Am I the only one who feels like those excited homeowners on Trading Spaces when you open a new can of paint? The paint color reveal when they opened the lids was always one of my favorite parts of the show. . .
So, I opened the quart of Castile (by Olympic) that I bought earlier this week and started slapping samples on our bedroom walls before my husband got home from work.
The first picture is right after I painted it, and it was definitely more blue than I expected. The second picture shows it an hour later, after it dried a little darker. I’m still undecided. Our bedroom is a pretty big room, so it’s going to be a lot of blue. All or nothing, I suppose.
The thing that scares me most? My husband actually noticed the color when he got home. (This doesn’t happen often.) His reaction? “Whooo, that’s blue!” Uh-oh. Then he followed it with the disclaimer he always makes. “But, you know best. Whatever you think.” Yep, that’s why it works :)
Have a great weekend. And, don’t hold your breath for a blue bedroom grand reveal on Monday. You know I could have these swatches on my wall until Summer.
