My mirror makeover hit a snag!
I showed you earlier this week a peek at my master bathroom mirror makeover plan…
I had picked out what looked like a great “espresso” brown paint during Glidden’s free paint giveaway. I picked Dark French Chocolate… doesn’t it sound yummy?
Well it looks purple!
Like a deep eggplant purple!
I decided to email customer service at Glidden to ask if this is normal. (I haven’t heard back yet). I also goggled my observation… I wanted to see if this is just how this color looks or if they made a mistake on my can of paint. Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks Dark French Chocolate looks purple.. I found a few other bloggers who had the same conclusion.
I decided to paint one piece of my molding… hoping it might dry brown…. not!
Here’s the molding next to my brown Ugg-like boots. I don’t think the lighting is doing it justice…
So I think I’m going to mix my own. I’ve got this can and by-golly-by-gosh I’m going to make it work… did you hear me stomping my feet ((smile)).
Eek… I hope I like it!
