A Fail and a Fix

    My daughter asked me to paint a nursery dresser for their baby boy due in March.  It is just the right height for them to put a changing pad on and it needed to be a pretty specific size to go into the space.  What I didn't realize was how specific the color requirements for the dresser were going to be.  Dad is a hard-core Star Wars lover and mom is a huge Harry Potter fan, so this little guy is going to have a room that combines these two themes.  They are working on very specific touches to the room.  They are really cool, but so much different than traditional baby nurseries used to be.
They are still adding touches to the room, but it is really sweet and such a reflection of their personalities.  I hope to get more pictures to add at some point.
    So, I totally failed on the color for the dresser.  It was way too bright and didn't fit what they wanted at all.  Boo, I messed up.  So, paint brush in hand I returned, sanded and repainted with a different blue chalk paint.  I can't remember the name of the color, but it is so dark that at first I thought it was black.
Fail:
Fix, yay!:
Matches the room so much better and my daughter is very happy with it now.  For the record, this is grandchild #14!
