Another “Oopsie” that worked out well (kind of like Haley!)

August 25, 2008

I’ve been thinking that the satin version of my bathroom paint color might be too dark in my bedroom.  This weekend I was watching HGTV (shocking, yes, I know) and I saw someone custom mixing paint.  I was relieved to think that the gallon I bought for my bedroom might not be a total loss:  mix in some white and lighten it up.

So I just pulled out the can to make a test spot on the wall and I noticed that the little color smear on the top of the can looked awfully light.  I didn’t think I pulled the right can from the pile.  Then I pulled out the bathroom paint color and saw that it was much darker.  Hmmm… what’s going on here?

When I got the bedroom color I just told them “Gentle Rain” and when wet it looked right.  Well, funny enough the bathroom is actually “Downpour”.  Ummm, close but not the same 😛 My mistake in the name turned out to be EXACTLY what I was wishing I had!  HAHAHA

Now that I see a patch of it on a swath of wide open wall I am getting motivated!

(Riiiiiight… haven’t we heard this before?)
