well I’m not sure about this but I went with it anyway.
I sent Riley to Hobby Lobby to pick up a few items to finish some projects.
One project was to fill a void.
I don’t like empty wall spaces that look empty because there has always been something there and now that there’s not, it’s driving me nuts.
I tried to live with it.
I can’t do it.
Remember this shot?
After the day of mudding?
See the space?
Not the huge empty wall, I have that space already done for now.
No, I mean between the windows.
I had seen something Miss Mustard Seed had done with some letters in her studio, made a bookmark in my head and went on with my day.
Empty space. MMS’s idea. It might work.
Her’s said M.A.K.E
so I thought mine could say D.I.N.E.
seeing that it’s in the dining room
but then while Riley was at Hobby Lobby her and I discussed other options
the letters weren’t on sale
(of course not, only when I don’t need them is when they would be 50% off)
I already had a “A”
we decided on E.A.T. that way I only have to buy two letters instead of four.
Riley said she didn’t want me to leave them gold. I told her not to worry, just get them and get home
my first thought was to grab my can of hammered silver spray paint, but I stopped and forced myself to think differently.
I’m toying with color ideas for my kitchen cabinets so I need some test subjects
these will do fine
I dug through my supplies
I chose ASCP Graphite, which by the way is what I used on the vintage sewing drawer on Day 17 but I accidentally wrote charcoal, but it was really graphite.
Got the letters all painted and they look good,
grabbed my hammer, nails and level and went to town.
do you think of a fraternity or sorority house when you see this?
Maybe I should go back to D.I.N.E.
oh…and I told ya the polka dots would disappear
now there’s just nice creamy walls!
