You see, I've been wary of accent walls ever since the inception of Trading Spaces. There was always some crazy accent-wall theme in Doug's deviously mean designs and Hildy' loopy ideas. I didn't like it, so I've steered clear all these years. Until yesterday.
I was hot. I was sweaty. My tomato plants are not doing well, and the whole 'thunder with no rain' thing was the tipping point. I was bound and determined to paint SOMETHING blue. I needed something the color of water and rain and all things cool. So this is what happened.
Actually, I love it. I can't believe it took me this long to do it. And while it may not be rainy and cool outside, I have a blue wall. The house feels cooler already.
