Jack, Kyle, and I had been talking about how very dark Jack's room was lately. So, of course, I got a wild hair to paint it a different color. A few months ago we discussed what color to paint it. Jack wanted green but we decided that it would not really lighten the room up any more by changing to green - which was our goal! I suggested yellow, because Jack is a HUGE Oregon Duck fan and he loves the green and gold! (I just pretend that really his is Colorado State Ram fan since they have the same colors !) We got some samples, painted them on the wall, then promptly lived with them there for about two months.
Well, this week was spring break for the kids and we decided to tackle the yellow paint. Four coats of paint later below is what happened. I can not tell you how much brighter his room is. The first night he slept in there he woke up in the morning and told me that he felt like he was waking up in the sunshine! It is a little bright that I feel like people should walk in there with sunglasses on. While it might not be my favorite color of wall that we have painted, it sure does make it lighter and brighter in there. Jack loves it. Kyle loves it. And I am glad that it is done!
