You have seen pictures of the shelf where our baby stuff is stored. It was a deep red color, which was fine in our room.
Last week I wanted to move it to the babies room, so I decided to paint it white. We had some white paint from touching up our walls that I could use. Unfortunately, it did not go like I had pictured.
Yup, it turned pink! It looked fine right after I painted it, but when it dried the white paint had soaked in pigment from the red. This would be great if we were having a girl- but would definitely not do for our little boys room. After adding 2 more layers of white, I gave in to my failure and realized that the pink would not be covered up by the white. So, I decided that I would paint it brown instead.
It turned out ok in the end- but took 3 times as long as I had planned!
