We went with a color called November Rain on the walls in the dining room. We used it in one of our previous homes, and thought it would be a nice, fresh choice for the dining room here at TLC, too. It's a pale green/gray, and it's really neat because depending upon what time of day it is, and what the sun is doing, sometimes it looks more green...
...and sometimes it looks more gray...
...and sometimes it looks green/gray!
It's a Benjamin Moore color, but we had ours mixed at True Value. We've been really happy with their EasyCare paint.
According to the folks at TV, it's "formulated to the most rigid of VOC regulations and exceeds the strictest industry standards, so you not only get a truly green product, you also get a long-lasting, durable finish backed by a lifetime warranty". Sweet!
We got our wall color in a satin finish and we're going to paint the kitchen with some more of it next week!
We painted our ceiling a color called Moonlight White (also a Benjamin Moore color) and plan to paint the wonder wall with that same color when we're finished caulking it all out. (The wonder wall is currently painted a Sherwin Williams color called Alabaster, which is slightly warmer than Moonlight White.)
But right now, we're just concentrating on cleaning up the dust-lake in our kitchen.
Tile removal is a messy job, y'all.
