Don’t you have buying paint and getting home and hating it?
Yep. Me too.
But I guarantee that’s not going to happen this time. Because, hands down, Sherwin Williams Rainwashed and Sea Salt are two of the prettiest, softest colors that never fail to disappoint.
I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with these colors. In fact, three of my rooms are painted these colors. Hopefully, stumbling upon these pic will help you to make a decision to use them, because they’re that fabulous!
Sherwin Williams Rainwashed
Rainwashed it probably my most favorite color of all times. This is what my bedroom looked liked prior to its total overhaul:
Soft, prettiness, right??! This is Sherwin Williams Rainwashed. AH-MAY-ZING……
Here’s another shot of Rainwashed in my master bedroom. Isn’t it such a light shade of turquoise blue-green?
It’s funny, but when you look at it on a color card, it looks nothing like what it does on your walls, depending on the time of day. It’s like the magician of paint colors. According to this swatch, it’s in the green family, but sorry–my walls say something different!
I Put Up My Old Crown Molding, Too
When I walk into my bedroom, it feels like an oasis!
I installed the crown molding myself (I wrote a 52-page step-by-step guide on how to put up your own crown molding like a novice). Right now, I’m offering it free to readers to download, but soon, it will be $9.97 so download it now while you can!
The Other Projects In My Bedroom
Sherwin Williams Sea Salt
This is another paint color that is a bit of a magician when on the walls.
But first….I have to admit that I’m a wee bit embarrassed to show you what my bathroom looked like…..A HOT MESS, you guys. Seriously. But I knew that Sea Salt would look amazing in this room. It has a calming effect, and looks good with shades of gray and white. Here’s what my master bathroom looked like before. In this room, it actually does look greenish:
What do you think? It looks like a very light sea-foam color. Excuse the horrible pics :). Cell phone pics suck!
But in my foyer….it looks more light-bluish/turquoise in the afternoon sun!
But in my foyer, it sometimes look a shade of blue, depending on the light. The color is very soothing!
You probably found this blog post because you’re researching Rainwashed or Sea Salt. Don’t worry. They’re great colors that make the walls feel airy and pretty. Sometimes they look greenish. Sometimes they look blue. Maybe turquoise. And sometimes you do feel nervous when you’re about to paint and you’re not quite sure what you’re going to get. But I love these colors so much; they never disappoint.
Even my kids love them ;).

If you want to check out Sea Salt in action, watch my video, where I’m demoing the Home Right EZ Twist paint stick. Maybe you can get a hint of what the paint looks like.
Sherwin Williams Window Pane
I can’t help but mention, I also love Sherwin Williams Window Pane, which is one color lighter on the same color card as Rainwashed (see above). It’s also a very turquoise paint color. I have used it in my reading room, and it’s just as beautiful and soft. And yes, that was a baby on my back. LOL
Same “yuck” beige in the reading room….
A gentle hint of greenish turquoise paint on the walls. Ahhhh….LOVE IT!
