After settling on painting the window alcove a beigy tan, I got to Home Depot last Friday and realized.... I just couldn't do it. I couldn't put tan in my bedroom. So I fretted for at least 20 minutes and settled on a blue color, Gulf Winds, by Behr paint.
I opened the can at home and thought I had made a terrible mistake, the color looked so pastel blue.
But luckily, it dried much darker and I LOVE it.
It's just the perfect darkness of blue, like it's in the same family as the green that was already on the walls.
So here you have it, a before and after. I am glad I went with my gut and resisted the tan. It's just not who I am. :)
