The hubs, who has never put any sort of input on a paint color to date, said that he would prefer Cucumber Crush. That made up my mind since he actually cared about the color choice.
Well... I started painting and thought that the color was very bright. I figured that a second coat would help darken it up a bit, since I could still see that terrible maroon through the first coat.
It still looks too bright to me. I don't know. The second coat did help a bit, but I was wanting something... warmer, I guess. I've only done about a forth of the room because I wanted to see what it looked like after a second coat before deciding if I should keep painting the whole room.
The hubs and I have also talked about putting a chair rail or some wainscoting in this room, so that might help make it less bright. If we go with the chair rail, I was thinking we could paint the lower portion of the wall in the shade under Cucumber Crush, which is Rockwood Jade.
