As long as they don't charge for that service, Muduh, I may just have them mix the colors for me. I definitely wouldn't be mixing a color in the 5-gal bucket - I will be using the cream to repaint some walls. I'll probably just buy smaller buckets to do the other colors in.Originally Posted by Muduh
Because the paint is cream (vs. white), I'm buying the green bathroom paint at Lowe's. In the other rooms (at this point, the kitchen and dining room, as well as one wall in the entryway), I'm using colors all within the same family: gold on one kitchen wall, yellow on the rest of the kitchen and the dining room and a kind of siena/rust on the entryway (it's only about 3 feet wide, so it can handle the dark color without making it seem like a cave - I like light, bright colors). Those earth tone-ish colors can be mixed using the free paint. I should mention that my kitchen is done in bright colors, with Mexican pottery and sepape fabric on the wall, so the bright colors will work well.
I'm leaning toward the cream on the ceiling. It would just be easier not to have to tape it off, you know? The bathroom color is light, but not super-light. I've already taped up pieces of paper in the color I want on three walls in the bathroom, just to make sure it's not going to be too dark!
How sad is it that I am this excited about painting!?
