Back to the hot topic of PAINT! I know you’re all sitting at the edge of your seat in great anticipation to know this important and life-altering news… I changed the green paint!
I know I just lost a bunch of readers as I am not writing a political or religious piece this time… just kidding! I know who my real friends are and what they’re really interested in. ME! And what’s going on in my day-to-day.
We went back to Glidden (paint store) right after picking up the kids from school. They said we can lighten our yellow paint. We bought a gallon of plain old white paint and that should do the trick. We (I mean my hubby) will add a bit of white at a time until it’s the colour I like. With the green… or “Pickle” green as my sis-in-law stated last night at our family dinner/birthday party for my other sis-in-law… The colour was disliked by all. I can’t believe I chose that colour! The old green was re-tinted, it’s not the perfect match to my favourite green, “Herb de Provincial” by Benjamin Moore but it will have to do… for now. My hubby is also crossing his fingers that this works as he is not in the mood to re-repaint. Have I mentioned that I love the red? I do. I love it! It’s called “Rapture” — I even love the name.
My camera’s batteries are dead and I can’t find the recharger, pictures will have to wait. I want to be happy with the paint first anyways.
Next time I will hire a decorater and a painter…
** UPDATE **
The new green is great, more earthy and less food related. The cream walls are actually cream and not post-it note yellow. Mixing the paints worked and my hubby is happy he doesn’t have to re-repaint! For those coming tonight to ladies group, you’ll get a sneak peak and if you have snack food could you bring it too… thanks!
