And the winner is….


November 7, 2012 by Decorum DIYer


there isn’t a winner….

I know, how anti-climatic

is that?

These are the poll results:

Which color should I paint the french provincial bedroom suite?

Answer Votes Percent  
Aqua/Turquoise 5 31%  
Gray 5 31%  
Coral 3 19%  
Baby Pink 2 13%  
Black 1 6%  
Yellow 0 0%  
White 0 0%  
Ivory/Cream 0 0%
Hot Pink 0 0%

As you can see, ‘gray‘ and ‘aqua/turquoise‘ are tied for first.

Bummer, I was hoping for a clear winner.

Although, truth be told, I was thinking of mirroring my poll results after the Presidential

election results,

in the event of a ‘electoral vote’ winner vs. a ‘popular vote’ winner.

I know, I’m geeky bad.

Anyway, here are my thoughts:

  1. Gray may be the better choice in terms of resale, as it is more neutral and therefore easier to incorporate into an already existing room/home.
  2. The aqua/turquoise is beautiful, but probably a bit too taste specific.
  3. Since I haven’t received any interest regarding a custom color for a specific purchaser, I’ll need to follow the rules of the vote and choose the color.

Well, since it was a tie, I think it is only fair that both colors be used.

Of course, not on the same piece/set.

What I haven’t told you yet is that I have been working on another freebie project that also

requires a new coat of paint.


Problem solved.

I will paint one project gray and the other aqua/turquoise.

Here is the color I have chosen for the aqua/turquoise:

Behr’s Jamaica Bay

and, the other project gray.

That’s fair, right?

I’ll be posting the gray color choice, once I make the selection.

Thank you to all that voted.

It was fun!

I can’t wait to show you my projects.
