Encouraged by this photo in a recent Pottery Barn catalog, we decided to go forward with our slate blue walls.
Our actual color choice is Silver Hill by Behr. I managed to clamber off the couch long enough to get some "action shots" before Ben caught me and forced me to rest.
It is really really hard for me to sit still and even more so when I know someone else is working hard. He did such a great job, though. And don;t worry, we aren't keeping the pumpkin color. It'll be white (probably by Sunday at the rate Ben is going). Soon we can start planning and saving for family room furniture! Wee!
