Confession: I have had a row of paint swatches taped to the side of my kitchen cabinets for well over 6 months. Have you ever done that? Taping up little swatches of color was my idea to try and inspire me to pick a color. It hasn't really worked. I mean, it's really hard to visualize exactly what the color will look like when it's all up - and if you hate it then you have to start all over again. Which is exactly why they're still there, waiting for me to just pick a color already! Since I can paint it all in about 2 hours (maybe less) with a quart of paint (that's like $10?), you'd think that I could just jump in. But the weird part of my brain that craves perfection (and is never properly fed) just won't let me take that leap.
