We had our first snowfall. We’ve had flurries, but yesterday there was finally enough snow to stick on the ground for a few hours. The time for outdoor work is coming to an end, and I’m glad that I crossed painting the mudroom door off my list a few weeks ago.
I chose a grey-turquoise, Knoxville Gray from Benjamin Moore. In pictures it looked like a nice, dark, saturated, not too bright turquoise. On the BM website, it looks grey. (And on a dim snowy day it looks quite blue.)
As I started to paint, I was questioning my choice. It was grey.
I had nice weather. It was a preschool day, so I had time.
I. Was. Painting. The. Door.
I envisioned speeding into town to get the can retinted to more blue, more green, more colour.
And then it started to dry. And it wasn’t grey. It wasn’t blue. It wasn’t green. It was the perfect nice, dark, saturated, not too bright turquoise.
Next up, painting the rest of the mudroom (an inside job that will hopefully begin this week).
