Just not that one…
…or that one….
hmmm…I don’t like that one either.
Such is the story of my life the last few days! I’m trying to pick a light brown paint color for the main bathroom in the house. It is disastrous. I thought I finally had something. I got the paint. I took it home. I opened it up to test it on the walls. Oh man. This was not brown. This was orange! I hate orange. Never mind that Bethany likes it. I do not.
So, back to the paint store. Lucky for me my dad works there and I know some people. We tried to fix the paint. We added brown. That was a little better. Then we added more brown. Definitely less orange, but not dark enough. So we added some black. That was OK so we added more black and that is where things went very, very wrong. When we opened it up, it was gray. It was the color of gray caulk. Or weather-stripping. That is what I would have named it if I could have. Gray caulk weather-stripping.
So the guy says, “Let’s start over.” Great! Because I do not like paint color “Gray caulk weather-stripping.” We head over to the paint chips. But now I have NO idea whatsoever. What is the right color brown? Who knew there were so many browns in the world? So, now this is sitting on my bathroom counter.
At the moment I’m leaning towards something called “Summer Sands.” Sounds nice, right? Yeah. Except when I take it home it’ll probably look more like “mud cave.”
PotD for Monday:
We had our GEMS Father/Daughter Night and the plan for the evening was to do yardwork for people in our church and to spread bark around the flower beds at church. Sounds great, right? Yes! And despite the POURING DOWN RAIN and the THUNDERSTORMS, everyone smiled and worked and had a great time!
PotD for Tuesday:
Yes, I messed with this in PSE…just trying some things out. Ed & Sarah went on a date to the orchestra concert at school. They had a good time!
If any of you feel less color-challenged than I am, come on over. You can pick my brown.
