Now onto paint colors!

Remember when I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out what color to paint the room where I did the faux silver leaf treatment on the doors? While I was looking for the right color, I got so many ideas from Hometalk.com. Hometalk is quite an inspirational community of DIYers.

I posted this image of the unfinished room to their site asking for paint color recommendations…

The community responded and gave me so many great paint color suggestions that sparked new inspirations. I was suddenly considering wonderful colors that I would not have previously given a second thought. You can see all the helpful responses I received right here. Thank you Hometalk. And you can see the final room reveal with the new brilliant color right here!

But that’s not the only way Hometalk has helped me. Their plethora of wonderful tips and tutorials has given me lots of great DIY ideas! So I’m thrilled to now have the opportunity to partner with Hometalk and curate a DIY board for them.

I’ve put together a board with all kinds of Tips For Choosing The Perfect Paint Color. Whether you’re looking for the perfect grey (i.e., the new beige) or trying to decide what color to paint your kitchen cabinets or even curious to know the limits of Paint Color Matching, it’s all right here. So check out all the Tips For Choosing The Perfect Paint Color board and make sure to follow me on Hometalk too.

      Thanks Victoria. Yes, Hometalk has been very helpful. Another great resource for feedback is also asking your FB fans. It’s a great way to interact with your readers (although FB doesn’t quite get the views it used to).

      I know exactly what you mean Tina. I had to try 5 or 6 six colors before I found the right one for my parents’ living room. I wanted just a plain light grey. Samples on the wall came out too pink, or too blue, etc. I finally found Valspar Mountain Grey, which worked out perfectly.

    The turquoise walls caught my eye. Don’t know if I’d like them year round though. I do love the faux silver closet. Very nice.
