Take It On Tuesday: The Kitchen Has Been Painted a Beautiful Shade of BLUE!!!

It is Take It On Tuesday and the kitchen has been painted a beautiful shade of blue!

I call it “On the SPot Blue.”

I wonder why…

It took the better part of the weekend. And we had an unfortunate hiccup with the color (the tinted primer was a shade of blue I loved, but the paint was not a blue I loved… so the husband went back to Home Depot and they had to make a new color recipe (what do they call that anyway?)… But it all worked out and we only lost time painting one extra coat due to the mix-up. or two.

Actually, we had to do 2 extra coats of paint due to the lighter color debacle.

These two cans (pictured below) hold the same color (same-ish)… but look closely. The primer in the top pic, the plain-old-paint in the second. The numbers are COMPLETELY different. True, their bases are different, but when they used the numbers from the primer can in the 2400 base… we got a MUCH lighter and colder-looking blue. The second picture is the formula for the blue we wanted based on the color you see in the top picutre.

I’m over explaining. I don’t think I even understand anymore.

First world problems.

Now I just need to get a few pictures hung, and get going with my “vision” for the chalkboard painted wall. That wall has a little work yet to be done. It has to set, and I have to cover it in chalk, and wipe it down, and let it set, etc… Maybe by February we will get a peek at that “vision”.

I have a feeling my “vision” isn’t quite letting me see how much chalk dust is going to drive me bonkers.

Live and learn.

Now. What am I going to take on next week…

    Okay… I want my kitchen that color! 🙂 I guess I’ll have to send my husband to Home Depot to “cook” it up.

    Hi Jen……… love your ‘spot’ on painting the kitchen. Wish I could see the real color blue you chose. Looking too for a blue (kind turqoise, grayish) to bring out same shade as in new living room furniture. Want to do at least an accent wall in darker shade of same.
    Love the note your dad left you…..sounds like something he’d do…..Hope he is recovering and almost back to normal (well, his normal) !

    Hi to all………I’ll stay tuned. Thanks for some chuckles.
