That is exactly what I did. I'm not proud! Besides, just a couple of weeks ago, Karen was wanting to paint her bathroom a lavender color & we couldn't decide what shade it should be until I spotted her new steamer mop, which just happened to be the perfect shade of lavender we were looking for! And I wasn't proud then....I sent Karen in with her mop to tell them to "match it up".
So off I went to Neal Paint & Wallpaper, borrowed candle in hand. I'm sure that Duane & Eric, the friendly paint mixers, were just thrilled to see me walk in with a candle! But match it up they did, and I've been busy ever since, stripping border, sanding, scrubbing, taping off way too much woodwork, trimming primer, painting primer, trimming paint, painting paint....& I now realize that it's going to require one more coat.

My patient hubby just rolls his eyes when he hears me mumbling around about wanting to redo a room. He knows that one thing always leads to another & what should just take a day or two, ends up more like the project of the week.
I can't wait until it's finished. But I've found a couple of other problems! My curtains look tacky, the wall decor doesn't match or needs updating, & I don't think that pie safe is going to be allowed back in the room.
Hey, Bob the Builder....you had better get your hammer out & start on those shelves!
Hopefully, I can show you what "Westminster Gold" looks like in a few days. Has anyone noticed a golden glow coming from Carr Hill Road? It's just my dining room smiling...
