Oh my.  Very few men do a good job picking out colors.  You’d better bring out the sunglasses!  But then, it could make it worse!

O geez. Does it at least match your furniture, decor, etc.?

Reminds me of the day Darling Husband had gotten off work early & decided to swing through Lowe’s. Our laundry room was in desperate need of fresh paint. He called me at the office & asked what color he should get. My response “A clean color like you’d paint a bathroom. Just white or a light color will do.”


When I got home the laundry room was painted BRIGHT NEON GREEN. It literally hurts your eyes to walk in there first thing in the morning.


So just think- it could be worse!

Lol, youre a darling.  You’re taking this so much better than I would have hahaha. I think I would have gone nuts for him changing the color with out telling me, then started repainting everything again.

Many years ago, my grandparents decided to paint the shutters outside of their house.  My grandmother told my grandfather that she didn’t care what color he picked as long as it wasn’t green. 

You guessed it.  When he got to the paint store, the only thing he could remember was “green.”  When she got home from work that afternoon she sat in her car and cried because the shutters had all been painted emerald green.  The didn’t have a whole lot of money, so those shutters stayed green until they both passed and the house was sold.  In fact, it’s the only color I remember them being when I was a child.

The new owners promptly pained all of the shutters Barney-the-Dinosaur purple.  It was awful.  But I’m sure my grandmother was looking down saying “ha! Finally got rid of the green.”

@jessitaylor:  This reminds me of something that happened to my sister when we were at my bachelorette party.  Her husband isn’t very handy AT ALL and never does anything himself around the house.  Well she had been wanting to paint her daughters (she’s 2) bathroom a REALLY light yellow color… so she comes home and it is HIGHLIGHTER yellow, she immediately was like “OMG THIS IS THE UGLIEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN!!” it was HILARIOUS!!!!!! He was like…. yeah it’s pretty bad huh? So even he knew… hahahahaha I’m still cracking up thinking about it.
