a: Bay Sands by Valspar 'aka Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore' - Don't judge me but because I've seen this color more times than I can recall on Pinterest labeled as THE best paint color I wasn't sure what to do when it didn't quite hit the spot of us... In our house we notice too much of a green undertone.
b:Woodlawn Colonial Gray by Valspar- We actually liked this color but since the color we chose was not only going to be in the bright entry way but also the dark hallway upstairs it was too dark for our us.
c: Oatland's Subtle Taupe by Valspar- Christopher actually picked this color out on our second trip to Lowes when the first two choices (a and b) didn't work out.
d: Behr Mineral - I love this gal's blog and swoon over her home so I thought her paint color would be a no brainer! We found it to be a tad too 'icy' for us.
There is no reason we tend to go with Valspar over other paints other than I believe it tends to be cheaper but still great quality. If price wasn't an option I think we'd go with Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams.
Oh HELLO white door!
Honestly, any paint choice would have been better than what was already on the wall. Not only was the previous paint job absolutely horrendous but after we moved in and started painting we realized that our walls were a pink tinted off white... PINK (post painting we noticed that our carpet is the same way too... awesome...)! Chris decided that we should go with option C. I wasn't sold on the choice and needed a lot of reassuring during the painting process but once it was on the wall I loved it! You'll have to come back tomorrow and see!
