Anyhoo, I painted the room last week with my oops paint. I had almost a gallon of very, very light aqua and it did two walls. Then I went to WallyWorld and tried to match up another gallon. The closest I got was waaaay to dark. What to do?? I purchased a gallon of base paint without the tint added. I then tested several mixes to see what ratio I needed to get the color of the paint already on the wall. Two parts white to one part colored and I have almost a match. Good enough to pass SweetiePies inspection.
Now my dilemma....I have a good sized wall that I patched holes from numerous picture hangings that is soooo nice.....smooth, no holes. I want to make this my wall for taking pictures. Now it looks so nice I don't want to put any hooks into it to hang my fabric. Here is a test photo...

It may take a while....but I am sure I can fill it up. Right now I have only plastic totes but I have been on the lookout for some shelves or bookcases to stack larger things.
All in all....a nice problem to have.
