Not cool. So today I repainted all the trim in the bed and bathroom to match the right Dragon's Breath color. Annoying but necessary and now done. BAM.
Here's a side-by-side comparison. It's not a huge deal but it would have driven me crazy had I left it.
And the same thing happened in the dining room. Monday I was on a roll and decided to get some more annoying painting done--we had rolled the walls with Behr's Swiss Coffee (a delicious creamy white color) and Mitch painted the ceiling with BM ceiling paint. All that needed to be done was the tops of the walls (with the Swiss Coffee). Well what I thought was the right Swiss Coffee ended up being the wrong one:( I forgot that we had the Behr Swiss Coffee matched to Ben Moore paint. So the same thing happened--completely different color. (If you look real hard, you can see the difference.)
It's no wonder I got things confused. This is all the Swiss Coffee paint we have. Four different cans and two different finishes (semi-gloss and eggshell). I used the little can and should have used the Ben Moore gallon. Ugh.
So the moral of the story: don't mix brands!
I still have to touch up the dining room but at least the bedroom and bathroom are done. Oh and I wanted to show you guys an update on the bedroom floor. Mitch started laying the vinyl planks on Mon. and is planning on getting a bunch done this evening. But here's the progress. I'm loving how they're looking!
I love that they're vinyl (i.e. easy to install) yet still have a nice texture to them. This was pretty much the only route we could go since the flooring is going right on top of concrete (remember--this used to be a garage!) It's such an economical choice too. The planks were only .79 cent/sq ft. A nice jute rug will sit on top of this part of the room (under the bed) for even more texture.
Can't wait to show you more!
Have you completed an annoying project of your own lately? Or maybe you have one looming over your head still? I want to hear about it! Maybe together we can knock off the annoying projects that need to get done:)
