powder room paint



i had a friend ask me recently about paint colors. she is painting her powder room. if you read back in my blog's archives, i've listed most of my paint color favorites. some may be found in the comments, but i'm pretty sure they are all covered. i really love paint. i would even start my own paint line if i knew how to do it. sadly, some of my favorite paints are no longer in existence :( martha stewart is no longer at sherwin williams and french general no longer carries their paint on-line. you can, however, still find my powder room paint. it is called relaxed khaki by sherwin williams. i think it is a great color. just basic, like a good pair of khakis. hey, what a perfect name :)

I'm a fan of Relaxed Khaki, myself. My living room, foyer, and hall are painted that color. It's very cozy!

S/W has an old Khaki called, I believe, Kinetic Khaki...or something like that...I've written it down somewhere...and it is great :)

and I love S/W's Horsehair, Autumn Vineyard, Burlap...and Noble Brass :)

I love paint, too :)

Just about a month ago, I tossed my huge box of paint chips away because, well, it was monster-sized...

the next day, I was a wreck...

So, I completely get the whole Paint thing...

I heard Martha Stewart Paint is now available at Lowes. I'm not sure if the colors are the same though.

WOW. I love your blog. I love your entry about surrender. To me that's what life is all about: unconditional love and surrender to God's will, knowing that everything is in it's divine perfection. And I love paint, too. I just posted a picture tonight of my frontroom. I mixed the paint myself! Your house looks SO beautiful. I feel like I could sit in it all day. I can relate to giving the kids candy in church. I give my three year old crackers in church, which he munches loudly! Today we tried toast. It was quieter! ha. Thanks for sharing all of those beautiful pictures. I especially love your porch. Here in California we don't have porches like those, but I wish we did. Oh... and I loved the words on your wall. I wish I had some to share right now, but I took most of mine down when we moved and haven't put any back up yet. Jolene has some great ones on her blog. That's where I found you.
Love! Wendy

Like a previous comment, I've seen Martha Stewart over at Lowe's. Wonder if they're the same colors...

I have 2 rooms in this paint! Great color! Your house is just so warm and beautiful.
I love it!

We are going to re paint the entire
ground level this Summer...have not decided exactly what colors yet!

Hugs,
Sue

I have been looking high and low for a good, but not dark, neutral color. Thanks for the tip!

Love that color. Why must they discontinue so many favorite things?

I didn't know that about French General! You can still get all of Martha's colors mixed at Sherwin Williams. I love your relaxed khaki and may test that for my dining room.

I am so sad to here that French General is not selling their paint by mail.

Would you mind sharing what type of paint you use to paint furniture (satin, semigloss)??
