Paint Party!!



It's a lovely PAINT PARTY!!

Melissa over at 320 *Sycamore is having a really great little party this week. She decided to get together with a bunch of paintin' fools like me and show off our fav COLORS of all time. I'll admit I'm a bit paint shy. I don't think of myself as too bold with my colors. But here are a few my very fav ones in the house:

The spare bedroom just got done so there isn't much to show you. This is Valspar Violet Evening. The plan is complete the room in black, silver and chartreuse accents. It's still a plan in the works...


Our kitchen in Valspar Churchill Hotel Olive. I absolutely LOVE this color! The red just really pops against the green and it goes with everything!




Behr's Cranberry Zing. It's bold. It's amazing. It was my first paint job in the house. Take note friends....lay down some primer when doing red. This is 5 COATS of paint!!! I'll never forget that weekend as long as I live!!

Head on over to Melissa's for more wonderful ideas in fantastic colors. Color yourself WILD!!

Looks like a gorgeous red color! Red is such a hard color to find and to paint but you did it! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sharon,
I dropped in from the paint party. I love all your colors. The green is fresh and vibrant and the violet soothing and perfect for a guest room. My favorite is the red. It sounds like you put a lot of sweat equity into it. Five coats of paint wow!

Love the colors....I know what you mean about the red....I have my formal dining room and one wall in my study that cranberry red and we didn't prime first....BIG MISTAKE!!!!

KarenB said...

Just so you know, it doesn't matter if you prime or not. I primed and still had to paint 5 coats. I love your red kitchen anyway. Wasn't it worth it?

KarenB said...

Oops, red dining room? Sorry about that.

Sharon,
Love ther eed room! We had the same experience. The "ever so helpful" sales guy at SW never mentioned tinted primer. My hubby does all the painting for me, and when he was on the 5th coat in my office, I thought he was gonna kill me! Thanks for sharing!

the colors are absolutely gorgeous - so rich and luscious! But I especially like the knock-down texture on your walls - it adds something extra to the already beautiful colors.
