Barbie's Office

I spent two days last week painting my office. I did it all myself, from moving most of the furniture (with a little help from DH) to set up, clean up, everything. Gone is the dingy sage green so past its prime. I picked out a lovely shade of dusty rose that looked absolutely perfect on the chip. Well, let me tell you - it's worth investing in those $3.99 sample bottles of paint. Rather than dusty rose, the paint dried to a cotton candy pink that would make a lovely color for clothing. (I love pink and actually have jeans, a jacket and many shirts this color). But it's not what I'd envisioned for my office. What it is, however, is clean and fresh. And it looks great with my green accessories.

So, what do you think? I will say, that part of my Barbie collection does seem very much at home now - more than before, particularly Wedgewood Barbie, my fave. Now - will it help the creative process? I'll get back to you on that.

Too neat! How can you work when you can see the top of your desk! :-)

I know what you mean about color. When we moved, DD#1 wanted a yellow room, and DD#2 wanted pink. The yellow was bright as the sun, and the pink was way into strawberry land. Several years later, DD#1 repainted her room herself, a more muted shade of yellow.

I've taken over DD#2's room for my office and it's a soft peach.

Terry - LOL! Too many papers on my desk distract me, but nevertheless, I often have that situation!
Peach sounds relaxing.
Katie - thanks. It's growing on me, but I'll definitely do a small patch first next time.
