30 Minutes or Less

The other day Charlie calls and says, "pick a paint color" - umm what? "Pick a paint color," he said again. I told him I'm not painting anything. My parents are coming and we don't have time to be painting. He said, "I want to paint the guest room, take it or leave it." WHAT? He's says he can go to the paint store at lunch and then paint the room that night. Ummm, you are giving me 30 mins to pick a paint color that you tell me I have to live with for the entire time we live in this house. Okay, no problem...........

I usually have a good eye for these things, but it was a little pressured. I threw out some colors and he said, "I want red" and I said "NO". Then I found this on the Pottery Barn site, Salsa Dancing. 



He said, perfect and went to buy it. I was still not totally sold on this. I mean I just picked a color in less than 30 mins.

He got home and started painting....


It's not as orange as it looks but it is definitely a bold color. As soon as it went up, I knew we made the right choice. Then I went to get the bedding that was going in the room and it made me feel even better.



And finally - the finished room. Well, finished in the sense that it is painted. I still have to decorate and hang curtains.
