Recently, when I missed out on buying the $100headboard…(yes still regretting it), I did buy a $20 chair for my son’s room.
From the start, I knew I would be painting it.
Originally, I thought navy would look great but he thought it would look too black. So, we settled on the color, Deep Royal from Benjamin Moore. On the paint chip it looked pretty navy to me so I thought it would work. Usually, I buy the mini paint samples and try them out but this time it was just a chair so I wasn’t as concerned.
Admittedly, I was a little nervous when I opened the can because it didn’t look as dark as I wanted it. But once I started painting, I figured I would just go with it.
I even had a little helper who just had to get involved.
Now, of course my son caught the painting bug and wanted to paint everything in sight…
Oh well, the plain terra cotta was boring!
So this is what the chair ended up looking like.
But in the sunlight, it looks much more royal blue than navy…I guess the name was correct!
But my little sweetie was happy And that is all that matters!
Believe it or not, the color is supposed to be the one on top. Maybe I need another coat…
Do you trust the paint chip or do you always test first?
