Trial. Error.

I want a yellow wall in the bedroom instead of the blue. It's such a small little wall so I figured I can add some yellow tint to half a can of white and get my sunny yellow.

002 

Here's the white with my skewers whisk.

003 

A bit of yellow tint goes in. Nothing much happens. I add the whole container. Still not much action. Need more yellow.

004 

Raiding the pantry. Yellow food coloring. Usually you need just a drop to get a vibrant yellow. Not so here. I add the whole thing. Still not much difference.

005 

Oh, there's a tube of yellow food coloring too. Add that. Hmm, this is not going too well.

006 

A partially dry jar of craft paint gets stirred, strained and added. No action.

007 

I hope Wille won't want to do any (yellow) art any time soon.

All gone. Puny result. Decide to still paint a swatch.

013 

Eeek! Early 90's mustard was not what I had in mind.

041 

End up tossing my concoction and buy a fresh can of yellow paint based on a sunny pretty yellow swatch. Hmmm. Too dark. Too bright. At the same time. Will add more white. Stay tuned…

And yes I know you are supposed to remove curtains and bedding before painting but, well, I didn't.
