Actually we let both boys paint the sample colors on the wall, and none of these colors won.
But a few more sample colors and a few more spots and we had picked our color. I don't have a really good before pic of the kitchen/living room wall, but this gives you a pretty good idea of what it looked like before. We also painted the wall by our fireplace and around our pantry door in the kitchen.
Bart did all the painting and only had one incident wherein he stuck his toes in the paint tray!What do you think?
