In the meantime, I decided to start painting my office and I ended up finishing it. Since I was painting over tan, it looked scary at first, but now that its done we both love it. The lighting isn't so great in this picture, but the color is like a Tiffany box bluish turquoise.
I still have quite a bit to do including hanging shelves and possibly getting a large bookcase (still undecided) but I'll share the results once I'm done. My plan is to have both projects completely finished before the end of the month which is fast approaching.
P.S. I'm sure there will be tan lovers that will give me the old, "I liked it better before." but that's OK! I know its not for everyone. I know people out there like the sort of "model home tan" but I'm just not one of them.
