Dagoba Organic Chocolate

Here’s a good story from a few years ago.

We had just bought a new house…well, not entirely new, but new to us.
For whatever reason, the previous owners had the house built with white/cream colored carpets.

And they left A LOT of the walls white. 

I can’t deal with that – I MUST have color!!!

One of the projects that I decided to take on (one of the many projects) was to paint the master bedroom.

And I decided that I wanted to paint one wall a dark chocolate brown.

So paint day, I get all of my materials together, take them up to the bedroom, and put drop cloths along the edge of the room against the hubby’s wishes – he wanted me to cover ALL of the carpet – but why? I was only painting one wall???

And then I quickly found out why!

Yep…knocked over the can of paint – dark brown + clean white carpet = major OOOOPPPPPSSSS!!!

If my mom had known years ago, that even after my 9 years of dance lessons, I would still be this clumsy and this big of a klutz, my middle name would have been Grace. J I take it in stride!

I mean it takes serious talent to trip UP the stairs. Oh yeah – I can do it! All the time!!!

So there’s the chocolate brown paint…how about we talk about chocolate-chocolate – as in Dagoba Organic Chocolate?

 In case you wondered – I was able to get the chocolate brown paint out of the carpet with a whole lot of passes with the carpet steamer.
