Yesterday the children and I painted three walls of my bedroom a color called Vanilla Steam. In the subdued bedroom light last night, I wouldn't have known the walls were painted except that they look clean. It's the color of coffee with way too much milk to even be called cafe au lait. But you can see a difference against the white baseboard.
Today they kids have gone off on their mountain biking adventure and I'm left to paint the fourth wall - a blue color called prosaically Office Blue.
We even went out last night and bought blue jeans and bras for the returning to college girl. Then stopped by Lowe's and bought new floor registers and new switch plates. Plans are to finally do the headboard this week and maybe actually hang stuff on the walls. That could be interesting.
