There's not much left here that my Papa did. Its ok that you call me crazy. I know that. Its the ones who are crazy that think they arent are the ones you have to watch out for..LOL..

Hmmm I think a mustard color would be good to paint the whole thing..but the door would be a good place for like an information station since it holds supplies. Maybe you could also paint the middle with chalkboard paint too (doesn't have to be black paint..they have other colors)... That's where I was going with the chalkboard paint. Just an idea floating in my head...I hope I helped, but with the color of the wallpaper, I like mustard. Can't wait to see the picts!!

Tammy said...

Thank you Shay. I really like that chalkboard idea. Hmmm, might have to give that a try. I wonder what a gold color would like? There is gold in the wallpaper. Im rollin ideas too. I need to decide already.

I vote for warm butternut. And I finally had a chance to mention the award you gave me on my blog. It's been a crazy month.
Blessings to you~
