Holy Cow, What the Frik?

It's always something and if it isn't something, it's something else. My after pictures came out a horrible mustardy color and not even close to the real paint color, so I was going to color correct them in Photoshop. The other computer, the one with Photoshop, overheats and I use an external fan. I had used that fan in the bathroom to help the texture dry and when I just a few minutes ago went to plug it into the surge strip by that computer, crazy sparks flew out! I'm afraid of a bunch of things, but electrical sparks is certainly in my top ten. Why would it do that? I can't begin to explain how irritated I am about that. Anyway I'll just show the mustardy colored pictures, because that's all I have right now and will figure out later what the hell is with that fan.

So this was the before from the door:

This was the before from the window on the other end:

Here are some close-ups of the texture:






The paint is a different color in every picture which is really weird because this is not Oz and the walls are not walls of a different color. I will try to get better pictures. Maybe daylight will help and I want to figure out what made those crazy electrical sparks from the surge strip. It's a surge strip. Aren't they supposed to, you know, not have surges? I don't get that at all.

I really dislike being irritated. Being irritated makes me irritated, which is not good. I think I need to go to youtube and find soothing music to get myself back to my happy place. I'll be better next time.

Irritation is not good. Nope. Maybe the surge strip needs to be replaced? Oh, and I love the texture. What colour is it supposed to be?

Sorry Geewits. We'll have to wait until you get the colour right before we can see what you did. The yellow is very strong in these photos. Be careful with that surge strip. Safety first.

Gee, your bathroom is beautiful!You did such a great job! You are so right about the color too, doesn't look yellow at all in person. The true color is just like sand. Just beachin'!
