Hi, I happened on to your site and love it! I have been looking everywhere for a robin egg blue paint and have many samples on my wall but not one is the "right" one. I am wondering if you could tell me the name of your robin egg blue? Also the red for the cupboards? Absolulty love them- I am a red fan and boy those cupboards look great? ~J.
Thank you for visiting my blog and dropping me a note - I love "meeting" my visitors!
I actually mixed the robin's egg blue myself. I had a couple of Martha Stewart shades of green and blue on hand, plus some white and a little black, and I just mixed until I found the shade I was looking for. I painted a sample and had it color matched at Lowes and it was perfect! I'll give you the formula/code that is printed on the top of the can and hopefully they will be able to mix it for you, too. Keep in mind that every paint mixing machine at hardware stores is slightly different - they don't all have the exact calibration, even within the same store. So your color may not be *exactly* what my color is, but really close. Also, if you have paint mixed on one machine and need to go back for more, make sure they use the same machine.
This is what it says at the top of my can:
Valspar Eggshell Base 1
As for the red, I posted just this morning about this very question...feel free to check it out here! If you have any other questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to help!
