Remember when I found my off-the-shelf Pure Black by Behr, and thought I had this paint color thing in the bag…
I was sadly mistaken.
By the time all the interior doors were done, this place looked like something out of a dark vampire goth Hollywood night club.
Then I decided to go my “Black Truffle” color-match route once more at Home Depot. Three unsuccessful color matches later, and I thought the paint counter guy and I were going to ring each others necks.
Things were looking pretty dismal in my blacker than black dark vampire hallway, until my girlfriend, Nicki, reminded me there are a few local places that still carry Ralph Lauren paint, so I called around and found a small place in Northridge that did in fact carry it…
On the Ralph Lauren website, the paint store locator link doesn’t seem to be working, but I called their customer assistance line, and the gal on the other end was able to help me find a store nearby.
I’m happy to report I’ve got two brand new cans of Black Truffle paint sitting in my hallway just waiting to get cracked open. Maybe this weekend perhaps?
::: Flooring :::
In other DIY news, the floors are coming along beautifully and we’re halfway through our first room, the guest room/office.
It helps to have this strong guy at my side. Just look at all those heavy boxes! Turns out, we’ve decided we are going to rip out the carpet from all three carpeted bedrooms.
We decided to stay with the same color that is in our living room, kitchen, dining room and hallway…
Tearing out the old yucky carpet turns out to be the best feeling in the world.
And who knew Chloe had such an interest in DIY projects?
Be sure to stay tuned for more on our doors n’ floors adventure.
