Living Room Paint Colors

So Jim FINALLY got the last bit of linoleum up off the sub floor. It took quite a long time and with the few hours we have available to work on it after work, it took a lot longer than we had originally planned lol. Isn't that always how it is?

Anywho...our hardwood is supposed to be installed this Tues-Wed. We went to pick up the last few trim pieces this weekend, but for some strange reason, they didn't have three of the pieces we needed. Very confusing since our order has already been fully paid for. So who knows if those pieces will get here before the install is finished. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Next up is painting our "lounge" (aka formal living room). I picked up six samples this weekend and will be painting them on poster board to hang up on the walls to see which one, if any, we decide to go with. On the computer screen there doesn't seem to be much difference between them, but the samples have a little more color to them.

This weekend was pretty busy. Besides spending two hours of our day to drive out to the flooring place to not pick up the rest of our order, I put another coat of white on the trim on the bay window in the "lounge", primed all the trim and door jambs in the hallway and added a coat of white, did some homework, got in a run on the treadmill, took our bottle returns back (~$80 thank you very much lol), made a trip to Home Depot for the paint samples and some plywood to replace some of the sub floor, cleaned my car, and cut in the hallway with primer.

Once we figure out a color for the living room, next up is the hallway and the dining area.
