The first thing I did was remove the old nails and I decided to patch and paint the spots that were damaged by where the photos used to be. I figured while I was at it, I would also touch up a few other spots around our room. The more I touched up, the more spots I found. Before I knew it, I had made touchups to every wall space.
The thing is… I made a mistake! I forgot that the can of Palladian Blue in the basement was from the Sunroom/Playroom and not our bedroom. So when the paint dried… you could TOTALLY see a color difference. The paint is a whole shade darker on the walls. I had trouble photographing it, but you’ll have to take my word for it. It’s bad. It's obvious day and night. And I touched up every. single. wall. It’s really bothering me, but I’ll have to live with it for a while. At some point in the not-too-distant future we will have to decide if we should a) repaint our room with palladian blue or b) paint our room a new color. I really love the blue, but it might be fun to change things up a bit!
Even with the paint disaster I hung the pictures anyways. We’ll be living with the mottled paint for a while, might as well distract the eye!
