12 months later, the bookcases are painted!
but I don’t really like the color.
The original plan was to paint the bookcases white. But after priming, and one coat of white, they were just too stark. (To see the “before” pictures, check out this post about the dinign room from a couple of weeks ago!)
So, I decided to use the leftover wall paint from Adam’s room. It’s called Mercer Blue (Valspar) and it’s a beautiful color, but I’m not really digging it.
Maybe there’s not enough contrast with the wall color?
Maybe it’s just “off” from the wall color?
Two different blues instead of two shades of the same blue?
I don’t know why I don’t like it, but I do know this…
It’s staying like this for awhile, because I’m tired of painting!
What do you think? Darker blue? Maybe a dark gray to tie in with the kitchen countertop?
