Paint, paint, paint

I’ve been in our new house for ten days now and am currently sitting on a borrowed lawn chair from the new neighbors.  We have all the paint on the walls, except for maybe the half-bath.  The fireplace wall is “Gator” blue.  Calling it Gator blue was the only way to get Jonathan to agree to it.  I think it is my favorite color in the entire house.  The other walls in the living room are called Vanilla Custard. The reading room/study/former formal dining room is a deep blueish, green with a little gray…I call it Stormy Blue because frankly, I can’t remember the name!  We picked out a pretty shade of yellow called Banana Split for the small bedroom upstairs and the half-bath, but it didn’t quite turn out the way it should.  I suppose the small bedroom looks ok, if not a little bright, but the bathroom is awfully blinding.  It will get changed, maybe when my mom and aunt get here to help with the unpacking and decorating.
