I had a problem in my kitchen. (I have many other kitchen problems, just ask my husband about the chickens.) This one didn't have to do with food, though. After about 5 years of yellow in my kitchen, the walls had seen better days. Chair scrapes, paint peeling, stains ... you get the picture.
Brilliant idea #1
"I'll go get the same paint at the hardware store."
Um, no. After 5 years, the paint colors change.
Brilliant idea #2
No chipping pieces I could conveniently pull to color match.
Brilliant (and final) idea #3
So, I did, with a gallon of free paint from the county paint drop-off (you can get rid of old paint there or get some "new" for free!). And I love the new look!
