Wild Sage

Wild Sage, will you accept this rose?  Last weekend I told you I was jonesing* to repaint my bathroom.      Last night I got 'er done.  Not a lot of wall space but it was a dark color so it needed 3 coats.  I present to you, Wild Sage (which I think could either be the name of a laundry detergent, a stripper or an awesome green paint color).

My plan for this section of wall is a gallery of mismatched frames.  I decided to use 3M velcro strips rather than put more holes in the wall because I've heard they're easier to hang and adjust.  I have to wait 7 days after fresh paint before I can hang them so I'm going to be patient.  Ok so maybe the truth is I said 'screw the 7 day wait' and attempted to put them up 15 hours after I painted the room and they crashed to the ground, somehow not now I wait the 7 days.

*Fun fact I just googled what 'jonesing' meant because it is a word my mom uses often.  Turns out it originated from heroin addicts in "Jones Alley" NYC in the 60's wanting a hit.  Geez mom.


  1. Love this color - is it a Behr color? It looks great in the bathroom with the tile and the wood of the mirror and cabinet. Happy blogiversary!

    1. Thanks Holly! Yes it is Behr. I love their paint and primer in one :)
