Mostly, as the sickness allowed this weekend, we've been trying to finalize paint colors. We're very close, but I wish to note that the paint store completely FAILED to color-match a Farrow & Ball color (Radicchio) to a Benjamin Moore paint. It's almost entirely missing the pink tones, and ended up kind of ugly. Argh. I may end up just using F&B in Kavi's room, but I'm going to take one more stab at finding a BM color that I'm happy with first. I'm annoyed at the waste of $17 of paint, but on the other hand, I suppose I learned something useful, and it makes me feel a lot better that I didn't try to just match F&B colors for the first floor overall. Could have been disastrous.
And that's my life this weekend -- an obsession with paint. I'm supposed to give the final colors to Pam on Monday (and go pick up the F&B paints myself). This is my tentative plan, for the curious. Still subject to change, and needing Kevin-approval.
