A Bright, Bright Sunshiny Day!

Somehow, I have a six (!!!) year old son. Part of his birthday present was having his new bedroom be the first room at the Einsel House to be painted. This boy has loved the color yellow right from the start.

We told him he could pick whichever color he wanted for his bedroom walls. His response - "Great!" ...(pause)... "But they're all yellow. I want to use them all!" Then he suggested we do a rainbow using all the different shades of yellow! Thankfully, we eventually got him to pick just one color.

And it started going on the walls:

Until the whole room was bright and sunny!

So thank you Neil for the sunshine you bring! I loved seeing your color go over those walls, and I loved even more seeing your smile when you walked into your room yesterday. : )

A little sunshine is a wonderful thing, especially when it looks like this outside:

  1. What's the name of the color you decided on? I ask because those paint chips look exactly like the ones I had taped all over my kitchen walls. I like yellow, too. :)

  2. that is so sweet!!! I love the yellow with the wood work too!!! steps closer to you guys being able to live in your new home!!!

  3. Jayne - It's called Colonial Yellow. It's a Walmart color, but we had it matched by a local paint store. It would be a lovely color for a kitchen!

    Jennie - Thanks! (I can't wait to get the plastic off the woodwork this weekend!)

  4. Wow! 6! I love how the yellow looks in his room...
