Another change

It really was a miracle that I was able to choose the paint colors for the church last summer without making a mistake. I don't say that lightly. I prayed about it a lot. I know me and I was way in over my head. God gave me the colors - sometimes I actually saw pictures of walls in my head painted the finished color. It was amazing.

I was reminded of that miracle today. I have to paint my hallway again. FOR THE THIRD TIME!
The first time it was a gray-brown color. I had wanted it more of a brown-gray color. (does that make sense?) It would have been perfect for the grand kids room which was way to blue-gray for my liking. So this week I used left-over paint that Kellie and I had used to do the nursery for Noah and Oliver. Very cute there, very awful here! It's a bright red. What was I thinking?! I don't go for bold, bright colors. The nursery had a lot of white bead board so it worked. I'm talking a hallway here with no windows. Warren said it was scary to walk through it! I don't know what color I'm going to repaint it yet but it will be repainted. In the meantime I used the red outside on an old piece of furniture I use to hold dishes. Was blue, now red. I love it!

I'll figure out the hallway. I just think I'll pray first.
