I took a photo of the mostly-empty box room, before I started any painting. That was Monday, I think...? Yes, it must have been, because I painted it white yesterday.
I looked at the photo on Monday, before I started with the white paint, and I had to do a double take. I really liked the shade of yellow. It was a pleasant, spring, pale, yellow. Why on earth was I repainting the room?
I was sure that the yellow in the room was a really deep yellow, I was sure it wasn't anything like the colour in my photo.
I went upstairs and compared the actual colour of the room to the colour that the camera showed me.
|I really like this yellow. The camera lies, it's nothing like the real thing!|
|This is more what the colour on the walls actually looks like|
Even now I can hear that little voice "the paint you've bought will come in handy for touching up the other rooms.... buy the colour you really want".
I was about to write that I'd dismissed that idea.
But I haven't.
I don't want to end up with the worst of all worlds, where I repaint the room in the aqua, and then decide to paint it yellow.
