I try to get even small discounts and bargains when I can. When I didn’t have enough of the conservatory wall color to finish the attached bathroom, I decided to use a slightly lighter and brighter shade of green.
Last week I bought a gallon of Valspar paint at my local Ace hardware for $27 I thought I could save a couple of dollars by buying it at Lowes.
I forgot to ask before the paint counter attendant mixed the paint “how much?” Guess how much. $45 much. Such much. YIKES! When am I going to learn?
Today I’m going to use that newly purchased gallon of paint to cover both the walls and ceiling of the conservatory bathroom.
The shower walls and backsplash will be covered in Snow Frost glass subway tile so it shouldn’t look like a little green box.
In contrast to the bright conservatory, the bathroom has only one small round window to supply natural light so the lighter color should both coordinate and brighten the room.
What lesson have you learned and then forgot at an inconvenient time?
