I am an artist, yet picking paint for my walls does not come easy. For one, I always pick a color that screams at me when I get it on the wall.
Secondly, I have to find a color I won’t get tired of too quickly. I picked a pretty blue color and bought two buckets last fall. Just a few weeks ago I opened the paint and put some on the wall. It S C R E A M E D at me!! It was almost scary! It was not the color you would have in a room you actually SLEEP in.! Ha!
I decided I had nothing to lose so I poured both buckets into one big 5 gallon bucket. Then I started pouring some of my old paint into the bucket to see if I could find a color I could live with. I have nearly 5 gallons of what I call, Bluish Greenish Purplish La La.
NO, I am not putting in on the wall. I could tell that I would tire of it within only a few weeks. Instead, I went to the store and bought “Blue Lagoon”. My daughter just painted her bedroom this color. It passed the WOW test. The WOW test is when you walk into a room and go, “WOW”.
So, that is the end of my story!
Oh NO! I just remembered I bought some pale blue for my ceiling… I sure hope it matches Blue Lagoon!!!
