We chose a paint color! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you might want to refer to this post from two weeks ago in which I detailed the three main garden projects of the summer and asked for people to vote on a paint color for this ugly cement wall that is the side of our garage. The choice was between Crystal Rapids (the lighter, slightly bluer one on top) and Tropical Trail (the darker, slightly greener one on the bottom). Both are Behr paint from Home Depot. I also posted the paint choices to social media and people overwhelmingly went for Crystal Rapids. Well, I can now reveal to you what we went with…
The 256 Project was recently contacted by a lovely lady named Pauli, who owns a condo in Chicago and is looking into putting up backsplash in her kitchen. Pauli asked, “What do you think about backsplashes??? I’d really like a grey, but I’m not sure if that’s out of style now. My cabinets are cherry, appliances chrome and countertop is black granite with some specs of green and silver/white in there.”
Yeah!! I love a fun project with beautiful results! And so #ProjectPauli commenced. Here is the e-design process we went through.
What is the point of having two separate areas of books in one small house, one set of bookshelves in the office (appropriate location) and the other set in the dining room (less appropriate place)? That is the question driving one of our top projects planned for 2017: creating one full wall unit of books that will include a desk in the office.
