Painting

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.
