But when we were at Home Depot a couple weekends ago, I went to the paint counter and looked for their discounted "oops" paint. When someone doesn't pick up their paint, or it turns out the wrong color, or they needed exterior and forgot to say so, or whatever, they discount it for.. wait for it... $5. Yes, $5 for a gallon of paint. I don't know if Lowe's or smaller stores have an "oops" section, but if you need paint it's definitely worth looking. And even if the color doesn't turn out exactly right- it is only $5.
So Adam and I looked through, and weeded through the poo-browns and salmon pinks, and found two prospects.
Grey for the bedroom.
I'm hoping it looks cohesive in the color scheme of the rest of the house, so I made a mock up.

We also found a slate blue/grey for the shutters. I think it will go well with the newly painted red door.
I have never painted with Glidden before (had always bought Behr) but it is still a highly rated paint. I saved over $20 for each gallon of paint. My dad is supposed to come this weekend and help paint the shutters, and hopefully I can get started on the guest room as well.
