So I went back to the store and got a can of paint called Blank Canvas. I literally looked at the name of it and thought, "Yep. Blank Canvas. Is there anything so inspirational or peaceful as a blank canvas? Love it." Bought it.
I began to paint again and the color was looking a bit peachy. And then I started to hate myself and say, "Becky, what kind of person buys a can of paint because they like the name of the color? Seriously. That's like marrying someone because you like their name. Ridiculous." I mumbled, moaned, grumbled, and did a second coat.
And it turned out great. Phew. Knew I could trust my gut on that.
And then I was walking by the paint the other day, and picked out five paint swatches based solely on their name...
