I went to Lowes with my samples (man, those paint chips are over whelming-just made me want to paint everyting into a technicolor dream) and it took a while to find a "not too" color.
I loved this one-truly. It's called La Fonda--something. And it is much more vibrant in person. I also bought a butt-load of foam fishies, some acrylic paint and fish nets! who knew you could buy used fish nets. Ain't craft stores amazing. I was strong and stayed on task--avoiding the yarn and the bead section. brave, very brave.
Tomorrow I'll add another coat and see if the wood coping needs another coat.
