I got the wrong Valspar paint color...but there's good news
I got home and tested it on a small area and almost threw up in my mouth. Um...I was looking for something in the gray family for my gray master bedroom makeover - this looks almost white with a hint of blue in it.
My first thought was to try to mix the paint with something that I already had in the basement to get the color more gray, but I didn't have anything that would even remotely work. Then I went on Lowes' website to see about their paint return policy. Turns out Valspar, not Lowes gives rushed, indecisive, or picky people, like me, who don't like the paint color a second chance - without having to shell out more money for another two gallons.
Here's how Valspar's Love Your Color promotion works...if you purchase one or two gallons of Valspar Signature paint between 4/4/12 and 10/7/13 and don't like you can get your money back from Valspar through a mail-in rebate. Now, you have to go back to the store and buy the new color of paint. You don't get a third chance so get it right here (and don't take your distracting kid who's leaving a trail of goldfish down the paint aisle). DO NOT take the gallon of paint you don't like back to Lowes...just go and buy the new color within 30 days of the original paint purchase. It must be the exact same thing with the exception Now, adjacent to each other, paint a small area on the wall of each color and take a picture. Then go on Valspar's Love Your Color website and fill out the rebate form. Finally, mail the rebate request form, the photo of the wall and the original receipts to: Valspar® Love Your Color Offer, Dept. 8199, PO Box 5012, Stacy, MN 55078-5012.
