I am kinda embarrassed to tell you that I paid $50 for a gallon of paint, and that was with a $5 off coupon! The nice lady at the paint store told me about this new Benjamin Moore paint that goes on matte, but is guaranteed to stand up against steamy, damp bathrooms.
I'll take it!
And it was like butter. I knew it would be for that price. What's another 50 bucks when you have already spent thousands (and 5 months) on a bathroom remodel (that still has a long way to go)?
Now, I am no amateur when it comes painting. I did my color research with paint chips, painting sample colors on all four walls, and observing how the paint changes in the light.
Then how come when I open the door to my bathroom I feel like I am submerged in the deep end of a swimming pool? It is shockingly greenish-blue. What happened? Every time my husband opens the door he says, "Wow." And not in a good way.
But I paid a lot of money for that buttery can of paint and I am not changing it, by God! On the bright side, it will really wake you up in the morning. And maybe my husband won't want to take those leisurely dumps any more--he'll want to get out of their quick before the walls give him a headache.Hopefully it will tone down once we get the vanity and mirrors in there. It'll be fine, right?
Until then, I am keeping the door closed.
