Picking Paint

There’s a secret you should know about me. I don’t pick out paint colors. I have a general idea of the color I want – some shade of pink, a shade of blue. But really, I buy paint for the name. I could spend hours walking through the paint section at Lowe’s, pulling out the color card just to find the perfect name. Today, I picked out Valspar’s Birch White, Sky Blue, Spring Linen, and Katydid. I especially love the name Katydid. I have furniture piled high in the garage just begging to be painted these colors.

  1. I never even pay attention to the names! Someone asked me once, and I had to look it up, what the name of the paint was in our bedroom. I told her it's called "Good Times" and she thought that was so funny! I was embarrassed.


Always love to hear from you!
