Whenever someone asks me for paint color advice, I always have the same reply: Pick the one that you are immediately drawn to. Paint it on the wall. Live with it for a few weeks. If you don’t love it after those few weeks, then you need to pick another color.
Well, I recently had to take my own advice. I’ve lived with this crazy yellow wall for a few weeks. It was perfect on the swatch. Perfect on the sample that I painted. But on the whole wall? Negatory. It was blinding.
So, I picked a few more yellows to try out. I lived with those samples for a few days. I hated them, too. Yellow was out.
I knew that when I painted the wall bright yellow, I was taking a risk. And risks in decorating are risks worth taking – even if it doesn’t work out in the end.
I yet again grabbed my HomeRight EZ Twist Paint Stick (Amazon affiliate link) and yet another can containing a risky color of paint. It took me an afternoon of rolling, but I immediately knew that this had risk paid off.
The thought of repainting a wall – or a room – seems like a daunting task. But, I binge watched (listened to?) a Real Housewives marathon on Bravo and got to work. I’m telling you – that Paint Stick makes painting and cleaning up really easy. In fact, I even got a paint roller cleaning kit to use this time. It honestly cleans up just as easily as the dude in this video makes it look, y’all.
Risk taking is going to look different for everyone. For some, it may be a piece of furniture painted in a color other than white or black. For others, it may be mixing sheet patterns on their bed. Along those lines, the green wall may be too risky for you. But, it’s just perfect for me.
