Have you ever wondered what paint looks like when it gets really cold? I didn’t think so. But I found out when I opened a new can that had been stored in our cold garage for the past couple of days. I can think of a lot of things that this reminds me of. Most of them are unmentionable. And not very good for painting. Well, at least not to anyone over the age of 2.
You may have noticed that I mentioned moving in the previous post. Well, when you are moving out of your home, you must get it ready, so a painting we will go. When we bought this place, it had sort of a rainbow look going for it, which you can see from the top row of colors below. While we enjoyed the wide array, we wanted a more subdued look, so over time we have changed the colors to be more calming and spa like. Hence the bottom row of colors, many of which just need touched up. The rest of the rooms in the house are just plain flat white paint and we will also be covering up those at some point.

You may have noticed that the previous owners had some similar paint brand taste to us, but on our recent trip to the Home Depot, we found out that our favorite, Ralph Lauren, will be no more come February. Booooo. So we got what we needed to do the touch ups, but we still need to figure out what brand/colors to paint the other rooms left in the house that have remained boring white for the past 3 years. Any ideas?
