The Wrong Color

I repainted the kitchen yesterday.
I wasn't smart enough to think of taking a before picture
until I was half way through.
The good news is that everything got cleaned.
The bad news is that the color doesn't look this good in real life.
If you look at the reflection in the mirror,
you can see more of the color it actually is.
It's a BRIGHT celery green~
more like the moss that is in the first picture.
Needless to say, tomorrow morning 
I will be at the paint store bright and early.
I should have taken a major clue
when it required the extra-white base.
Every other color in the house has required
either the deep base or ultra-deep base.
I think I will try this formula with a deep base.
I will let you know how it works out.
At least I know what color I don't want now.
It's a good thing I like to paint.

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches


  1. That looks close to the color that my grandparents had in their old four-square.

    1. That's funny. My dad said he thought it looked old-fashioned. I think it looks like something a teenager would pick out. It's appalling to walk into it to get my coffee when I haven't had my coffee yet:)

    2. I guess you could switch to Irish coffee; that might turn the walls downright beautiful in your eyes!

  2. personally I love the colour! would be happy to have this on my wall

  3. Doesn't look bad in the pictures :) But, if it is the color you say then it would surely wake you up in the morning... A good thing you like to paint.
