I want to redecorate the 2 rooms which have not been touched since we moved here 3 years ago- the upstairs bathroom and my bedroom. I have ideas for how I want them both to look but money and lack of time have meant that they haven't yet happened.
I want to get both done this summer holiday. So I used knowledge of mixing colours to make the colour I wanted for the bathroom using just old cans of paint leftovers from decorating the rest of the house.
that's 2 tins of blue and one pink- can you guess the colour I am aiming for yet?
The middle tin is so old I couldn't open it but that's fine I can still do what I want.
I mixd some of the blue into the pink, then a little more. It made a lovely pastel lilac colour, not quite as bold a shade as I want. So back in the shed I go I know there's another leftover pot to help me in there;
Yes the splash of red made all the difference.
It still looked a touch light, so in the pot of leftover blue I mixed in a little red and made a deeper shade. I came inside to try them both on the wall and see which one looked best.
I may need to buy a little wood as I have plan but apart from that this room makeover has cost me nothing so far!
