After two weeks of painting different white tones in the attic and putting in a new very pale floor we ended up (after a people's vote) painting a wall in the living room in a bright lime green color. It turned out really well. It matters so much what brand of paint you choose. The old paint was a disaster and showed everything off but this new paint (chosen by my new best friends in the paint department store) just tricks the eye into thinking I spent hours covering up all the flaws including an old small people's door opening! When I in fact only spent a few minutes hiding a few nail holes.
