  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 4 (thanks to my husband for this one, he’s a peach!)
  • Would I do it again? yes! We loved this color, thanks to my wonderful designer best firend for this color tip!
  • What I would do differently: we’re hoping to do an accent wall in the family room with the same color, but there is so much to do when you move, not sure when we can get that one done!
  • Items used: Benjamin Moore Alexandria Beige (we painted over a rusty bright orange which was already there, and didn’t quite go with our furniture)

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
