When I lived in San Diego, I had the boldest shade of yellow on my kitchen walls. It was appropriately named Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and it was yellow with just enough green in it to make it unusual while still being a versatile shade of yellow overall. It looks good with brown, tan, black, grey, and almost every color of the rainbow. I was obsessed.
When I found out that I had to move for work, meaning I had to paint over my happy yellow walls, I was very sad about it. So, I drove up to my new city with the can of EVOO in my backseat, waiting to find its next application and adventure.
Six months later, I got tired of driving around that old can of paint - yes, I said six months. The weird thing is that I cleaned trash and everything else out of my car, I just never removed the paint can! - and so it was finally time to put it to use and bring some cheer to my new home!
