My sister kindly provided me with a quart of paint. The label said is was some kind of "chili" color.
What do you think?? Have you EVER seen this color of chili EVER IN YOUR LIFE??
OK, so maybe it's hard to see. Let's just say that the color was something like Pepto-Bismol mixed with grape juice. I kept painting...and painting...and painting...hoping it would improve with more coats.
Finally I screwed up my courage to call my sister: "Have you ever actually used this paint on anything?"
"Well...no," she replied. "Is it awful??"
"Yes!! Truly, utterly, unbearably horrible! Please, allow me to choose a new color of red for you!"
She agreed. (Thank heavens.)
I used the same red that I used on this chest of drawers. I will say that I am NOT a fan of Glidden paint...it seriously took at least six coats of paint to cover. Then I applied a little black glaze, and now...
It matches perfectly!
It's fun to see a piece from home get a new life.
