Our New Old House

1918 Bungalow


Random paint cans in my basement

Yeah, the title of the post says it all. These are old paint cans. One thing I learned, though, is that the minty green color of the outside of our house was known as “Park Green.” Fascinating. (No, really.)


I love the little tagline on this one: “Superiority through research” accompanied by a little swirling electron icon. Very fifties/sixties!

So… the awful pink color of the kitchen door came from Sears.

Haven’t figured out what color’s in this one, but the fact that it is the Wards brand, as in Montgomery Wards, the now defunct department store chain, it’s probably from the seventies or eighties.

    That’s quite a variety 🙂 That “superiority through research” tag is quite funny.
