As I said yesterday, the Bun's room is oh-so-close to being the warm kind of pink room and not the bubble-gummy kind of pink room. And one of the things holding me back is her duvet cover.
It is hot pink. Hot.
It was fine as a pop of color in the green room, but now it's just baaaad. How bad? Even the semi-color-illiterate JWH called it out. That kind of bad.
But the kid? She looooves it. I might have almost had her okay with a light pink flannel one...but not really. She knows, she senses, she feels when I am trying to take away her pink. I have to play it really cool, people, really cool. I have to duck and bob and weave. Or else she is like, "nooo, I love my pink thing that I have never before even expressed an opinion about or seemed to even notice!"
Well, yesterday I posted that same old time-worn picture of the pink room that made me feel like a pink room could be done in a semi-ok way, and it hit me. There is some darker pink bedding n that room, but it's a cooler pink. And by "cooler" I do not mean hipper or trendier, I mean a color with more of a blue base than a red/yellow base. And that, my friends, is when the idea hit me. Maybe I could strategically fade the duvet cover I have. Hit it with the RIT?
I have never done this sort of thing, but the internets, they are alive with possibilities:
- I can use RIT dye remover and make it less hot and paler (maybe, results are not guaranteed)
- If that fails I can hit it with RIT "Wine" and got for a cranberry color, or
- If the remover removes too much I can hit it with the "Petal Pink," but just a touch...
Hmm. This is an interesting turn of events.
"Oh, honey, the washer turned your duvet a different color...hmmm."
