New carpet has been installed in the Murder Room, which is good as we needed the psychological boost of seeing a project completed. I still need to touch up the trim and paint the doors, but it no longer can be used in a court of law as justification of homicide. Here, have some pictures…
I went with a light color on the walls as our bedroom set is a dark expresso wood. The color was supposed to be Behr’s “Chocolate Froth” but the gallon tint came out a different color from the chip. No problem! Paint companies recently introduced small cans of paint as testers, so you can sample the color on your wall before committing to the color. I love these paint testers – I’m a mad scientist of color with paint testers. I went back to Home Depot and picked up a tester sample of a dark walnut brown, added it to the Froth, and worked with it until the color had some depth.
Oh, and just for fun? Here’s our master bedroom closet. There’s no way we were going to touch that wallpaper… it needs to be preserved for posterity, even if posterity wants nothing to do with it. This is for posterity’s own good.
