Have you ever had a project that you needed the perfect shade of white paint for…
and picked up samples and taped them up on your wall
and stood back
and realized that none of them are right?
And so you pick up a few more. And a few more. And so on.
And then as you stare at all those white paint chips that don’t work
you think…. there must be no less than 8,257 shades of white
so how are you going to be able to choose the right one?
White paint is so much more than just white paint.
Whites can lean pink, blue, gray, ivory, yellow and to infinity and beyond.
And then there is the name. Oh how I fall in love with a name and the idea of that color.
I can’t help it.
And so yes, I am currently knee deep in cans of white paint. Enough cans of paint for every.room.in the house… because I have a ton of photos to take for the book and those walls are looking like they need a refresh to me. And I am enlisting the help of my husband and kinds… oh they love me and my project lists, I tell you. 😉
And if you are like me- and you are on the hunt for the elusive perfect shade of white for your home- know that you are not alone. And the struggle is real.
