The Reveal: Hello Sweet Daphne

Have I provided enough suspense for the week?

Ginny, over at Let Your Light Shine, asked that I provide a "before" photo showing the before color.  This is the best I could do.  It's peach!!

It was a mistake that we've lived with for years.

It took a long time to decide what to do.  In the end, we decided that, no matter how light we went, the rooms would still be dark.  Therefore we decided to stay bold.

We finally found a green that would compliment the bold teal(ish) color in the dining room.
It's Benjamin Moore's Sweet Daphne.
I tried to link with the sample on the site but couldn't get it to work.

The photos turned out close but not quite doing the spring green color justice.

It does look great with the color in the dining room although neither color in the photo below is true.

We are happy with the choice for at least a few years.

It only took one coat making the $60 a gallon well worth the cost.

The photo above is way off.

The photo above and below is the closest to the true color.

Hope you all have a colorful and fun weekend!
