paint samples, more like stress samples

I recently discovered the concept of "test pots" of paint.
 
They are a mistake.
 
Last week my basement wall looked like this:
 
 
 
I was going crazy. I couldn't make a decision to save my life.
(Partly/Possible due to many other things {stresses} going on in my life, currently)
 
Anyway, I picked a paint color and it was none of the above.
I picked my color without testing it first because I was so fed up with not loving the colors I was "testing". Maybe I'm not as good a visualizer as I've always thought I was? 
 
I love the color I finally picked {test free}! So I probably would have loved any/all of these too if I'd just put them up on the wall and quite trying to "sample" them! We still need to do a second coat and this is just a phone pic, but I think you'll get an idea...
 
 
 
 
The color is "Wood Smoke" by Glidden, but I got it at Sherwin Williams because I'm a fan of their paint quality.
 
Our basement has come a loooong way... I owe some serious before and after pictures!

  2. No matter which synthetic oil you choose, one thing is for sure.

    Often this test will show that you can go even further between changes.
    There are three types of oil to consider for your vehicle: conventional,
    synthetic, and synthetic blend.
