to be environmentally friendly i decided to use up all the leftover paint bits and pieces and make up a brand new colour.
2 parts baby blue paint (don't ask - it was supposed to be spa blue. it's not.)
1 part dirty yellow paint
1 part white paint
1/2 part indeterminate sand colour paint
imagine an elf princess fed on moonbeams and young birch leaves. the poop she would poop is roughly the new colour of the spare bedroom and i think i like it.
(i might also be high on the kind of special paint fumes you get when you randomly hurl various brands of paint together in one bucket and stir.)
also, in response to the buy handmade movement and to counteract the cheap made-in-china, ready-for-the-dump mentality of north american consumerism, mr. monkey and i splurged on a gorgeous sleek modern walnut dresser handmade in edmonton by a couple of great guys whose business i definitely want to support. it cost more than i have ever spent on a piece of furniture AND it was reduced. but in this case, well worth it. if you come over i might let you touch it, but you'll have to wash your hands.
