Muddy Puddle

Husband of Mine has some time off in a week or so, and has gone to Homebase this morning with Son of Mine to get supplies. Gravel – to fill in the potholes in the drive that are now huge thanks to the snow we had this year. And paint – to give the utility room a much needed make-over.

Once upon a time, I would have spent hours agonising over paint choices, buying tester pots, painting large swatches and leaving them on the wall to look at them in all lights before finally making a decision.

Now? A quick check on the paint manufacturer’s website to find the perfect colour.

“Muddy Puddle, one of our favourite and most flexible neutral shades.”

Easy. Decision made based on the colour of the mud brought in every day by the Family, not to mention the Cat’s paw prints and the blood and guts from the array of small mammals she brings in and dissects. She’s cute though, in a ‘love-and-hate relationship’ kind of way.

Time taken to decide? About 10 minutes.

Then another 30 to blog about it.

    Names of colours rather amuse me, off -white, chalk white, grey -white, etc…
    My (f)utility is in a cream colour (from the Dulux Heritage range) and a green (again Dulux heritage) – when the decorator put it up he said he didn’t like it as it reminded him of his mother’s old kitchen when he was growing up. What goes around comes around.

    • Like the sound of this combination… mine has been cream for the last few years. Obviously, I do clean up the mud – from time to time 😉 – but the room’s looking tired. Bit like me, really!
