During our visit to Home Depot, we bought all of the supplies we're going to use to refinish The Babe's dresser, including the much debated paint. Before we left the house, though, I literally snagged a few paint samples out of my stash, threw them up on the wall, and went with the one The Babe touched first. How's that for throwing caution and paint chips to the wind? I had just been struggling with the decision so much and finally decided that any action was better than inaction.
The Babe landed on the Sweet Mustard paint chip and soon thereafter Sweet Mustard landed on our driveway. SIGH.
I could write a full tutorial on how I cleaned up the mess, but I'll spare you. Just know it wasn't pleasant and if any neighbors witnessed the spectacle, I'm sure they had a good laugh. Evidently, my moaning and groaning also attracted buzzards because they were flying overhead as I cleaned up the mess. Maybe they thought I was going to die?
Let's just hope the painting of the dresser goes a smidge better than getting the paint out of the car. Wish me lots of luck.
PS - When I gave the paint chip to my "guy" at Home Depot, he said, "WOW, that's bright". I yanked the chip back and headed over to the wall o'chips to debate it again. But then The Babe started fussing and I remembered my mantra...any action is better than inaction. Courageously, I handed it back to him and said, "mix it up"! The whole way home I stressed the choice, but I actually decided I liked the color when I saw it on the concrete. I think it will look great! Now, let's just get it on the dresser. SOON-ISH.
