I meant to post this on Friday but.... life kind of happened. Here are the codes to the paint colors I used in my hallway. The darkest color (wall color) is a custom tint but the way I did it was by spraying Krylon's Almond spray paint on to a piece of white paper. Then they color matched it for me at Home Depot. The trim color (which it the trim and door color for most of the house) Is a custom tint doing the same thing but with Rustoleum's Heirloom White. The polka dot color is a mix of the Almond and the Heirloom White. In other words, my two favorite neutrals had a baby! I had these mixed in Behr paint. The wall color and trim are semi-gloss but the polka dots are in a flat paint. So not only are they tone on tone but they have a different finish which I LOVE. It is such a cool affect.
While I was painting the dots I had a cool idea. I was halfway done so I didn't do it, but I thought I would pass it along in case anyone was interested. What if you did the polka dots in ombre??? You could start out with a heavier contrast at the bottom of the wall and by the time you got to the top you could barely see the dots at all! Wouldn't that be awesome? If anyone that lives near me wants to try it out I have the stencil you can use ;)
Well, happy Monday! I hope you have a great day and I will see you back here tomorrow for this weeks linky.

What a smart idea to have favorite spray paint colors color matched! Thanks for sharing.
I LOVE the polka dot hallway! I love using neutral tones to accent my walls!
This is so great! I've been wanting to paint our bedroom in a neutral but didn't want cream, white, taupe, etc. & also wanted something tone on tone to add some interest. This is perfect! Love the dots! So awesome! (Gathering all my ideas for all the projects I plan to rope my daughter into helping me with this summer. This is for sure on the list!)
Very pretty! I LOVE the polka dots!
Very cool! I like it very much! And your plants and planters! The picture frame! Wonderful!
I love this... A neat idea of the empty frame adds so much with such a little.
Holy awesome! I love the polka dots and I super duper love the shade!
Have a great week!
