The 365 Project: Day 158

Due to poor picture quality, I'm pretty sure you can hardly see the two baby room paint colors being tested here. However, there are two. Well, one actually. I mentioned to Jamie, my friend who stages homes, that I was struggling with my search for the perfect aqua/teal color--all our swatches were looking too blue in this room. She asked if we were using primer (no, not yet), and if the color on the wall was currently a yellow tone (yes). Bingo!

So the color on the left is directly on the current paint; on the right we have primer down first. Made all the difference in the world and it turned out the sample I already had was exactly what I was looking for! Thanks Jamie!
