    • My worst decorating mess would have to be a quart of brown paint that was supposed to be a warm rich chocolate brown for one wall.  I got it on the wall and it just looked black so I tried to lighten it up with some cream colored paint and then it just looked like mud.  :(  

       Luckily the horrible wall is in hubby’s room and he doesn’t care what it looks like.  That WILL by my next renovation project though.

    • I once wanted to paint a kitchen wall brick red; it turned out bright pink. We had to paint over it three layers of red so that the fuchia didn’t come through.

    • Oh, red is hard to get right.  You almost have to have a tinted primer to get your end color to come out looking good.  I did cranberry in my kitchen once.  It was beautiful, but took LOTS of coats to get it right.

    • Haven’t had one,  I always have the painters to do a test patch.  I live with it for a day to see if I can live with it for years.
