i heart a good before and after

When we moved into our house, I would’ve called our kitchen yellow.

Then we actually painted it yellow.

Nearly six years later, the colour (and the paint) were getting a little old. And while we’ve been talking about making a change for a while, we finally had a free afternoon to browse the paint chips at Home Depot recently. Though the kids suggestions of “orange” and “rainbow” were thoroughly considered, we opted for a Behr colour called frozen pond (Yes, the name matters and, as names go, this one felt good to me. No, there’s no actual, explainable rhyme or reason as to which names are acceptable. Some just are and some just aren’t.)

So Mike donned his painting paints, and sent me away because my painting skills don’t suit his insane, type-A particular sensibilities.

The results feel like such a breath of fresh air that I might call Behr and suggest they rename this colour “fresh air.”
