Have you ever made a huge mistake with paint color?
I could not get over that purple!! It sounded like a good idea at the time, and many fellow fb friends seemed to think it would be awesome! So I did it.
I painted my booth Aubgergine (dark purple). It was so dark and dreary in my booth, it had to be changed.
Sooo... after a couple of weeks whining and losing sleep over it, I repainted!!!
I bet I sleep good tonight!!!
It's much brighter and shabbier. Even the mall owner appreciates me going light.
What a relief!! But the money to fix this teeny space wasn't cheap! The paint wasn't just a few dollars. I had to buy Kilz to cover the paint! And I had to do it heavily. Then I was recommended to buy a really good paint to ensure good coverage. Boy am I glad I listened. I still needed to go over it here and there with a second coat.
Tip #1 - don't try to rush a primer. If you start to roll over it too soon, you will lift it all off the wall!
Tip #2 - Don't paint a heavy dark color in a very small space.
I do have contrast in my booth, there is a huge steel gray door and lots of chippy bricks painted with about 100 years of paint.
See the bricks? I love them. So I did a little teensy weensy wall treatment with paper and cut outs. Rubbed plaster and paint over them to make them look like they've been there just as long.
Meet my newest treasure - Chippy Hoosier. I love her!!! And she looks beautiful against my newly painted walls.
Oh, the color of my paint?? It's Valspar - "Cream in my Coffee" how perfect is that right!!??
And here's my newest fun seller. My Little Lambie Pillow. Just right for Spring and Easter right??
Tootles for now!!
