A LITTLE DIVERSION?
Good morning everyone -
I needed to take a little break from packing last night - and by some fluke we opened our back door and this little end table was sitting there waiting to be " brushed "
The perfect little " diversion "
I first painted it entirely with Paris Grey but it looked a little boring - so I added a harlequin pattern using this
" diamond " cut out
until it looked like this ( sorry for the ridiculously terrible image - but I'm so tired I can barely type never mind play photographer - of which I'm lousy at, at the best of times :)
anyway you'll get the idea - also I marked x's where I wanted to paint them in to avoid confusion -
random thought - I don't know how I have any followers - really I don't -
I've had no time to reply to anyone
I've had no time to visit anyone
My photos are horrible
and I played with the idea - for 3 minutes - of taking a sabatical from blogging entirely
but really if the truth be known, right now, this little blog of mine is my only link to sanity and I mean my ONLY one..................at this moment in time. It's that or gone on medication lol
When we listed the house for sell - we did so knowing they don't go fast in this area - 2 of our neighbors have been listed for a year and 2 years respectively - so we figured we may as well list it if we wanted any chance at all of ( possibly, maybe ) selling it by Spring - but as you all know it sold in a week - leaving us 45 days to find a house ( of which it is still not a " done " deal - close - but not " done " yet ) and pack and organize everything that needs to be done )
Ok - random thought over.................
Here's the next step with the table :)
and here it is done
Except I DON'T LIKE IT - NOT ONE BIT LOL - I even sanded it all down and still didn't like it
And because I happened to be packing up the dining room - I had some charger plates just sitting there staring at me
I literally held the charger plate in place and painted all the perimeter in Pure White..................
( and then ran like crazy to wash it off the plate before it dried )
I'm not sure if I like it any better - but it's the teeniest little bit easier on the eye - and maybe it'll look good in my new ( wherever I end up ) all white living room
And then HE walks by......................
John says - Why did you paint an Easter Egg on the table?
That's exactly what it looks like
And now you know I can't keep it like that, right?
I hope I don't develop an imaginary friend with all of this insanity
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone -
For now I think I'd better stick with the task on hand and forget about painting furniture for a little bit lol
76 and counting
AND that's just the living room and dining room
