Painting Predicament : Part 2

First I want to say Thank You to all of my lovely bloggy friends for weighing in on my painting predicament post yesterday! I basically left for the store to buy a new color as soon as I posted my blog yesterday.

I know myself (as many of you know me as well haha) and I knew that I wouldn't learn to like it. So I went to the store, picked out a random yellow that I thought would work, bought the paint, went home and tested it out... and FINALLY came out with a winner!! By the time I got home from work last night Josh had already painted the entire room with two coats, Thanks Joshy :) **Poor Josh painted the entire room 3 times in 3 different colors, can we say good sport??!**


Here are a few pictures, bad quality, and the colors aren't really showing true, but you will get the idea.

Here is the second color, Josh called it Rubber Ducky Yellow, this is the paint that had me asking everyone's advice...
Here is the Winning Color! It is a really soft yellow, called Silk Cypress. It kinda looks like something that would be in a nursery haha, but I woke up this morning LOVING it! I wish the picture did it more justice...
Now we just need to get some pictures hung up to make it all homey :)

I can definitely provide services for the lack of picture problem. Looks really cute Katie!

Haha! I knew you couldn't leave it ;).

I really like the winning color and it's name. The mention of macaroni yellow in your post yesterday had me craving some mac and cheese.

Oh yes, I like this new color MUCH better. That other yellow just clashes totally with what you have in your room and is way too bright if you're trying to calm down and go to sleep. Good choice!

i have to admit ... i like the rubber ducky yellow. but compared to the new color - much better! it's very soft and not as harsh on the eyes. and what a good man you got there! i wont let mrb within 10" of a paintbrush!

I had a feeling you were going to change it.. I like the new look but am still feeling the rubber ducky yellow! :) lol

What a pretty color you ended up with! I think the above yellow is pretty but VERY bright ha! I think it would've hurt my eyes getting up every morning....and your room is soo pretty!

I love the final product. I don't think I could have lived with the rubber ducky color either...that was pretty yellow!
