Paint colors - take 2,802

I think we have made a decision on our paint colors, for the downstairs anyway. My other highlight is purchasing the amazing product called Walwik - reusable fabric cloths that remove up to 7 layers of wallpaper in one, fell swoop! I can't wait to try it out!

Here's the plan - check out the colors on the Color Visualizer at sherwin-williams.com:

Kitchen - take down wallpaper and put up Sherwin Williams 7679 - Golden Gate
Dining Room - paint SW 7731 - San Antonio Sage
Living Room - paint SW 7715 - Pottery Urn
Hallway - take down wallpaper and put up SW 7538 - Tamarind or SW 7717 - Liognier Tan

Considerations for upstairs bedrooms:
SW 7519 - Mexican Sand
SW 7639 - Ethereal Mood
SW 7748 - Green Earth

We need to also think about bathrooms too... blue maybe?

I spent a lot of time trying to narrow down the type of paint, much less the paint colors. Surprisingly, not all brands carry the no VOC paint yet. Sherwin Williams is the only place around Bangor that has it so we're going that way.

We'll have the painting done next weekend, hopefully - the floor refinishing guy comes a few days later! Woo hoo!
