From Fabric Swatches to Paint Colors



Our plan for the weekend is to begin painting our dining room.  One wall will be stenciled with a design that looks very similar to a quilt I’ve considered making.  Because of this and to make choosing colors a little easier I’m sticking with what I know — fabrics.  Most of the colors come directly from my current quilting project because I just love it.  I’m going to take these scraps with me to pick similar colors from paint swatches or have them color match directly from the fabrics.  Wish me luck, we have textured walls and that always adds a degree of difficulty.

One note, I did swap out the cerise (the color between the greens and blues) for a bright tomato red.  Much better!

I hope to be sharing project pictures soon!
