I’m on the fence. I need help so I’m pitching this one out to you.
Here’s your chance to speak. Have your say. Lay it out there.
Indecision. A terrible place to visit.
It’s usually not a big deal for me. Just jump in with both feet and don’t look back…right?
You know those words are so easy to say, easier to type, not so easy to live by.
Here’s is the reason.
My cedar chest. Forget about the junk on top. Right now this chest is sitting in my entry. Right now it’s the only place I can put it. I don’t like it. It’s scratched, outdated and an eyesore. But it’s full of treasures and keepsakes. So I need it. I want to keep it because my wonderful mister bought it for me years ago. It’s solid and dependable. But it’s ugly.
I want to paint it. and I want to paint a plate shelf with pegs and hang up on the wall. and I want to suspend my antique mirror from the middle peg, it has a chain. and I want to remove my light and paint it and rehang.
I want to paint it all in black. I think. Trying to visualize all of this is driving me nuts. So I tried to see if I could trick myself with a visual aid.
I went over to picnik and played around with some shapes and colors.
This was the result.
The scale is way off of course. and the shelf and plates look like an 80’s bathroom vanity light bar. and my attempt to see the “light” (hahaha) in a black finish came out looking like a carnival tent. But maybe you see more than I do.
Forget about the white square…if you can, it’s just there to hid the rattan bookshelf that needed a place to sit for a moment and the Riley unload boxes of Christmas and some of it migrated for a day.
So can you see it? Can you visualize the chest painted in a rich black finish and lightly distressed? Maybe so typography on the front…Can you see it?
Oh! and here’s a look at my wall, one of them. As it is today. Crown molding to follow in January…I hope.
Ok. Let’s hear what you have to say.
