Merlot dutch boy paint, that is.
Yeah, Tuesday night I painted at the new house. I worked 8 hours at my job, got to the house and finished trimming a window, put one coat of green up in my kitchen, had some grub with Darin and went into the bedroom to put up coat number two of the merlot red color. I was on a ROLL! Ran out of paint, went to get the other gallon of Merlot and I can't find it anywhere. You know, the second gallon of merlot that I had mixed while getting the first gallon so they match all perfectly. And then I come across a gallon of paint labeled "oregon trail". I was half expecting to see little donkey's pulling a covered wagon galloping out of the paint can like in the DOS computer game from 6th grade. I hated that game. I killed my family every time. Every time.
Oh no.. no little donkies pulling a covered wagon.. just the pukiest color like the-first-time-a-babies-tried-carrots-poopy kinda yellow.
Not the one I had mixed.
Not my pretty merlot.
Hmff. So I didn't get my red walls finished. Not even close to finished. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that it's going to take 4 coats of paint. No joke. We have textured walls most of our house and I'm pretty sure:
textured walls + my pretty merlot = I'm the stupidest paint picker outer ever
Yeah, so I was a tad frustrated. Someone went home with my merlot and I got their oregon trail. =/ Prolly the other cute couple at the Menards paint kiosk. Mr. Menard's paint dude and I are tight. He should have known that puke yellow doesn't fit into my decor.
Anywho, no red walls to show you. =(
