Unfortunately I chose to paint the very blue blue about a week before my medicine shelf exam, so I didn't have time to run out and fix my mistake right away. This was a good thing in the end for two reasons: One, because I realized that it wasn't so much that I had bought the wrong blue as that bold color just wasn't a good look with the rest of our bedroom. Two, because my Mom and Dad drove in to town to visit me (yay!) and Mom was able to help me figure out a more sensible shade.
So with paint expert (Mom) in tow I headed back to Sherwin Williams to beg the paint Gods for mercy. Luckily for me Betsey the master-paint-mixer was working, and instead of having to buy a whole other $22 quart of paint she was able to tint my "Blueblood," into the new blue we picked out called "Indigo Batik." It's a more muted and more purple blue shade.
In the end it turned out gorgeous. A nice sleek navy with a high gloss finish. I waited 3 or 4 days for the paint to dry before covering the whole thing with a few coats of Minwax Polycrylic high gloss to protect the finish and bump up the shine factor.
Here's the finished product!
