I love painting. I think it’s so much fun to transform a room with different colors and even if the change isn’t a huge one, it still looks fresh and new. A bunch of years ago we bought a copper colored sofa and I asked the salesperson at the store what color he would paint the room where this sofa would be. He said navy blue. I couldn’t imagine it and when I went to the paint store and bought paint, it certainly wasn’t navy blue. It’s a large room and I had painted half of it before I knew the color was wrong. I went back, chose another color and started again. Still wrong. Seven times I did this, seven gallons of paint purchased– and none of them were right. I remembered the man’s advice, finally bought a color called “Motor City Blue” and voila — perfect. Most expensive paint job ever. I have since discovered that it’s possible to buy paint in sampler sizes. And that sales people at furniture stores really do know color.
