Effectively, I assumed I had my plan for the 72-color cupboards written in stone, however then y’all got here alongside and threw a wrench in my plans. 😀 I had commenters on yesterday’s put up current different choices, and now I can’t resolve which one I like essentially the most! Fortunately, this indecision hasn’t delayed me in any respect as a result of I solely had time yesterday to complete the entire prep work, so I gained’t even be capable to begin portray till late this afternoon. So that offers me time to indicate y’all of the choices so to weigh in.
First, let me remind you of my unique concept. I’ve 72 paint colours in a gradient beginning with purple, ending with purple, and with the entire spectrum in between. I initially began with the stack of paint chips in gradient order, and laid them out in rows beginning with the purple and pinks on the high, and ending with blues and purples on the backside…
I saved them within the order I wished them, and did each row from left to proper…
The second possibility I offered was doing the colours in the identical order, however reversed in order that I begin with purple on the high after which go to blues, after which ending with the pinks and purples on the backside.
Once more, that’s all 72 colours saved so as in rows, with the entire rows going from left to proper.
However one of many new concepts steered yesterday was that I do the design diagonally as an alternative of in rows. That intrigued me, so I attempted it out. Right here’s what it could seem like beginning with purple and pinks within the high left, and ending with blues and purples within the backside proper.
Right here’s the sample I used to attain that look. Once more, I saved the 72 paint playing cards in the identical gradient order. I began within the high proper after which labored diagonally, going the wrong way with every new diagonal row.
And right here’s that sample in reverse order, with the purples and blues within the high left nook, and ending with pinks and purples within the backside proper nook.
And right here’s what that very same diagonal design appears like if the order of the 72 colours is reversed, beginning with the purples and blues on the high left, and ending with pinks and purples on the backside proper.
And as if these weren’t sufficient choices to complicate issues, I additionally determined to attempt the switchback structure, with the primary row going left to proper, and the following row going proper to left, and repeat. Right here’s that structure beginning with purples and pinks on the high and ending with blues and purples on the backside…
And right here’s a visible to clarify this structure. Once more, I saved the 72 paint playing cards in gradient order, and laid them out on this method beginning with the highest left nook
And right here’s what that appears like in reverse order beginning with purples and blues on the high, and ending with pinks and purples on the backside.
And that’s this identical switchback structure.
So these are actually the six choices — my two unique concepts, plus 4 new ones based mostly on feedback from yesterday’s put up. And I can’t resolve!!
As a result of I’m coping with 72 totally different paint colours, this isn’t actually a mission that I’m going into with the thought, “It’s simply paint! If it doesn’t look proper the primary time, I’ll simply redo it!” I imply, all of that’s true. It is simply paint. And we will all be assured that if it doesn’t look proper, I will redo it. 😀 However since there are such a lot of colours, I’d actually wish to get it proper the primary time.
I believe if I had been compelled to decide proper this minute, I’d in all probability select one of many diagonals. However which one? I don’t know. However then I take a look at the opposite ones, and typically a kind of appeals to me essentially the most. So whereas I’m having fun with a pleasant lunch and dialog with my mother this afternoon, y’all get to weigh in on this. After which once I get dwelling late this afternoon, I can learn by way of your feedback, decide, and get began portray…except individuals make new recommendations within the feedback right this moment and confuse my mind much more. 😀 In that case, you’ll be able to blame them once I present up tomorrow nonetheless having made no progress on portray after staying up half the evening arranging and rearranging paint swatches. 😀 Hopefully that gained’t occur, and there shall be a transparent crowd favourite from the six choices above.
