Wishy-washy. Remember the vote on the bathroom walls? Remember the decision? Dark eggplant with sparkles? Me, too. Well, reality set in at the H*me Dep*t last night when I went to purchase my paint. First.
A. I need to prime no matter what color I paint it because it’s a high-humidity location.
2. I would need at least 2 coats of the eggplant. I’m not into that because of the amount of work and the fact that it would take primer plus to cover it when I was either sick of it or done with it.
C. Sometimes I don’t like reality.
But, I know you remember my grown-up self. She’s responsible and smart and filled with good common sense. So, after a minor silent tantrum I changed my paint color.
But, at least for the sake of argument I will tell you this is called Periwinkle Bud and was not in the store when I last checked. Oh, I still intend to do the crystal spirals because I think they will be beautiful even if they aren’t quite as dramatic on the lighter color. And, I was able to buy primer/paint combined. It’s a win/win situation, isn’t it?
I’m usually more random on Wednesday, but I wanted to share my paint choice with you right away in hopes that it forces my sorry butt into action. I am no longer walking away without looking at the wall. I am now looking at it and screwing my eyes up real tight to see if it really needs another coat of mud. When I look at it that way, it doesn’t. I wonder if the tape will would show through the paint?
Well, you have a wonderful Wednesay!! Here is my soundtrack for the day. Another Otis Redding track with “Can’t Shake You Loose”
Have a wonderful Humpty Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
