My husband and I, along with our four small children, live in a 1919 foursquare in Fort Worth, Texas. We have been renovating it for six years, and yes, we have lived in it the whole time! Chapter by chapter, while dealing with white dust and blocking off parts of the house in plastic sheeting, our adventures are chronicled here.
chalk art by Kat Phillips, TheGrayAttic.comI've got some goodness going in the girls room (coming soon), and I felt like I needed to show some love in my boys room, too. Before we moved into this house, I would come over at night and paint with a flashlight and go home when I got too tired. (we didn't have electricity here yet) You can see in this photo the chalkboard map wall I made for them. This is the larger of the kids rooms, but it only has two windows so there is not a ton of natural light in there. I feel like the current wall color with the black wall in the same room just feels too dark. Therefore, I'm thinking I need to lighten up the other three walls. When I'm trying to decide on a paint color, here's what I do.
