You White Up My Life

Sorry, that's been rummaging around in my brain
and I just had to say it.

Anything look different?

I'm almost afraid to admit it.
Yes, I have a gallon of white paint and I'm not afraid to use it...

I won't show the before picture
(ok, just a teensy tiny one, so you can't see
how fabulous it is, er...was.)

because I'm afraid some of you might come after me
and kick my fanny.

You know how it is when you have something that's totally gorgeous,
that you absolutely LOVE and adore,
but it's not quite right?

Something that you think about,
weigh the consequences,
(will it be a huge mistake and will I want it back like before?)
and obsess over?

maybe you're not ocd...
but I think you can relate.

Anyhoo, I just couldn't get past the idea that this wonderful
piece of furniture didn't match not one other thing in my house.

So out came the white paint and the brush and roller.
Now I can relax...
it's white.

and so as not to waste white paint,
I slapped some on a few other unfortunates around the house.

This print had a "terra cotta" colored frame

well, I guess because it IS terra cotta,
but what were they thinking?...
it didn't match at all.

and these old chalk french children had been gold.
You know what that means...

yup, nothing is safe around here.

and here's a completed project
that didn't require paint,
just some muscle.

We finally got the Dining Room chairs covered.
10, count 'em.
Thank goodness my husband is a helping hand!

I still have more chair slips to make
but that can wait for awhile.

Now, I'm just warning you;
Fall will be visiting here soon.
It's my favorite time of the year,
so at the end of August
summer gets booted out!
