Not All Things Green are Lovely

I finished painting my kitchen yesterday, just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Ugh! My walls look like they're covered with McDonald shamrock shakes. Instead of turning out a sage, citrusy green, they're rather cool and minty. Minty is fine for gum and lifesavers, but please, not all over my walls! Now I have to decide if I want to go get more paint and do them over, or just leave them be.

Check at some place like Home Depot or Lowes (or your local paint place) and ask about some kind of faux finishing you might be able to do to get closer to the color you want. They're usually quite fun and add interesting texture.

a faux finish...that's exactly what I was going to say...maybe a cream over it will dull it down some

My dh surprised me one year while I attended a writing conference--he painted the upstairs hallway and all around the staircase. Problem was, he picked up a mint green instead of celery green. I've gotten used to it and now actually like it, or will until it needs to be repainted : )
