Here are some night shots. The lighter of the two colours is an ICI colour named Stone Harbour, a very soft grey with beigey undertones (greige). The darker colour is Ashpalt by Benjamin Moore, which was free from the recycle centre. I refuse to pay a fortune for paint, my bff swears by Color Place paint at Wally world. She has been using it since she moved to South Carolina and trust me when I say, she knows about paint. I used it and it was FANTASTIC! No drips, no splatter, covered like butter. I put it on good and well and only did one coat. I know you are supposed to do two, but I’m tellin’ ya, if you paint well, you can get away with one. I used an eggshell finish.
Here are the two colours, side by side.
These curtains were dirt cheap at Ikea and I still love them, actually I love them more now. They remind me of a forest of white birch bark trees ( I know, I’m weird)
Now that my tv doesn’t allow viewing from both sofa’s, I had to come up with a way to have it swivel. I bought a wooden lazy susan from the thrift store for $3, sprayed it (didn’t do a very good job of it) and put the tv on it, now it swivels ;)
