Today I went to Home Depot to check out flooring materials and left with a hundred dollars worth of paint and painting supplies.
I've had this bug up my butt for months about the walls in my house - specifically my hallway. The off-white color just seemed too bland.
A couple of years ago there was a wall where I worked that was painted a pretty cool watermelon color, and I'd always told myself that I should paint some wall in my house with that color.
Well I tried. The paint, which looked very cool on the little "Ruby Ring" sample card I chose has ended up looking very very very red on my walls.
I mean, it really looks like crap, and I don't think that's solely due to the fact that I need to put another coat on.
I'll put that second coat on tomorrow and cross my fingers.
