I love projects. And I've been doing a little
re-decorating on my house. I had hung a bunch of molding and needed some paint.
I took a fabric swatch of a subtle, creamy-yellow that I liked with me to the Home Depot and picked out my color of paint. When I asked them to make it, they said it would be too dark and I wouldn't like it. They encouraged me to get two shades lighter.
On my wall, it almost looked white. I went back and asked them to put more pigment in the paint. They said, "The bucket is too full and I'll have to pour out some paint to fit the added pigment."
They told me they could only do it if I bought a container to put the excess paint in and a spout to pour it out through. I was pretty annoyed at this point, because they're the ones who'd told me not to buy the color I originally wanted.
I bought the container and spout anyway. But the spout gave way and the bucket of paint spilled all over their counter, their floor, and my favorite green shirt. What a nightmare!
The color they made looked like a greenish-dijon mustard. Yikes! I ended up having to buy the original color I wanted in the first place.
Now I have a ton of puke-colored yellow paint and no use for it. My kids suggested building a chicken coop and getting chicks.
I could paint fifty chicken coops with the amount
of paint I have. Ughh.
