    I think our kitchen was Urban Sunrise. It is grey.

    Canyon echo is grey but looks kinda beige in all the sample things. Approaching storm is navy blue. White on white on white is white. Gecko's taint is of course light green.

    I know a lot of people frown on dark colors but now the bedroom is a cave and I like that. Miss ou picked all the colors but I requested something dark for the bedroom. It was neck and neck between Approaching Storm and Black Amethyst (dark purple).

    Have fun repainting when you want to sell. :eek:

    I love foreclosures, there's invariably a bright green or dark purple room somewhere in the house.

    I believe those colors are called "Mountain Dew" and "Dank Drank," respectively.

    Yeah, they won't buy the only 4 bedroom in the whole neighborhood because one bedroom is a beautiful rich navy blue that beckons the approaching storms of olde.

    You'd be surprised. People are weird about stuff that's easily remedied.

    It's located in Oklahoma. If they had any sense they wouldn't live there.

    I had one foreclosure I was looking to buy a few years ago, and it had a crazy hippie landscape painted in the kitchen. Then the bedrooms were bright green, blue, and lavender. Then the living room was white :laughing:

    Sounds like a great room to put a painting logo.

    The first thing that the painter my wife and I hired to paint our house did was talk us, mainly my wife, out of all the bold/dark colors we selected and moved us to lighter/neutral colors.

    My favorite thing about Tony is that he talks all this shit about other people's houses/construction, so I assumed he must live in some perfect home that is above reproach... Then one day he sent me a picture of his rape den/drum room and I realized he was throwing stones from his trog house that was framed by a mad man.

    It's more like Buffalo Bill's house from Silence of the Lambs.

    Well the good news is in 2017 the paint covers almost completely after one coat. The white on white on white covered where my navy blue paints went on the trim in one coat with only a few touch ups needed. I'm not sure when you painted your house but they have some new great paint tech out now days. The Behr Marquee is supposedly a guaranteed one coater but that's $40. Glidden Diamond is $24 and it's a one coater for most, with minor touchups needed if going from super dark to white.

    So paint all the bold shitty colors you desire, it's no longer a challenge. If someone was so stupid as to complain about the storm approaching I'd just get our paint sprayer out and hose down the whole house in white on white

    That rape den with 1960s Naughty by Nature pine is where I remind myself daily that I escaped the ultimate TROG life of the DC Vortex babby. When I was down there playing along to the Spin Doctors "Two Princes" this morning all I could think is "praise the babby jesus I'm not paying $600K+ to share a wall (and/or floors) with agents of the paper pushing administrivia brigade who would complain to the HOA about the asspounding I was putting on the kit this morning."
