Do you ever have a week where you feel like you were super busy, yet have little to show for it? That’s me this week. My week has evolved around my bathroom vanity and my indecision about the paint color. I shared a peek at it last week, and was hoping to share the finished product with you this week. But then, I couldn’t shake off the fact that I wasn’t completely sold on the paint color. I was looking for a soft black, but instead, got a shade of gray.
I thought maybe another coat of paint would do the trick, but after living with it and looking at it for awhile, I knew it would bug me if I didn’t change it. Especially since I’m looking at adding black through different accessories. My husband was sure to show me that it wasn’t black, by holding up a pair of black dress socks against it. He’s a helper like that.
I thought maybe I’d change my mind once I got the doors and drawers back in place, and had knocked out some serious progress assembly-line style over the weekend when we had some glorious weather. I was feeling confident.
Nope. Definitely too gray.
I went back to the paint store on Monday to have my paint guy (aka The Paint Whisperer) remix the paint to give it a black hue. Unfortunately, he was out sick. So yesterday I finally got the paint color tweaked and tested it out.
Eureka! We have a winner!
Here you can see the difference between the old shade (right) and the new shade (left). I feel better now.
So, I’m sorry I don’t have more to report to you this week. This paint fail was a temporary setback. Moving forward this week!
