It was unanimous. Everyone wanted the formula for the perfect red.
I wasn’t trying to “tease” or “bait” you.
I actually had gotten paint all over the bar code that Lowe’s puts on your cans to identify the mixed color and wasn’t sure which sample I had used.
I was finally able to get to Lowes yesterday and they looked it up for me. My Lowe’s paint guys are sooooo helpful!
So, no fancy recipe. Nothing complicated. Just a messy painter who slopped all over her can.
The perfect red is……….
Drum roll please………
Match ofÂ Valsparâ„¢Â 1011-3Â Quite RedÂ
This is why it is so important to try the color and not go just off the swatch.
To me….the swatch looks burgundy.
And I definitely didn’t want burgundy.
On wood…..it actually is the “perfect” red.
You wouldn’t believe how different it looks in that part of my living room right now.
I will show you later this week. (Another teaser! ; ) )
For the perfect red……Lowes sells the Valspar samples for around $2.80.
Go try the perfect red for yourself.
I have so much to tell you guys. I need your take on a couple of things. Make sure to stick around. I need you all!
When will we be able to catch up?
Were you one of the ones waiting for the color?
If not, for $2.80 would you find something to paint this perfect shade of red?
I would love to hear your plans!
I love hearing from you.
