Now I've REALLY Lost My Dang Mind!

OK, stepping out of my comfort zone completely here.

For those of you who know me, you are familiar with the part of my personality that prevents me from choosing paint colors, wall tiles, or plumbing fixtures. I cannot explain this indecisive part of me, as I usually have no problem choosing anything else (new cars, babies' names, pizza toppings, etc); it's just there. Even after I have chosen a wall color and painted an entire room in that color, I still can waver between love and hate for the new color. Maybe I'm fickle. If I am, only my husband should be worried. As it is, he has no idea that I'm about to post this particularly crazy idea on this blog. (D.R.A.M.A.)

Anyhoo, we need to re-paint three "major" rooms in our house and three-ish major rooms at our lake house. Needless to say, the part of my brain that is supposed to choose the wall colors for these rooms is scared fecal-less. Here's where you, the enlightened and fashion-forward readers of this blog, come in: help me choose!

I can narrow the choices down to 2 or 3 colors per room, but you have to vote for the one you think I should use!

Let's start with our "regular" house and worry about the vacation house later (like Spring... of 2012?) .Later this week, I will post pictures of our living room, dining room, and kitchen. In the same post I will try to figure out how to put in a voting widget (tech-y suggestions?) that shows my paint color choices for each room. Then... YOU VOTE! Whichever paint color receives the most votes will get slapped up on the walls of that room. Promise. I will even post "after" pictures to prove my honesty and commitment.

Truly, you are doing me a great service. Now, if you could do the actual painting for me...


  1. I am so completely jealous you won the $50 card to Pottery Barn from Rants. Way. To. Go!!!
    You also totally have to write about it because many MANY people will come to your page to see what you are all about!!

  2. hey chickie1 you do know Deborah goes to school for interior design and she'd help?? Amyx I think is her last name. She's on the group, helped us get our old house in sellable condition.

  3. Oh yeah! I forgot about that! Thanks! I'm so poky about this whole thing (probably mentally paralyzed!), and I just can't seem to get my bee-hind into gear on this. Plus, every month I spend the "painting money" on silly things, like groceries or snow pants or electricity... ;-) I'll get it together by March.... I think....
