GLG29 Rainforest Fern

Turned my funk around last night.

Got ambitious.
Headed to Home Depot & picked up a quart of Glidden's GLG29 "Rainforest Fern" in an eggshell finish.

Took a white, 49" skinny wall in the new digs that was originally home to my piano.  Shifted the piano & coordinating wall decor to the adjacent-ish wall.  Taped off the skinny wall & transformed it in anticipation for the flat screen TV that will grace it's surface in about, oh, I don't know, 5 years.  =)

Forgot to take a before picture of the skinny wall.  Just believe me, it was JUST AS WHITE as the rest of the house.  (Which is shockingly only a shade or two whiter than my legs this summer.)

Now that it's finished, it's quite lovely.
I'm sort of in love with my skinny wall.
(Note: Don't believe the hype, Frog Tape is NOT that great on textured walls.  My edges where I was too short to tape it originally look WAAAAAY better than the edges I taped.  Save some money & just take your time.  Promise you'll be happier and you won't be scratching your head trying to brainstorm how to get GLG29 Rainforest Fern out of the deeper recesses of your wall texture.)

The rest of the family better get home soon or else this place may turn into a Crayola 96-count box, minus the sharpener!  =)

Happy Friday, I'm off to prep for the big Patient Appreciation Celebration and subsequently party like it's 1999!

I love it really!
Great color.

I think the Gusty Ridge is really starting to perk up!

I kind of love your skinny wall too!

And it took my like 8 tries before I realized that taping was a waste of time! I had to go through and re-edge my entire house slowly and painfully until I was finally happy with the result!

Love the green! My most favorite color and yet nothing in my house is that color--hello! And I must say that swimming suit is DARLING. I am heading over on that link to see what I can find. Maybe we can be twinners.....of course you need to move here first:)
