Atrium White or Cielo Blanco

The Handy Husband is patching a hole in the wall. He brought in 2 cans of white paint, wondering which matched the bathroom?

Hmmm... I put on my thinking cap. We used the Ameritone Cielo Blanco to paint the interior of the house about 18 years ago. So the Benjamin Moore Atrium White must be what we used for the master bath remodel 6 years ago. Why do I have to remember these things? You'd think we could manage to write something on the label!

Why did we have a hole in the wall? Ernest slipped getting out of the shower (he prefers ours to the one upstairs), grabbed onto a towel for balance, and yanked one end of the towel rack out of the wall. Leaving a large hole in the drywall. Yes, he's fine.

But don't you just love paint names? When we had my mother's house painted, I picked "Melted Butter" for the yellow exterior. And for the white trim, of course it had to be "Popped Corn." I'm completely serious.

All of the trim in our house is Atrium White! Yes, we went through the same thing when putting all of the little paint samples up on the window sill trying to figure out which shade of white we wanted. I would love to be the person that gets to come up with those ridiculous names. Our living room is painted Garden Glove. It's more commonly known as green.

You would probably make fun of me if you knew the names of the ink colors I use!

I think paint named after food is inappropriate, however. While you're painting, the only thing on your mind is going to be eating popcorn with melted butter on it!
