Well here we go again,
I showed you a sneak peak a couple of days ago of this dresser
and after painstakingly doing this
and this ( again )
I ended up with this
the intention was to dark wax all over it to antique it but even so - it was just too stark - not warm at all
so I called John in for his advice................
Suzan says - What do you think
John says - Well you have too many colors going on there - white- silver - blue - gray and I don't like that you left the top drawer different
Suzan says - rolling her eyes - I didn't finish the top drawer because I'm not sure I like the direction I'm going with this
John says - shrugging his shoulders - It's fine
It's fine is not the response I'm looking for - ( nor is it the response I'm looking for when I get all dressed up to go out by the way John - just so you know )
Suzan says - Well then I'm going to change it
John says - YOU'VE WORKED ON THAT FOR 2 DAYS - AND NOW YOU'RE GOING TO CHANGE IT?
Suzan says - Yup - I don't like it - and I like it less now that you've said " it's fine "
John says - I can't win - I tell you I like it and.......................
Suzan says - No - you didn't say you liked it - you said it was " fine "
John says - but that means I like it -
Suzan says - " fine " does not mean you like it John - it means it's ok - it's mediocre - it's just " fine "
John says - you know Suzan you're certifiable - 100% - it's like you've got nothing better to do
John says - it's like living in a loony bin around here
John says - I'm going to bed
Suzan says - " fine "
And now I've changed it to this
And I think he's right - I am certifiable - I can picture myself in an asylum with a canvas and my water paints...............and a blank stare on my face.
God knows what color it'll be when I post the final photos LOL -
Oh and btw I've printed this and left it on his desk - a quote by Mark Twain that sums everything up beautifully
"Let us consider that we are all partially insane. It will explain us to each other; it will unriddle many riddles; it will make clear and simple many things which are involved in haunting and harassing difficulties and obscurities now" Mark Twain
Wish I'd read that many many years ago - there have been so many riddles in my life that have needed unriddling
