Picking Out Paint

Yes, the dreaded 'picking out paint colours'. I find it to be so stressful ...lol. How can you possibly look at a paint sample that is 2" x 2" and decide what a whole room will look like??? We are going to paint the guest bedroom and the dining room. (And maybe the kitchen and bathroom ... shhhhh... lol). I'm going to start with the guest bedroom because it's an easier room to paint. The colour I picked is called Sunset Beige and I bought the paint yesterday.



The colour I have picked for the dining room is called Gold Buff.



I picked the colour out of this picture I have on the wall.



I have to admit, I'm terrified~!~ LOL The dining room is pretty big (it's like a sitting room/dining room) Both colours are a little darker then I normally paint but I'm looking for a drastic change. Right now we just have that off white that they put in new houses. I'm definately into earth tones, I just find them so warm. Of course the samples here look different then in person and will look different again on the walls so wish me luck~!

Thank you so much for the great note cards. I can't wait to see the after pictures when you finish. I hate picking out paint colors too. You're right, how can you tell what something is going to look like on a 2x2 swatch. lol!
