Shades of Tiddely Pom
Saturday, July 29, 2006
With the good news that our I-171h arrived (and like way earlier than we thought it would), I got inspired and made some minor changes to the Operation Pooh plan.

Our trim color in the house is a very bright white and because we were going to keep the carpeting that's already in the room I was going going to keep the trim as is (painting baseboards with carpeting in place is a real pain). However, I've made a change with that plan and ended up buying the trim color that is suppose to go with the Winnie the Pooh room plan.

So with that change I went down to Home Depot to get the paint. I actually don't like shopping there as much as I like Lowes. The people at Home Depot aren't as nice or helpful but since the Disney paint is only at Home Depot, there I went. But since I do believe it's important to spend dollars with the companies you like to deal with, I ended up going to Lowes as well to get some of the additional painting supplies I needed. And with much enthusiasm I started painting. Not really sure if you can even tell the difference in the trim color. That one shot below is the two closet doors with the one on the left being the original trim color and the one on the right the new color. It's just a bit softer than that really bright white of the original trim.

    I second your thoughts about Lowes! They are much more helpful there than at Home Depot. Unfortunately, you can only get Disney and Ralph Loren paint at Home Depot. *sigh* The door on the right does look a bit softer in color than the one on the left. That will probably be better on young eyes than the bright white.

    Just happened to stumble upon your blog, and want to offer your encouragement and any support you may need on your exciting adoption journey! We just adopted in December - a boy, now 3, and a girl, nw 20 months, from Kazakhstan. Already, I do not remember what my life was like without them!

    Congratulations on getting the approval of your 1-171h I read other comments and it seems you got it really fast. Maybe everything else will fall in place as well and move really quickly. No matter what, it will probably seem slow it always does when you are waiting for something.
    We got back last night from our trip to Hawaii so I just read the news today.
    I looked at the pictures as well and can tell a little difference in the paint. You are very efficient.

    ok, you can take your Disney paint sample to Lowes and have them make it for you. The disney paint is just a color pallette. The actual paint is just Behr paint. Then they put a Disney sticker on it. Ralph Lauren is a totally different story. That stuff rocks!!!! The paint itself.

    If you ask me the Behr paint is much better than the Lowes stuff. Don't buy Glidden it's crap. The RL paint is much thicker, but of course much more expensive. Take it from me. I (we) have repainted every surface of our house (some twice or 3 tims) and I always go for the Behr. However, I buy all molding at Lowes.
