Keepin' it Real, Folks

In an effort to blog more "Real Time"
I had a decision to make.
Do I show you what I'm working on today
...or do I not?

I'm choosing to share a project in progress.



Now I know many of you will want to bop me 
for thinking this needs to be painted.
That's ok, I've taken a few jabs this last day or two.

We talked about "being real" and trying to be more 
in the moment on our blogs.
Not to make a "production" out of every blog post,
or strive for perfection.
But to just be ourselves.



So, I'm sharing what I'm up to today...




I've had this little jelly cabinet for about 30 years.
It's not old (in furniture years) 
and it's been moved all over creation and then some.
It has chunks of wood missing and deep scratches and gouges.
I know, you can't see them from here.
But I need something in this spot behind Hubbs' Chair.
I don't want something dark and "noticeable".
Too much of that already.
I'm thinking "blend in" has become my decor motto.
Especially in a small space
with too much furniture already.



This spot drives me crazy.
Nothing I've tried fits, or looks right.
It's one of those odd spaces, due to furniture placement.
So I need something to take up the negative space
and cover up this wall that feels lopsided.




So I'm in the process of painting it.
First coat is French Linen ASCP.
Not sure where I'll go from here.



But I'm blocking the Hallway traffic 
so I'll have to get it figured out pronto.
Thank goodness for chalk paint.
I did not want to sand this thing.
