DH has painted one wall of our bedroom bright fucking yellow. This is grounds for divorce right?

I hate feature walls.
It hurts my eyes.
I like white.
And grey. Grey is nice.

AIBU?

DH painted one of our grey walls bright yellow on a whim. I feel your pain.

It's certainly grounds for a frogmarch to B&Q and a day's interment in your bedroom with:

1. a pot of grey paint
2. brushes and rollers
3. the feature wall, with 'PAINT THIS GREY' scrawled over the yellow with grey marker pen.

However, I like yellow. So I would probably have been pleased...does depend on the yellow though.

That is a horrific eyesore. Is it a bedroom wall?

WorraLiberty Sat 23-Aug-14 11:44:03

Was there absolutely no discussion beforehand?

firesidechat Sat 23-Aug-14 11:45:46

Didn't he consult you first? Having said that it takes about a year to decide on paint colours in our house. Consultation ad nauseam.

Fortunately my husband loathes yellow with a passion. Is it very bright?

Trills Sat 23-Aug-14 11:45:48

Did he manage to move furniture and paint the wall all while you were out? That's pretty efficient.

Good thing he's a quick worker, he's got a bit of painting to do!

LatteLoverLovesLattes Sat 23-Aug-14 11:48:43

He painted the wall without discussing it with you?

Feck that for a game of soldiers!

Oh well, I'm sure the grey will work well over the top and it shouldn't take him too long grin

Thebodyloveschocolateandwine Sat 23-Aug-14 11:52:13

Oh I love yellow so think it sounds nice.

Grey walls? Sounds like a cave. grin

RJnomore Sat 23-Aug-14 11:52:31

Maybe he doesn't like grey?

Wonc Sat 23-Aug-14 11:52:45

Yes. It IS a horrific eyesore.

I will take a photo when I can find my sunglasses.

Conversation went like this:
Fuckwit with no taste: So what colour would you like?
Me: White
Fuckwith with no taste: All white?
Me: Yep

Then when I came home:
DD: Dad bought white paint
Me: Great
DD: And yellow
Me: You're joking
DD: No
Me: You are joking?
DD: No
Me: Please tell me you are joking

Maybe the 2 of you should talk about your colour scheme. He clearly doesn't like your ideas any more than you like his.

Wonc Sat 23-Aug-14 11:55:26

Oh did I mention our floors are bamboo - so yellow ish?

He also managed to pick the one colour to clash completely with our ensuite, which is cream.

It is hideous.

Not a problem if you are from Brazil!

Wonc Sat 23-Aug-14 11:59:42

He said he thought I would like it because my iPhone is yellow hmm.

LatteLoverLovesLattes Sat 23-Aug-14 12:01:06

Fuckwit with no taste grin

He would be Now Very Busy Repainting Fuckwit if he lived here grin

Idiot.

If it wasn't what he wanted he should have said so not just done what he wanted!

I need to see the shade of yellow first, but assuming it's a nice one, I'd like it. A nice yellow is really cheerful. It'd be nice to wake up to every day.

don't hurt me. grin

Deverethemuzzler Sat 23-Aug-14 12:01:32

I love yellow.
No WAY would I have it my bedroom though.

That is just MAD.

Deverethemuzzler Sat 23-Aug-14 12:02:09

His logic makes him sound like my OH.

But my OH is downstairs.

So it can't be him.

<goes to check>

I used to love yellow and still think it looks amazing in a Georgian house.

In an 80's house, not so much

Iwasinamandbunit Sat 23-Aug-14 12:02:55

White and yellow you say.

Must be like sitting in a fried egg

Vitalstatistix Sat 23-Aug-14 12:03:03

What colour's yours D? Mine's green. Which is relaxing but dull.

Wonc Sat 23-Aug-14 12:06:41

He's in there at the moment moving furniture, so I can't take a photo until he is done incase he thinks I am giving it tacit approval.

I am not.

RedToothBrush Sat 23-Aug-14 12:08:52

I was going to say YABU as I love bright yellow.

Then you said your floors are bamboo and you have a cream ensuite.

Not good.

enormouse Sat 23-Aug-14 12:11:28

Our entire (rented) house is bloody yellow. It's relentlessly cheerful.

I hate it.
