I hadn't really thought about what it would be like to have 28 equally gorgeous paint colours to choose from. It seemed like a no-brainer at first... the paint labels are white with blue lettering, so it appeared obvious to paint the cabinet in coordinating colours. Then a feeling overcame me that it might be too matchy-matchy, and I swung the other way... offset the cans by respecting the colour wheel and go red. But every time I look over at the towers of paint cans, well the deciding starts all over again.
So, I thought maybe some suggestions would be in order, and I'd love to hear yours!

I have not included the 55+ colours you can make by mixing these (AS Chalk paint contains very little black pigment, at least all but Graphite, which means pure colour mixes... nothing to muddy them up). That would just wreak further havoc on the current state of my aesthetic sensibilities (how's that for a mouthful), but we will look at the how-tos etc. on this blog in the future because it's just too much fun not to.
In the meantime, consider this my call for help. I'm looking forward to your ideas of fabulousness!
