History in Paint

I had to do some painting today. It's been quite a few years since I've had occasion to get out the roller and pan, but as I was cleaning up after I finished, I realized the pan is a piece of my family history:

The yellow is from the dresser we painted for DN3.1 before she was born.

The blue is from her room when it was repainted as she became a teenager. (The ceiling is blue, too; that almost did my neck in.)

The dark mauve is from an accent wall in the entry of the office where I worked for 16 years. I think we did that painting in about 1990.

Looking at the pan made me think about all of the other painting projects that weren't represented. I guess I did a quicker job of cleaning up on those ones.
