Dutch Boy Pronounces Your Bedroom Walls Green

© Dutch Boy
Dutch Boy calls this green Conifer.

This is a paint color that is not for everyone or every house. First, notice that we're showing you a room with extra-tall ceilings; this won't work as well in standard 8-foot tall rooms. Second, this is a boy's bedroom (but it could easily work in an office, den, etc., too).

Raise the chair rail to six feet, install beadboard underneath. The great value of this--for a boy's room--is that beadboard better resists the inevitable wallboard dings and scratches and accidents that result from boys and their friends.

Ah, boys. They are a blessing from heaven. But, but... Well, if you're a parent with a boy, I need say no more.

Who Makes This Paint?

The Boy! How ironic. Dutch Boy himself.
