This is my lucky day. I have been trying to buy a small black table to decorate my foyer/entryway. I found one on Monday at Ross for a reasonable price. The only problem was that it had baskets for drawers, and they were not the right color. See? Way too light to go with the rug.
So I went to the store and bought some primer spray paint and what I thought would be a nice sage green to spray-paint the baskets. After two days of on and off painting in my pantry and stinking up the house (it was way too cold and wet to do this outside) I put the baskets in this morning and noticed something. They looked terrible. Way too bright and kind of Incredible-Hulk green, if you know what I mean.
So I went BACK to the store and bought a darker green to repaint them with. The sun was shining and it was above freezing, so I set up on the back patio and got busy. Not only was it a much better color, but the darker green looks AMAZING over the lighter green underneath. Talk about a fortunate accident! I love it. How fortuitous for me.
