Despite my Texas roots—born and bred—I’m acutely aware of Chicago’s love for the Cubbies. I’m reminded of this romance each time my train glides past Wrigley field to and from work, or when I bump into a fan on game day. So when I came across Valspar’s new line of Cubs paint I thought, “Now that is love.” Valspar recently provided Wrigley Field with the paint to restore its marquee and scoreboard, and to commemorate the occassion, Valspar came out with three limited-edition colors—Pinstripe Blue, Ivy Green, and Marquee Red. The colors are perfect for a kids’ room or game room, although I’m already picturing husbands across Chicago trying to pull fast ones on their wives. “But you said you wanted a blue bedroom, Sweetie!” Available at all Chicagoland Lowe’s stores through December. A gallon is $25.
