The best thing about spray paint is when you decide you don’t really like the color of a home décor item and you can take it outside and spray/re-spray it a color that you like better and in about an hour change the look of your home in small and simple way!
Or at least that is the way I felt last week as I changed a few colors in my house.
I watch the trends and I pay attention to them and sometimes I even try them out – but sometimes they just don’t do it for me.
I like Coral. I even painted a few thing in my home (yet to be revealed) coral and made this cute coral sign and everything…
but it just didn’t go with my décor – and most of it was repainted last week.
I have even been trying to lighten up my kitchen a bit with whites and green and aqua – but even that combo was making me a little bit crazy and I repainted a few of the white things and brought in reds and oranges and browns - again.
I love greens and browns and reds and yellows and oranges…. they are always my go-to colors of choice.
I told my husband that I wanted to go “outside my box” with color in our home and some of the colors really work for me – like the gray I painted my home. I love it! I was and still am really pleased with the outcome. It is so beautiful! And it works great with all my go-to colors. But then other color combos I tried – failed in my book. I have seen other people do them and I love their outcome – which is why I wanted to try, but for me – I just couldn’t make it work.
As I was spraying I was asking myself “why did you do this in the first place? You know what colors you love.” and the only answer I could think of was that I wanted to be trendy and cool – and have all sorts of trendy colored projects to show you – but really, that isn’t me. And why was I working so hard and wasting time and money trying to be something that I am not?
I am grateful for this lesson because I love the gray of my home and the green in my kitchen (which goes with the trendy colors or MY colors!) and I wouldn’t have those colors if I didn’t go outside my box a bit –
Have you guys gone outside your box? Do you like the outcome? What colors are your go-to colors?
