I've been working diligently on the 2 dressers I recently purchased. As always, I'm working right in the middle of the house and as always, I cite entertaining as my motivation to complete the work. We have friends coming for a week-long visit and it would be nice if the guests were able to walk through the house without falling over drawers sprawled across the floor.
So how does yogurt have anything to do with painting you might wonder. While I am over-the-moon crazy for Liberty yogurt for its taste, I also love that the container can be used for so many things such as mixing paint.
The mid century dresser is being painted in shades of gray with a white stripe effect on the drawers. I thought it would be kinda cool to paint the outside of the dresser with a darker gray than the drawers so I mixed a lighter shade using the darker gray and white. Sounds pretty simple, right? It was except that when I ran out I mixed a second batch using the exact same ratio but when I used it to touch up (after the striping effect was complete) I noticed a slight difference. Call me a stickler but I have this thing about the touch ups being the same colour as the paint I'm touching up.
This is what happens when you try to do a job that should be left to the professionals!! Guess what I'm doing today. I'll give you a hint...it will require a steady hand and a yogurt container full of paint.
Don't you just hate when that happens?
