Hi there....Last weekend I was making my usual paint rounds at Lowes and Home Depot, I ponder about seeking beautiful colors that did not work out well for the person originally getting the color, otherwise known as Opps Paint. I have talked about it on previous posts , oops paint is just paint that had been mixed for a customer and they evidently dislike it for one reason or other. But that's ok because it becomes our gain. As long as we like the orphan cans of color.  The plus part is that the paints are Behr, Valspar etc. Gallons that can run anywhere from 30-55$ per gallon and for about 9$ you get a quality paint and very often I see 2 or 3 gallons of the same color.

It's a great way to paint furniture or just about anything. I add a wee bit of baking soda and you get a chalky paint ideal for sanding for that vintage look. Well this trip to Home Depot was not about Opps paint. I had been standing talking with the very nice lady at the counter whom always seems to be there…
