Ah, a solution!!

We have found the red we are looking for!! Thanks to IowaMom who suggested going with more of an orangey-red....I had one of those picked out for my bathroom- Dried Chili Pepper by Dutch Boy. We white primered over the nasty red (3 coats of primer!) then did our tinted primer for the chili pepper and then did ONE coat of the new paint- it looks AWESOME!!!! One coat was it! Sam kept saying "that's the red I had in mind!!" Yes, me too! Great, awesome, rock on....unfortunately, now my bathroom- I decided that the chili pepper was too much for my bathroom, too dark. We ended up going with the sage green and latte....boring. Now my bathroom looks like my kid's room. I had really wanted to buy another gallon of a lighter burnt orange. Sam vetoed that idea, saying that we already have plenty of other paints to choose from- sage green, chili pepper or darker brown- that's it. Sam, you suck.

AWESOME! I'm so glad I could help. :) You should post some pictures. I'm sure I'm not alone with wanting to see the finished product. :)

So, how much more do you have to do before you move in?
