Allen has really bad timing on offering opinions. I asked for input on paint color for our living room. I told him that I was thinking about blue. He kind of made a face and said that he wasn't sure about blue. I showed him the color I was thinking about, and he said that was an ok color. So, we went to Obi today, which is a Home Depot equivalent. I bought paint for the whole house. Not too many different colors this time. Blue for the living room and Ashlyn's room, yellow for the kitchen and the guest room, and a more neutral yellow (closer to ochre, but light) for our bedroom. The paint was a bit more expensive than what we've paid for paint in the past. We will only live here for three years, so I'm not going to be painting this place more than once. I asked Allen about the color, before I had them mix it. He told me to get what I wanted. After we get home, Allen tells me that he doesn't like the blue. Good grief. Our living room is going to be blue. If we don't like it, our next living room will be another color. I'd just had enough of green and yellow for now, in the living room anyway. Apparently, I still like yellow in every other room in the house. Now, I just have a lot of painting to do before we get our furniture.
