So, we got the paint bug, but it bit somewhere unexpected: We are painting our ancient bed frame. Ikea pine does not age too, too well, so Geoff decided we should get artsy fartsy with it. He sent me to The Home Depot to choose color and last night he and Max were sanding and priming. I warned Geoff that my color choices are always highly influenced by the season, so thankfully black and orange Halloween season is behind us, but I am definitely drawn to an autumnal, pre-Christmas palette. A random customer made an unsolicited gasp of rejection at my "very" green choice. White? Boring.
Blue? Cold.
Red? Too intense.
Brown? I'd wake up hungry for brownies.
Yellow, orange, pink or purple? Those would clash, even with our eclectic mix.
Swiss coffee? Been there, done that.
Green? Thoughtful, forest invoking color(as in "for rest"), compliments dresser and bedding... I'll let you know how it goes.

I can't wait to see what you end up with. :) I'm a huge fan of color and love to see what other people come up with.
