High Drama

 Well, I knew I couldn't live with the gray in our room. So I ran back out and got red. Without even look at the names I pick one I liked. When I looked at the name, I knew I had picked the right one....High Drama. Perfect. If you missed it...my first major fail was is here.



 This time I bought a flat finish. I like it. The dark gray shows through and gives an effect I love. It looks antique and scruffy.
 I didn't worry about being perfect. I am leaving it as is. I am not even going to use the paste wax. I heard it won't work with latex paint anyway...so I am very happy I didn't start.
 This is a perfect color for you room. I think it's fun, feisty, and perfectly dramatic!


Thanks for all your help and advice!!! Even having to do it twice...it really wasn't difficult. I love the built in primer. So smart and easy!





I'd like to post some pictures of of my dresser in my master bedroom....but it's mess right now!! That's why I am hoping ot win this giveaway!
Check out "Old grey Mare" here!
