Hot Off The Presses Funny

From The Funny Mom Blog Archives – Flash Back Friday

This post was originally published on my original Blogspot blog titled “Sarcastic, Funny and Brutally Honest” on April 1, 2009. Unfortunately it was not an April fools joke but merely an inexperienced girl choosing very, very bad paint colors in her very first home. We had owned our home for less than 2 months and I couldn’t stand the army dark colors anymore. I wanted something brighter and cleaner looking. What I got was a circus instead. Read on…

——————————————————————

I really do wish this was an April Fools joke-but alas, it is not!

I used to watch those do-it-yourself shows and think the people that couldn’t pick a paint color to save their lives were morons. Then I became one. And now I’ve decided that interior decorating sucks and the whole dealy can go suck it. lol.
The first couple of pictures are the colors the old owners chose. I hated them. It’s hard to decipher in these pics, but the green was a brownish greenish army green and the brown was a pinkish tanish awful brown. And the colors got worse as the daylight went on.
I wanted a mustard yellow and a hunter green. I chose a lighter green thinking that a dark green would be too dark. Too dark-imagine that. The yellow I chose looked like a mustard yellow in theory. You can see for yourself how that theory turned out…

And the colors I chose…

I’m happy to tell you all that in the cost of an extra $550 the paint colors will be changed. I’ll post those pics tomorrow.

Have a happy day ya’ll. And remember-try test colors on the wall first…

————————————–

Looking back to this experience that was 5 years ago I am able to laugh. I couldn’t laugh then because I was too horrified. I learned a valuable lesson that day: when the painters are laughing and snickering while painting – that means you chose bad paint colors.
