Oops Paint - Day 263

I have been putting off painting the boys bunk beds for well, six months now. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do or spend the money on paint. Last week Daniel was out of town on a business trip and I decided I wanted to paint the beds so it would be a nice surprise. I went to Home Depot and asked if they had any oops paint. I mean when someone asks for a certain color and it doesn't come out right, so they don't take it. They sell it at a reduced price. I was hoping to find a $15 dollar paint oops, and was pleasantly surprised to find one of my color choices was in the bunch and was only $7! Seriously! I totally bought it. I thought it would dry a great light green. It came out neon green! It doesn't look as bright when there is bedding on it and it is against the wall, but I thought it was so bright they kids wouldn't be able to sleep!

So, I have been paying attention to other stores and have found that even Walt-Mart carries oops paints. I am totally going to check here the next time I need some paint!

I think it's a fun color. it is bold, but that's what makes it fun!!! I think you had mentioned it was like a tree house, so I could totally see you painting a big tree on it that would completely go with that green color. I could also see some blue colored circles like on this link. It would look awesome!! http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/circles--vinyl-wall-decals-art-graphic-stickers
