or IT'S done
And this just may be the year of Black for me or charcoal - I think I may be done with whites for awhile !
I'm loving the Restoration Hardware look of this piece :)
( I see a red door and I want to paint it black )
Am I aging myself again?
I originally bought this to make as a built in for the dining room - but we're not ready to tackle that room yet so decided to keep it in the 3 season porch for the rest of the winter.
However - I once again had a change of heart
Suzan says - I'm thinking this piece would be perfect for the den
John says - WHAT?
John says - We already installed a mantel that you had to have in there
Suzan says - So what? That can easily be uninstalled !
John says - Where the hell are you going to put that one?
Suzan says - Maybe in the dining room when we finish it !
Suzan says - AND I'm not even sure if I want it there - I just want to see it there first
John says - And if you don't like it - we have to drag it back out and reinstall the other one?
Suzan says - Something like that, yeah
John says - IT'S AN INSANE ASYLUM - I'M TELLING YOU I COULD HAVE YOU COMMITTED
John says - I'm NOT moving things around just to see if it works - who the hell does that ?
John says - You always say I have no vision - what's happened to yours all of sudden?
John says - This thing weighs a ton
John says - Yadda Yadda Yad.............................
I actually waited till he went out - and started the process on my own -
I disassembled the mantel
and brought the beast in on my own
after taking off the back piece - removing the doors - and taking the fireplace insert out so that I could actually move it ( inch by painful inch )
and guess what?
It's staying !
( thank God - because I really didn't want to take it back out and drag the mantel back in - this painting heavy furniture business is exhausting I tell ya ! )
But it fits the room perfectly - especially against the plank wall
It has a pull out shelf which is such a bonus - the room is so tiny that I'm sure this will be used !
( it still needs another coat of paint on that shelf - I wasn't going to show you but what the .................. )
I painted the interior with chalkboard paint - and stencilled a design on it with a chalk pen
It's what this room needed - though I didn't know it until I actually saw it in there
John says - It looks like a rain forest in here
John says - Why in God's name are there tree limbs on the wall?
Suzan says - I was going to hang the Picasso but I couldn't find it anywhere
Suzan says - IF YOU WANT TO SIT IN HERE AND WATCH HOCKEY GAMES - YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME AT LEAST ONE COMPLIMENT ON THIS THING !!!!!!!!!!!
John says - I'm going to look for a monkey to hang off one of them.
Suzan says - Could you get me a sock monkey? I LOVE them
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone !
