I am obsessed with painting, because I want to get the to-be homeschool room finished. I'm taking before, during, and after shots to share later. Currently, I'm working on a bright pinkish-red shelf that goes three-fourths of the way around the room. It is a giant difficulty to paint with deep, bright, red.

As much as this occupies my mind right now, it can't be that exciting for everyone else, so I'll just finish off by listing the names of all the colors I'm using. If I ever lose my day job, I want to name paint colors for a living. These particular shades are Behr Paints. Behr is my favorite.

On the main portion of the three walls: Brown Teepee

On the built-in shelves and cubbies: Three Cheers for Pooh (gotta love their Disney line - this one is crazy red)

On the upper wall (above the high shelves): Sunporch (yellow)

And on the accent wall: Americana (blue)

There you have it. Considering the names of the colors, I might at any given time feel like I'm shacked up in a folksy teepee with a honey-loving bear sipping lemonade on the veranda. Do you think that was Behr's intention?

And, oh, as long as I'm advertising for Behr free of charge, I might as well throw in a plug for Purdy brushes (shown above) --- they are the best brushes in the world even when you're dealing with a psychedelic red.

odd... i would have thought Three Cheers For Pooh would have been the brown color... :)

Sounds like the room is going to be a great classroom!

I love Behr paint too, only paint we'll use after making the mistake of buying cheap paint, what a terrible mistake, goes to show you get what you pay for.

We did the boys room in Brown Tepee and I love it! It is a great color. Bryan loves Behr paint too! Sounds like fun on the school room, can't wait to see the pictures. I just did away with my school room and am going to the old default dining room table!! I will probably "covet" your room when I see it especially with all the great colors!
