I'm good at wasting time and letting nothing waste. I spent one afternoon going through my acrylic paints that were drying up and rinsing each bottle to get the last drop of color out. Why, you may ask.
Moving a chest into Andrew's bathroom, a larger better one and I didn't think he would like this color.
I had no paint except red or purple so I created a manly color out of all my bits and pieces. I also got to throw away about twenty bottles out of my paint box so there is room again! I use an old carpenter's wooden carrier for my paints...now I have room for my Gesso and a cup of brushes....and we have a new color.
Looking good, kinda dull, I liked the pink white washed look but Andrew isn't into pink. It's between a dark tan and army green. Not bad, and I am so proud of saving the paint and ditching those bottles. I ran into some colors that didn't mix well but the brush works great for that problem, just keep layering it on!
It was a good idea to put boxes under my work 'cause I got a little carried away. One more coat and all should be even and officially a dresser made for a young man's dressing room.
