I did some painting therapy this past weekend.

No, not interpretive painting or painting my feelings. Goodness gracious what would THAT look like? Can't even go there.


I finally FINALLY painted my master bedroom.

Our new construction house was painted decorator chosen custom colors before we purchased it. Better than stark white, that's for sure.

However, the reddish brown color painted on the window wall in the master bedroom was NOT my fave. Actually, I hated it. I LOVE me some red. I LOVE me some brown. Don't mix em together. Chocolate brown looked yucky with it. Red looked yucky with it. Finally I just gave up.

Until last weekend.

Husband rolled his eyes when he saw me get all twitchy and demanded a child-free afternoon to paint our bedroom. But he indulged me, and having finally chosen my scheme of sorts I rid myself of the reddish brown wall.

I chose a new color as an accent wall and I. LOVE. IT.


Here's the thing. I'm not quite done with the room, but let's have a guessing game of sorts while we all wait for the unveiling.

The accent wall paint color is called: Intense Marathon.

So, what do YOU think that color is???

Start guessing!


p.s. This contest with no prize is NOT OPEN to Megs, Laura, Joanie, Mom VG, Mom B or my hunny...or Bubbalu. Got it?

p.p.s. And don't even THINK about Googleing it. It doesn't even come up anyways. Cheaters.


  1. I'm going to say teal or turquoise. And then I'm going to google it, I can't resist, even if you tell me it won't come up. I must know... :)

  2. Wow. You really CAN'T Google it. Dang. :)

  3. I'm going to say like dark red. =)

  4. I didn't even think about googling it, however, once you suggested that I realized I could look up specific brands. Found it on the FIRST TRY! (He, he). Beautiful - BTW! You even helped me win another swagbuck :) Can't wait to see if I'm right, or just a weird fluke. Bring on the pictures!

  5. Intense Marathon, huh? I can't even begin to guess :) I am maybe thinking an aqua color. I don't know why, though :)

  6. Hmmm everyone is going with blue hues... and I was going to say an ocean water blue color, but now I just don't know!?

  7. it's gotta be a really dark red, like your cheeks after running a marathon?

  8. I'm thinking yellow. No explanation. Just thinking it:)

  9. I am going to guess a red (crimson red) color. For some reason, I had a vision of red when I saw the color's name

  10. Oh, A. I don't like this guessing game contest. Just show the pictures ;) Such suspense!


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
