Weekend High & Low
Hullo there, how was your weekend? Were you surprised by some warm weather like we were? PK and I tried to make the most of our weekend by getting the skirting boards done- and it was a bigger job than we anticipated!
We decided to take the plunge and purchase a 1L tin of Dulux's Horizon Sky (Quarter Strength) because we both agreed it looked like what we were aiming for out of all of the paint chips we had spread around the kitchen. But we didn't want to go all out and buy all of the paint we wanted (we'll be painting the whole great room the same colour) just in case it wasn't exactly what we wanted. Good thing that we didn't because it turned out way too purple! We didn't even think it looked purple on the paint chip- more of a light blue-grey. However, we should have been tipped off when at the paint counter before mixing, the assistant asked if it was a purpley blue -Denial is not just a river in Egypt! It's a difficult colour to capture on camera (at least with my middling photography skills) but here is the area behind the fridge after painting:
