I swear I am going to write about (and giveaway) the sweet award Janel sent me last week, but I have to put it off for just one more day!

Here's the thing: Months before we moved back here I was reading Nester's blog and she wrote about a paint color called Tobacco Road. Turns out the color had been discontinued, but I emailed Nester, and sure enough she just happened to have the secret Tobacco Road code written on a paint can lid she had from 5 years ago. This girl is amazing!
Anyway, we got the paint mixed and I slapped a bit on the wall, and I hated it.
Until that little slap of paint started to grow on me, and after two weeks I realized that the Nester knows of what she speaks.
So, today I recruited The Girl to help me paint the foyer. Well the bottom half of the foyer. When we moved into this house the original paint was a pretty yellow (pictured above). Below is the fruit of today's labor.
Except I'm not sure I am done.
I had mentioned to The Mister that Tobacco Road had grown on me so much that I was thinking about painting the whole wall, leaving the trim white.
He wasn't sold. Change is hard on that sweet guy.
But the TR looks so good on the bottom I think it needs it on top too. What do you think?
Here is my dilemma, if I paint the top portion of the foyer TR what about the portion up the stairwell?
See the wall behind the railing and the badly spelled seasonal decoration? Technically is that part of the foyer? Do I paint that TR too?
And that wall leads up to the hallway. Do I paint that too?
This is the shot looking down the stair way. See those big ominous white walls...what about those?
What do you think?
