The problem is I HATE PAINTING. It requires coordination and the ability not to make a huge mess. These are not my best things. My grandfather? He could paint CEILINGS without any paint drips ANYWHERE (my grandmother pointed this out after my dad and uncle's attempt to paint her living room was, um, a little less successful. My grandfather>his descendants, obvi.).
But the Sherwin Williams paint sale is this weekend, and 40% off is pretty spectacular. Our kitchen, hallway, bathroom, and bedroom all need painting. Yeah, I'll be doing one. Know your limits, people. One at a time.
Now I just have to pick a paint color. I think I'm going to attack the bathroom (eel!) even though it kind of scares me.
Pink. White. I rather love the pink, but I do want it make the whole room look a little more modern and connected to the rest of the house. I love the sophisticated dark walls with the sweet pink tile.

However, going with a nice, dark greeny-blue to tie the bathroom in with the accent colors of the living room seems like a good first step to a cohesive household color scheme.

Martha Stewart's Peacock paint color is a perennial favorite that I'd love to use SOMEWHERE. The paint chip has been hanging out in my nightstand drawer forever. Young House Love used it in their guest room, confirming my thoughts that it would look fantastic in a room.
So...any ideas? Thoughts? Stories of painting tiled bathrooms?
(I really am going to paint the credenza...just as soon as it stops raining. Painting the bathroom might happen first.)
