You ask, "Is it deja vu?" And I reply, "No, I've just been discontented." Now I am officially contented. After painting the guest bedroom first one time and then again, I have returned yet again to put my discontent to rest. After searching for what appears to be over a year, I believe I have finally found the correct shade of green that I absolutely love. If you hadn't already guessed, it's called Contented (Sherwin Williams).


Thom proclaims that he liked the last iteration but I am clearly the more picky one in the pair. The other green was just too -- something. Too bright, perhaps. It was certainly just "too" for my taste. It just didn't seem to go with the rest of our palette in the house, which is much more muted and earthy. This color is finally the one. I think I am officially done painting the interior of our house! Hip hip hooray!

It's nice to be back at the home improvement game. I still have big hopes for the bathrooms getting done but the last of my summer grant money may need to be used for holiday plane tickets. I think the next semi-big project will be to remove the paint from the front porch decking and stairs and repaint -- perhaps removing the screening while I'm at it. We'll see. At any rate, at least I can finally go into the guest room and not say "ick" any longer.

We used that color in one of the rooms or our house. Great choice! Green is really tough to choose and often takes several attempts.
