Mustard Mishap

Have you ever had troubles picking paint colors? If not, I think you are part of, mmm, 1% of the population...either that or you're male (my husband could care less). Wehehell, let me tell you a little story about picking the color yellow.

Apparently (and I should know this because I paint) yellow is easy to mess up. In my head, I had the perfect earthy-mustard colored wall behind the couch in my living was beyond sink-into-the-couch-and-read-forever/coziness kind of cute. Ya. Right.

I ended up with this:

You may be thinking, "Oh, that's not so bad...". I can assure you. It's so bad. It looks way worse in person. My terrible point and shoot camera cannot capture the hideousness. It has this awful puke green undertone that actually gives me a headache. You would think it's 'that bad' if I told you that I was going for "cottage chic".  epic fail.

But, I'll just have to brush this one off and try again, right? I just thought I'd let you know that you're not alone. I make terrible choices also. Stay tuned to see what I come up with next! :)
