Our living room is painted a light cream color, but there was this small spot in the corner the previous owners left unpainted. FH’s solution is to get a slightly lighter color and pain the entire room, but the way our house flows, this would require not only the living room, but also the entry, dining room, stair area and upstairs hall. We have more money than time, so this would result in paying someone to do it. I can’t justify that kind of expense for a slightly lighter shade. I would like to do some painting in a few other rooms, but there is a chance we could end up moving for FH’s job (we don’t find out for 6 months), and FH is totally against painting anything else until that is fixed.
FH is working all day, so I found the paint (the previous owner left a lot of the leftover paint) and painted it. It’s still drying, but so far, it looks great! I am hoping he will be happy, but am worried he will just say I wasted my time and want to still repaint the slightly lighter color. My question is whether to bring it up to him, or just say nothing and wait until he notices? I don’t think he will notice quickly, since it isn’t a big difference, and if he doesn’t even notice it, is it worth painting half of the house? It also feels a little sneaky to not mention it. What do you think? Thanks for the insight ladies!
