Paint colors

Today we went and looked at our new apartment and can I just say, I'M SO EXCITED!!! The place is so awesome! As far as I can tell at this point (without doing a super thorough inspection), the only two things that stink is we can't remove any of the blinds (mini or vertical) and we can't install overhead lights in the bedrooms. I seriously don't understand why people don't have ceiling lights... maybe to cut down on cost? It just baffles me. There aren't any in the living room either so between the three bedrooms and the living room, we'll have to get some additional lighting. I think I may have just found a solution at Target though so I'll have to check it out.

Here are the paint colors we're going with for the three bedrooms:

Master bedroom (Arabian Sands)

K's bedroom (Winter Wheat)

Playroom (Pale Moss Green)


  1. Love the colors! I'm so glad you're excited. When exactly are you moving? I bet you're dying to make it yours. :)

  2. Thanks! Oh my gosh, YES!!! I AM dying to get in there and make it ours. We were lucky enough to have been able to get in this past weekend and start painting early because they are putting new carpet in and I asked if we could paint before that so I didn't have to be as careful and they let us. Score! I had forgotten how long it takes to tape and edge and roll a room alone but it was so worth it. I got K's room and our room done (the smallest and biggest of the three bedrooms) and I have the top half of the play room taped. I didn't want to tape the bottom trim because I didn't want it to get in the way for the carpet guys. The carpet is coming sometime today so I'm really anxious to get back in there and see how it looks. It's an awesome place. I'm SUPER excited. You guys will really have to come visit someday when you have a little break in your schedule or something. Hopefully the cats won't kill Balky though.

  3. You're so cute! The cats could be a problem for Balk, but we could always make him sleep in the car. :)

    Good luck with the big move, and say hello to Mom and Dad for us this weekend. You'll have to send me your new mailing address when it's all official.

    Love you's guys!
