A few weeks ago I posted about shower curtains for our upstairs bathroom, because I was going to have the painter repaint that bathroom. It turned out that I didn't have the painter do the bathroom at that time, and I didn't end up going with any of the shower curtains in that post, either. I painted the bathroom myself, and I ended up with a simple white shower curtain with turquoise/green/blue trim stripes on it from Target.
I painted it Behr's Havasu. You can see in the image below that it is a peacock-turquoise-greeny-blue.
It appeared wayyyyyy bluer than peacock when I opened the gallon, despite having tested a sample in the bathroom prior to starting.
Sadly, in the pictures below it appears to be a painter's tape royal blue, but I assure you that in person it has a strong green undertone.
The blue actually coordinates quite nicely with the Sophia Loren poster that is right outside the bathroom door.
The dark peacock color is very close to what I was hoping for....but....I am not 100% on board with this color. More like 85%. I don't hate it, but I don't love it like I thought I would. I can tell you that I am not in the mood to repaint it. Also, the heavy orange peel texture in this room made it difficult to keep crisp, straight lines, even with tape, so this color is probably going to be here for a while.
Ever have a paint color turn out not quite what you thought it would be, even though you tested it first?
