Happy Friday, folks!
I need your help.
I gave you a sneak peek of the primed railings yesterday and was hoping to show you finished and pretty ones today. But, things didn’t work out that way. Let’s start from the beginning:
Although white is so fresh, I knew they wouldn’t stay that way since they are railings and all. I decided to go with Seal, by Martha Stewart because I thought it would be a deep but “soft” black. Click here to see it in action. The first coat…
This color is really rich and beautiful BUT -
The tones of the door and the railings are clashy. The railings are very brown, whereas the Zinc by Martha Stewart door is a cooler gray. Do you see what I mean?
Please ignore the monster rainbow gate and those blue carpeted stairs. Our house is total crazy town.
Martha Stewart warned me, she really did. See, she has symbols on each of her paint colors so you can supposedly match the symbols and those colors should play nicely together. Zinc and Seal have two different symbols. I was embolden by my yellow door that I disregarded her advice. Sigh.
Here is my conundrum: Do I buy a new quart of paint in black semi-gloss? Or do I paint over them with the leftover Zinc that I have, knowing that is only an eggshell finish (not easy to clean smudgy fingerprints off of)? At least it’ll match but it won’t “pop”.
