It’s been a week since I posted so I have tons to share.
Pop a Diet Coke (or a cold beer) and get comfy…
As I have posted about painting my first floor rooms over the past year,
I have received some questions about paint colors.
Here they all are in one place.
I’m still on that quest for an organized blog. (Wink.)
This custom creamy white is in every room in my downstairs.
Walls and trim in living and dining rooms.
Trim in entry.
Trim and cabinets in kitchen.
Walls and trim in family room.
I know nothing about paint formulas.
I included below the information from the top of my paint can.
I think it will work with any paint brand but I’m not promising anything!
Formula: Extra White base
BAC COLORANT OZ 32 64 128
B1-Black – 1 1 –

This Laura Ashley yellow used to be on my living room walls
and below the chair rail in my dining room.
I adored it for years but eventually got tired of it.
It’s very bright and I used semi-gloss which didn’t help.
It remains on my kitchen island and I do still love it there.
Laura Ashley colors are available at Lowe’s.
Navy paint colors are hard. I have tried over the years
to find the perfect one. I didn’t have much success
until I found Naval by SW.
In my opinion, it is a classic and true navy blue.
When I was googling “Naval” to get this paint swatch image,
the results brought up a bunch of my blog pictures.
It may sound lame but I was thrilled…
my mouth sort of dropped open and I laughed out loud.
I know…incredibly lame!
To make things simple,
once I found Naval I just used the lighter versions
found on the paint strip for my walls.
Windy Blue has just a hint of periwinkle.
It’s very fresh and bright.
Upward is the next lightest shade from Windy Blue.
Honestly, on my walls I can’t really tell much difference.
I probably should have gone up 2 shades.
Live and learn.
Life on Sutton Place is all about finding a new normal
since the passing of my father-in-law.
Our days are OK but in the evenings we are a bit lost.
The beautiful weather has helped. My husband is golfing again
and I’m trying to get out with Kelly for a walk.
As I have said, life goes on.
I have not hung my gallery wall in my entry yet
but I made myself this little tool.
Sabrina Soto showed me how to do it.
Hopefully it will make the process easier and quicker.
I’ll let you know on that though…
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
I’ll close with something beautiful.
My first Knock-Out rose of the year.
I’m working on a big order for Miss Mustard Seed
so when I send that off I’ll be back.
Not sure when that will be.
