I painted our spare bedroom today. When we moved in, this room and the nursery were both painted baby-poop brown. I think the seller was trying to be very chic and Pottery Barn-esque, but he failed miserably. I thought anything would be better than the shades he chose.
You know the decorating rule of thumb that says a color will always look darker once it's on the walls? I should have listened to that. It's not horrible, and it is better than the brown, but it's a lot more intense than I anticipated.
