    When a paint/wall color is called "eggshell", I don't think this is what they mean.

    For the record, I painted my walls this color a good two years before I bought the chick that laid this egg.

    I'm holding a white piece of paper for color comparison.

    Lol, ever since I had EEs my eye is always drawn to their egg colors on things in the store. Very pretty.

    Oooh that is a pretty color! What's it called, and who's the paint company?

    My husband, the pro painter, is chuckling. I'm thinking now, when you go to the paint store and ask for eggshell, are they going to ask what breed? [​IMG]
