April 6, 2009The Color of My Geneva Cabinets – 1958 Ford Blue
Ugh. It is snowing outside. I knew it was going to snow today, because Hubs had been repeating the forcast every hour yesterday, hanging his head and sighing every time. But I didn’t know it was going to snow so much! I thought it was supposed to be less than an inch! Less! It looks like at least an inch has fallen already, and it just keeps snowing. Ah well. I guess I will stay inside and work all day. I really need to organize my office anyway….
In the meantime, here are some pictures of the touch up paint that goes with my kitchen cabinets. It is Quick Drying DupliColor for cars. I found it during the initial scrub down of the cabinets before we moved in. It is, of course, dry as a bone and completely unusable. But it is nice to have an actual color name to go with the cabinets and to know that I have a little something to slip into my purse and carry around with me to try and match up colors, rather than trying to guess or to go off a photograph. Plus the bottle is adorable.
Here it is: 1958 Ford Blue. Azure Blue, to be more specific. And the bottle was used on the cabinets. A lot, actually. The people who owned our house before us were very militant about keeping everything in good repair. Which is fantastic, because now we have a house in really good condition. I wish I could still get this exact paint in this exact color, because I can see a couple places that need a touch-up. And using this paint, even though the touch-ups are old, if you aren’t leaning *thisclose*, you can’t even tell a repair was made. Ah well, I will have to make due. I know they have those color-matching paint systems now, so maybe I can get this color digitally matched in the future.
Otherwise, does anyone else out there have a great color story? Feel free to share anything about paint, painting or matching colors for your home.
Or let me know how the weather is by you! I want to get out of this winter wonderland and hear about some sun and fun…
