We are in the midst of kicking our tail in high gear to get our guest room/craft room set up, since the in-laws are coming and up until this point it's been primarily un-packing central. It being the craft room, a lot is going up on the walls. It seemed a bit pointless to paint the walls, so I decided instead we'd just paint the trim in a fun color. So this is our project this week.
 Originally, I wanted yellow. I told Griff  "Think 1970's Marigold". He just smiled and nodded. We picked a color, and I got home and immediately started to second guess myself. All the other colors in our home are cool colors. Blues, Greens, and Purples. Suddenly, yellow trim seemed very out of character and OMG we should have picked a purple. But Griff was like "No, let's just do this color, if we change our minds later, it's not a big deal. We can paint it again one day easily enough" (obviously I just paraphrased the shit out of Griff.)
Once I started doing the room, it felt right though. I don't remember the name of the color. It's Autumn something...but to me it should have been called Yellow Brick Road. I think I will move my collection of green glass into this room, and set alongside my Ruby Slippers. I'm excited to see everything put together in here and start using it on a regular basis!
