I decided the kitchen/dining area of the house needed sprucing up a bit. Yesterday I painted the window frames and sills in pure white gloss. Till now they had been in an off white flat finish, but I've moved on from my flat phase and have decided that gloss is better on the woodwork. ( you can clean off grubby dog marks more easily.)
This morning we traipsed into town to get some tester pots of the colours we thought might look nice.
Anyway, when we got home I duly stirred the pots, got out my wee brush and painted test areas onto the wall. And what would you know? Most of them look pretty much like what's there already! One is too dark and one I thought I'd like seems to have a hint of salmon! ARGH! Then I got to thinking - the guy made up the testers, what if he didn't make them right? A couple really don't look like the colour charts...what to do ...what to do!?
Bottom one is too dark, I think? Third one from bottom has a pink tinge? Or am I imagining that?
