So we have lived in our new house for 2 1/2 months.

Clearly this means it's time for a change.

I must paint the walls.

If you're confused, just keep in mind I have ADD. Like serious, affecting every portion of my life ADD. ADD that even filters in to my choice of paint colors.

So it's time to change.

I picked up a few paint samples (most specialty paint stores will custom mix any paint in a tiny $2 size to paint on your wall and try a few options).

I went home, and in between stirring dinner on the stove, letting the dogs out to go the bathroom, and getting the puppy ready for 'Puppy Kindergarden' - I painted the samples up on the wall.

The first was a lovely blue color, Benjamin Moore Beach Glass. It is a beatiful, spa like green/blue/grey. I love the color, but it wasn't right for that particular wall. I open up sample number two and my lovely husband Jeremy looks inside the tiny tin.
"Uh, Kara...what is the name of that paint color?" He asks
"Wasabi!" I proudly proclaim as I begin painting it on the wall

"Uh, Kara...if that color was named 'mucus', would you have bought it?" He replies
I quickly gaze from the tiny tin, up to the wall, and back to the tiny tin. Okay, so maybe I did kind-of buy it because it was called Wasabi. Maybe like 30% of the reason. Okay, okay, so it was like 70% of the reason. But seriously, with a name like Wasabi, how can you not buy it!?!?  

And did look like I had painted a giant goober on the wall.

But then it dried, and became a lovely color. So as of this evening....we will be sporting one sweet mucus colored wall.

Hahaha! I love your ADD projects! Can't wait to see the wall!

"Hey is that 'wasabi'?"
"No, it'snot!"

At first glance I gravitated toward the wasabi color...I think it will look great!
