So, I think I have touched on this topic before, but I tend to make paint selection an incredibly complicated process. I start with taping lots of large samples to the walls. I let them hang on the walls for a few days. I look at them at different times of day, different weather conditions, even different moods.
Then I start the process of the elimination. The colors that just catch me off guard. Offend me in the morning. To harsh against the woodwork. Doesn’t create a good flow from the other room. It will make the room too dark. Blah, blah, blah.
When I get down to 2-3 colors, I then start moving the “finalists” to different places in the room and do a shorter version of the same process. So, needless to say, this from start to finish, it can take me a couple of weeks to finally settle on a color.
I didn’t even include what happens when company comes over!! I always do appreciate the insight.
Now, knowing how much I stress and fret over a color choice, what I am about to say will blow your mind.
I took a huge chance yesterday when I bought two gallons of mistint from Lowe’s. So, my OCD color selection process was totally overrode by my thriftiness! Each gallon was on sale for $10 and this was their top of the line paint and primer!! How could I pass that up???
Now, here’s the kicker. It’s dark green. I mean…DARK green. So, this could work out to be amazing, but it could also be one the worse decisions I have ever made. I will be adding pictures of it…when it’s up on the walls! Surprise will be…where will I put it!
