I know I haven’t posted in quite a while, but I’m back, employed, and in a new city! During my last trip to California, I received a full time job offer and started a couple days after coming back from California. It’s been a busy few months with starting my new job, finding a house, and moving in.

The house I’m renting has a lot of character, with a lot of character needs a little updating. I painted my room and bathroom. What I’ve been learning is, no matter what paint color you choose, it will always end up not as what you were expecting. One of my roommates painted her room and it came out a lot darker than she had anticipated. Therefore, when I went to choose my color, I went a shade lighter in hopes of my room not turning out super dark. I thought the color would turn out a little darker than it did, especially because I painted on dark walls. My room is now a super bright aqua color. I was hoping for a little more sea foam green look, but the color has grown on me.

I was hoping for more of BEHR Green Parakeet, instead I went a shade lighter with BEHR Aqua Wish. I used primer and paint in one which was super effective on the dark walls and the color turned out almost exactly as it did on the sample paper.

My bathroom was also a dark blueish, so I tried to lighten it up a little with a hint of lavender, using the BEHR Misty Lavender. This room came out just the color I wanted, still light and almost white with a lavender tint to it.

This was my first time painting a room myself and it honestly came out a lot better than I expected. Painting also took a lot longer than I first thought. It was a really great learning experience and now I feel like I can paint anything! Which was helpful because I ended up painting my dresser, mirror, and side table- I’ll have another post on these later!

Thanks for stopping by!
